Re: Rick - NG to 75th

Also to address the question of whether or not I work out. I do, I do weight training 4 times a week and crossfit/swim 3 times a week. Its a start.. but it sounds like you have an uphill battle ahead. Completely within your reach, though. I have a friend who was 5'10" and 280ish. He started wo...

Re: Rick - NG to 75th

Point of parliamentary procedure, your worship... First; You are considered prior service, no matter what you think. Active guard is prior service. Second; being in the service as a PFC, you should know how the chain of command works. The same goes for here. Doubly so if you are lucky enough to make...

Re: Introduction-David

Welcome. You, my friend, have picked one of the most thankless jobs and one of the most necessary jobs all in one. The grunts can talk all day about how they are the most important, but they won't get very far without beans, bullets, band-aids, money and mail. Guess where you fit in. This is one of ...

Re: Introduction

Ranger Sleepy Doc, you mentioned there are always options. Is there another path I overlooked besides the FAST class? You could wait two years, get some college, work on that run time, and then take the ASVAB again. If you take it more than once, the highest score counts. You could say, "Fuck ...

Re: Introduction

Yeah, it might take going to a plain vanilla unit for a bit and taking the FAST class. but anything worth doing is going to throw all the hurdles it can muster at you. The question is; how will you deal with such setbacks? There are always options, always

Good luck with it

To reiterate what Tough was saying, "HALO" is a very specific discipline, and that unless you have gone through the Military Free Fall parachuting course, then you are in fact not "HALO jumping". You may be using a civilian, ram-air (read "square" style) chute and jumpi...

Re: Sitrep from Grim666

Awsome job, brother. You are to be commended, as is your spouse. It is a difficult path to follow as it is, but with a family in tow? She deserves some kind of medal. I had a friend once tell me that when her husband was in a regular unit, she hardly ever saw him. but once he was in the Regiment he...

Re: Son At RASP

Welcome. The 1SG in charge of RASP is a friend of mine, and suffice it to say he is in VERY capable hands. The cadre definitely won't let him squeak by. When he finally gets his Tan Beret, you can rest assured that he will have earned every bit of it.

I can't think of the name of the site off hand, but I you search under "topographic maps" there is a site that will custom make one for you and deliver it to your door. I think it takes a week or two. When you order it, it literally is a checklist of what you want it to look like; scale, t...

Re: HELP APPRECIATED!

I came to this site for some advice from some real Rangers. It seems as though I've only found some guys behind computers trying to be all hooah hooah. Anyways, I can become a Ranger like you. Anyone can. It just matters how much you want it. And trust me, I want it. I respect that you guys are Ran...

Re: Introduction-VinDiesel

For trivia: when I worked at US Army School of the Americas (USARSO) at Fort Gulick, Panama (Canal Zone) 1968-69, we had a 4 - 6 week Recondo-type course (taught in Spanish) and the graduates were awarded a Commando Tab. The students were from all over Central and South America. Since USARSO moved ...
