Introduction AG0715

Post by AG0715 »

My name is AG0715, I am 26 from Houston Texas. I have enlisted as an 11X with a 40 option and report to OSUT on January 6. I was guided to this site to introduce myself and to take advantage of all the resources provided so that I can best prepare myself mentally for my training. I have been following the 12 week pre-Ranger workout plan provided to me by my recruiter and I am looking forward and thankful for any guidance I can receive here.

Welcome to the site AG0715. If you're leaving on 6 January from the Houston Meps I'll see you and more than likely take care of your contract. And If you don't have the Ranger Creed memorized lets just say your day will be longer than it needs to be.

Completion of task: "Why do you want to be a Ranger?"

I want to be a Ranger because the Rangers are the most elite infantry unit in the Army. Each Ranger specifically volunteered for the Regiment and underwent the toughest infantry training the Army has to offer. As the Ranger Creed illustrates this is not just a job or another MOS, being a Ranger is a profession, and each Ranger a professional. I want to serve with the best and I want to be the best. That's why I want to be a Ranger.
