Rangers,

Brief SITREP-- My recruiter was able to secure/reserve an 11x opt 40 contract shipping out JAN 05 2015. I leave for the hotel Sunday afternoon and will go to MEPS on Monday. Hopefully everything goes smoothly and I will be able to sign that contract.

I will keep everyone updated.

The good news - guys who go in 'later' in life tend to have the maturity and fortitude to do well.

The bad news - at 26 they'll all call you 'old man.' :lol:

Seriously, your background and experience give you a favorable advantage. Sometimes it takes living life a little to see what you really want, and that desire is what will keep you pressing on over those who quit. I look forward to hearing of your progress. Just don't quit.

It's also legal to use the fact that you enlisted to become a Ranger in order to get laid.

NEVER QUIT........ never quit at a task and never quit on yourself.......... it really is that simple!

Ranger Jim, done!


Ranger PocketKings, Roger that haha. I hope that my "old man" maturity will help me in my journey, but I still have much to learn and with that age will come great responsibility to lead my peers-- something I cannot and will not take lightly.


Ranger Slowpoke, Roger haha! Maybe I will test that out one night out when I'm not busy preparing. I'm a bit hesitant to advertise my enlistment for personal gain as I haven't accomplished anything yet. Lastly, never quit, DONE!


I genuinely appreciate all the words of advice and support! I'm still learning the ropes of being a "DEP'er" on the forums so I promise to do my best to post the appropriate information when requested/required. I hope one day I will be able to call you all my brothers.


RLTW!
