Re: RFI: Med info to update Units' MedSop

Obviously, there are OPSEC considerations, but if you want the latest and greatest? Ranger Medic Handbook. Without Question.

If I was in charge of a unit medical section, I would adopt it verbatim.

Re: Voting changes-2014

Tough, that is exactly what happened. One friend of mine went to 3 different places before he was finally told, " oh, you have to go down to city hall and re-register..." Because he was on his way to work at the fire dept., he didn't didn't have the the to wait for hours in line. It is entirely poss...

Re: Voting changes-2014

There were a lot of shenanigans going on here in the PRC (people's republic of connecticut)2. Hard to tell who would be the benefactor because the election was so close (as in "All the President's Men", ie-follow the money..) but somehow things were redistricted at the state. There were several thou...

Re: Introduction: George

Young man, you are the first person I have ever heard state that the Marines weren't tough enough . I knew of a handful of Rangers who were naturalized citizens. You have a very tough road ahead, I must say, but it can be done. This is definitely one case where tenacity will pay dividends. Good luck...

Re: Introduction: Kyle

Welcome. Spent a few weekends in Knoxville teaching medical classes to the Navy Reserve unit there. Cool town, Knoxville. The funkiest nightclub I ever saw was there. I wonder, is it still open? It was in an old factory, and had like 5 different themes going on inside. There was a giant swing hangin...

Re: Intro: Jimming

I am always baffled as to how one thing gets cleared, and another doesn't. While there is a well defined AR concerning conditions, how there is still a lot of subjectivity in the process. More than a few times someone would make it to Battalion with a condition should have kept them from enlisting, ...

Re: INTRO- John

Worst-case scenario, you will have to wait till your next re-up and request RASP. Just remember, in the military, for every cat that says "No", there is someone above them who can say "yes"

Re: Familial Ramifications

Before you answer, Let me throw my 2 sheckels in the mix.. I was in the National Guard for 6 years before I went on active duty and into the Ranger Regiment. Just before I shipped, they had the 4 Ranger students die in Florida phase of Ranger school. The day it made the news my father called me to a...

Re: Introduction: Mike

Welcome to the site MIke, not bad advice from Ranger Sleepy Doc about getting some college, but you've got to do what you want to do. You know yourself and your motivations. I was 18 yrs old, 2 weeks out of high school when I started basic, at Ft Benning, GA, with a Ranger contract. I was a PVT1, a...

I'd like to be part of a group where everyone is there because they chose to be there and were willing to do whatever it took to get there. I'd imagine there is a higher level of professionalism with less people complaining about how their recruiter screwed them over.. That, my friend, sums up what...

Umm.. Yeah.. You are absolutely correct, it is "your bad".. In more ways than you know.

Welcome, young man. As Jim said, if you truly want to be a Ranger, you have come to the right place. I was not here at the sites origins, but have been a fairly active member for almost 10 years. On speaking to him about it, we agreed one of the best things about this site is that it has partially m...

Re: Introduction: Nick

Welcome. I'm not sure if this is still the case, but it used to be that the only way a prior service soldier could enlist into the AF was if they were coming from and going into USSOC command (read; Ranger, SF, 160th SOAR into Pararescue) They are the most particular about their enlistment standards...
