My Intro...Glad to be here

Post by Roster#253 »

Just happened to stumble across your site while net surfing on a slow day here at work, and am glad that someone has seen fit to let me in…I’ve got a little bit different background than the vast majority of you and hope that I still “fit in” here somewhere.
Anyway, I was a very young, fresh out of FAOBC, Artillery Officer when I got my chance to attend RGR School in 2000. I was one of 13 Arty O’s that were offered the opportunity to attend the Infantry Officer’s pre-Ranger course before class 8-00 opened up. I needn’t tell any one of you about the next two + months, but when it as all said and done I was one of two Arty guys leaving with a tab. I was assigned to the 82nd and was an Rifle Company FSO (C/2-325th AIR) for the next 18 months. I stayed with the 82nd thru 2003 and deployed with the 2nd BCT for the initial invasion of Iraq.
I’m currently a Readjustment Counselor at a Vet Center in NJ. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and thanks to all of you for your service…it’s a real privilege to be part of such a fraternity. RLTW.

The way I became a Ranger and have earned the small amount of success I have had in life has been mostly due to one quality - determination. Lefty.
