Introduction- Eli

Post by Eli431 »

Hi rangers!

I'll try to make this a short intro, so here we go. I'm a 17 year old senior, live in Phoenix AZ, and of course aspire to earn my place in Ranger regiment one day. I'm a wrestler, and have my first match next week so wish me luck! I come from a miltary/law enforcement family. Both my grandpas were Airforce, one served in Korea as a fighter pilot and the other Vietnam. My dad was an Airforce C-130 crew chief and served in operation Just Cause. My uncle retired from infantry a few years back and his son is currently serving in artillery. I look forward to learning from this site and you all.

Thanks

Eli, you have plenty of time to improve on your now established PT baseline. I suspect that you failed to read and heed the guidance that was in the PM from Bronco. Attention to detail is a hallmark of a successful Ranger. Never, never quit!
