right on. i can't believe so many of those lamers would actually write sh*t like "as for the rangers, its the easiest elite force to get into..." "army grunts are a bunch of fucking Nancy's..." "When the rangers got their asses kicked in Somali, the somalians waited until the Marines were gone before they started any shit." those guys musta been drunk when they wrote all that crap
They weren't drunk they are are just fucking idiots. As for saying that the Rangers are the easiest elite group to get into. Tell them to say that after they they went through RIP and Ranger School. Rangers kicked fucking ass in Somalia. They were way out numbered and they still never gave up. RANGERS LEAD THE WAY. FUCK THEM
" from my admittedly civilian perspective" This quote from the end of the authors article sums it up. First of the author dosn't know dick about the trainging that is involved for either of the services. He watched two T.V. shows and and called it good. He had no idea that the reason Marine boot camp is 3 to 4 weeks longer than Army's is because Marines are all trained as rifle men, or Marine eqivlant to the Army's infantry. The Army recognizes that since the Army is so large it does not need to have every soldier trained extensivly in infantry skills they just need to know the basics, hence bacis training. Second on his point about the rife training there has got to be a credible reason why the Army trains the way they do. They have been around since the begining of this nation and we are the strongest one in the world, obviously they are doining it right. Also the Army's video was made for recruitement purposes and it was shot at relaxion Jackson (no disrespect at all). It was made to sooth potenial recruites' fears about the toughness of boot camp (for people who don't want to be as hooah as most of us on this site, thats a good thing) The Marines' show was shot as an inside report, and edited to look as tough as possible. Finally, that bull shit about Rangers being the easiest of the elite forces to get into, I say to that BULL SHIT. The wash out rate for RIP is almost the same as that of the Navy seals, and even when you make it past RIP, you are still not officialy accepted you have to prove yourself. The panzy that rote that article has probably not gotten away from his computer and cyber porn for years, his ass probably couldn't run a mile or do even ten pushup. Those of us who aspire to be RANGERs know that its an honor to be a part of that elite group, the army, and the infantry as a whole because of the history behind it. I don't care what that queer says in that article, its tough as hell. In my opinion it holds no crediblity at all untill the author gets off his lazy ass and trys it. Damn that was long, lol sorry,I was venting

Marines are highly under funded and I almost feel sorry for those poor guys that are using all of the Army's left over gear. I believe they are still totting around M16s and humping PRC119's and mixing women with men at all basic training installations including their combat arms training.........that is ridiciulous.......those poor Marines.
Until most of you who have responded to this thread actually spend a few years in the military, you ought to refrain from contributing to conversations that compare the services. You don't yet have the experiential foundation from which to make such comparisons. End of story.
