I would suggest you read it again several times and make sure what Ranger Grim is saying, sinks in completely.

Then, take a step back and give it some thought.

If at that point, you're not 100% sure or there's some hesitation, just the least little bit, no matter how small, I would rethink your future in its entirety.
Can't add much to what was said. I had to look up your MOS, to be honest, and I'm still not sure what you will be doing. I hope things work out the way you want them to.

I officially swore in last week. It feels great to have it all in writing.

I'm working on my task list and keeping up with PT.
I'll update as I progress more.
Fix your ship date and pay attention to detail.....always. Sometimes, it's the little things that get you maimed or killed. Even worse, is when it's one of your Buddies due to your negligence.

I'm not sure my exact date but my estimation would be sometime in the beginning of September. I start Airborne School September 14th.

Ranger Sleepy Doc,

I found these videos to be pretty helpful to get an idea of what my MOS would be doing.

Ship date fixed what?! Buddy? Pal? Motherfucker Centermass?

The correct response is always "Roger Ranger Centermass.", or the correct name of the Ranger addressing you. Believe it or not these Rangers are trying to help you, and expect nothing in return for their time and effort except your total attention to detail and 110% effort, otherwise you're just wasting time here.

Do push-ups.

Roger, Ranger Cams. 25+1 Push ups will be performed at my break.

Roger, Ranger Centermass, my ship date has been fixed.

...and?? A Ranger from RHQ Recruiting (as shown in his sigline, again, attention to detail sucks) asks' you a question and this is how you answer him?

Way to eye-fuck the chefs wife while asking him to cook your dinner, drone.

Flutter kicks. 3 sets of 20, 4 count. If you don't know what that means, show some initiative and look it up. Don't fucking cheat yourself. The pain will help with your memory problems.

Roger, Ranger Cams, my apologies. Flutter kicks will be performed along with my Push-ups.

Ranger, Darth_ted_82, based on my AIT timeline I would guess my AIT graduation date is somewhere around the beginning of September.

As was pointed out, I'm a recruiter in Regiment. To go further, 12 series and Leonard Wood are in my AO. I WILL be tracking you; I track every RASP candidate in my AO and talk with their PSGs and cadre. I will answer your PM in a bit. I'm busy right now.

Attention to detail again. Push until you fucking fall on your face, then roll right on over and commence to flutter kick while you think about this.

Who are you to change a Rangers screen name to suit your own needs? Pure laziness. If you think I'm being too harsh on you for small, seemingly unimportant infractions, then you have no idea of the pain that awaits you young man. I'm not trying to bully you or be an internet toughguy, I'm trying to help you remove your head from your ass.

Don't answer me. Don't PM me. Just square yourself away with a sense of urgency. Somebody is always watching.
