One quick question for the Rangers. Are there any regulations concerning brothers assigned to the same Battalion? Is it forbidden? Is it recommended?

brothers

Post by Nugget »

I went to BN with a guy that had a brother in another company who was a SSG. He always got smoked more because his team leader thought he was getting special treatment from his brother.

There where two brothers in 2nd Batt. during my time frame, but they kept them apart by having them in different companies.

Not sure if there is S.O.P. or reg on this issue.

We had twins in our company. They were in the same platoon for a while, but after a couple of weeks one of 'em went to another platoon. That was right around the 2000 timeframe, I don't know if the regs have changed.

Thought I would update my son's progress through OSUT. He is in week 9 at this time. He was selected as squad leader early on a few weeks ago. Until yesterday, he was the only one who held on to the squad leader position out of the original 4. We just got a phone call last night. He was sitting in the Drill Sgt's office. He was just promoted to Platoon Sgt. He had 15 guys under him as squad leader but now has 57 guys. We are traveling south on Easter weekend for our first visit and are looking forward to seeing both soldiers if possible.

The Wilson brothers were in Cco 3/75 back '89.

And the Shlichte(sp) brothers in '87/'88 or so.
