Introduction - luckyonethree

Post by luckyonethree »

Hi Rangers and other members,

My name is Kade, I'm 19, and I'm a high school graduate. Currently I'm enrolled in my second semester of college. I signed my contract back in January, and I'm proud to say I ship out 20140528. I've been roaming this forum for the past couple of months, taking in all of the information you Rangers have provided us with. I can't thank you men enough for this. If you're wondering why I took so long to participate in the forum after having known about it for a couple of months, I wanted to take in as much info as possible so I wouldn't end up asking questions that are dumb/already answered.

PFT taken on 20140322:
PU: 50
SI: 52
2 mi: 14:00
Pull-ups: 4

I understand my scores are pitiful, but I plan to score a 300 before I ship out. Again, thank you Rangers for all of your insight, and I look forward to learning more from you Warriors.

Respectfully,

Ranger Jim and Ranger Slowpoke,

Thank you for acknowledging me. I apologize for not stating my contract. I have an 11x Option 40. I will put it in my signature now. Ranger Jim, time is not on my side, but determination is.

Do not plan! DO OR DONOT, to plan only is to fail...... to paraphrase a young friend of mine, Yoda.

You have very little time left. You'd best get off your ass and start training! OSUT and Airborne School are not places to improve your APFT scores, you have to ship in the best physical condition of your life and then work hard during training to maintain your conditioning. Don't get stupid and injure yourself, but you're going to have to train hard.

It wasn't my intention to lay down a verbal beating, but rather to impress you with how little time is left. I wish good health and good luck as you seek your goal.

And to paraphrase another friend of mine..... Never, ever quit!

Ranger Slowpoke,

I'm proud to say I immediately caught your Yoda reference. I will admit (my pt scores are showing it), that I haven't been working as hard as I should have, although I've significantly increased my scores since January. Shamed to same, yes my pt scores were way worse than they are now. Also, Ranger Slowpoke, lay down all the verbal beatings you please. I'll take as many servings as you can dish.
