Four Winds Curse?

Post by Dangit »

Making plans to head to back to Benning for a RASP1 grad in a few weeks and celebrate a new Ranger at Four Winds...
Now hearing about a "Four Winds Curse" that says an untabbed Ranger consuming one of their signature Ranger burgers will fail to get his tab later ;) ..... So whats the scoop? Don't want to jinx the kid! :o

I don't know if the curse is true or not, but I had my first Ranger Burger about an hour after RS graduation. I didn't want to offend the fickle hand of fate.

And I'll bet it made it's grand exit 10 minutes later?

My digestive system was WAY screwed up for weeks. A few bites of anything and I'd be riding the Mexican rocket ship.

I can't say that I ever heard about it being bad luck to have one before you got you tab. Must have been fate that I never ate one until shortly after I got out of school

There must be a 4-5 year expiration date on the curse: I had a burger there in December 2005, failed Ranger school in August 2006. I didn't touch another one and managed to get my tab in April 2010.
