Intro - dbh

Post by dbh »

Rangers,

I graduated RASP 1 on 5 November 2010 with class 09-10. I'm assigned to B Co. 1/75.

I stumbled across this site just over a year ago and it is truly a valuable treasure to anyone that wants to make it into the Ranger Regiment. Thanks to all who have posted bits and pieces of their knowledge, wisdom, and expertise but especially my mentor Ranger HakweeRgr. His advice and support helped me Ranger up and drive on even when injuries set me back during my journey. 5 November 2010 is the best day of my life and I am humbled to finally join your ranks.

Congratulation on becoming a Ranger. If your parents are interested, there is a parents forum available to them to help them through any questions they may have about being a parent of a Ranger.

Welcome to our regiment. By now you know that the easy part is over.

Update your info, your ship date and civilian PT scores make for a good chuckle. :)
Opt.40 to Ranger with only 6 posts, including your intro & your RASP grad announcement. Talk about "Read much/post little".
Well done.

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.

Now that you earned the Beret, the tough part begins.
1) You gotta keep it.
2) You still have a long way to go.
But at least the first few steps of the journey are complete. Never, never quit!
