Greetings to everyone on this forum, I'm new to this whole forums thing so please bear with me. So a little about me, I am a PV1 who just graduated basic training on September 29 and am currently at Ft Huachuca conducting AIT as a 35m. What turned me on to the idea of being a Ranger was my fellow AIT buddy who is on this forum as "Lionsden". He has an option 40 in his contract, and in talking with him and being presented the opportunity at AIT to volunteer to be an army ranger I have gained a lot of interest in striving to be in one of the world's premier fighting forces and push myself to my limits in the process. My last PT Test was a 276, which I'm hoping to be well over 300 by the time I graduate AIT, and overall my goal on this forum is to absorb the vast knowledge and try to learn what it takes to be an elite soldier from the warriors on this site. Thanks.

Always capitalize Ranger, you missed one, pay attention to detail.

Say hello to LionsDen and Fort Huachuca for me. I was there 32 years ago.

Welcome here.
