Introduction (Trying this again)

Post by jjhoct5 »

Hi, I'm J.J.! I'm 21, and I live in New York. I am a graudate student, and a social worker, working mainly with kids. My boyfriend is in ranger school and will graduate at the end of the month. He lives in Fayetteville, NC and works as a lieutenant at Ft. Bragg.

I'm not in the ARMY but I do want to thank you guys for all that you do because without a national defense, especially rangers, I wouldn't be able to go to school and life safely. I think many people take that for granted.

I want to apologize for the first post, I didn't realize exactly how the 'intro' thing worked- so here's mine! Thanks for the replys anyway, I appreciate it.

Take care-

He answered: "The terrain was beginning to constrict and our hit time was coming close. So I put us in a Ranger file."
