Well, Zach, a man has only one opportunity to make a favorable initial impression. Your screen name piques my curious mind. Please tell us more about yourself, and why you want to become a Ranger. If you truly want to earn a place in the 75th Ranger Regiment, you came to the right site..

Welcome and congratulations for enlisting to become an Army Ranger. Best of luck to you, with luck meaning preparedness meeting opportunity. You have the opportunity, spend a good portion of the time you have before you ship getting prepared.

Your intro is weak, you are a No-Go. Tighten up your shot group and drive on.

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