Well rangers, Day 1 Sarn't Airborne did not think my pushups were to his standard. So I had to re-test pushups.I was a little shook, but I dug deep and my 2nd grader had no problems with them.situps were a breeze and I ran 13: 00 minute 2mi. After that every thing else has been smooth sailing. We are dirty nasty legs hoo haa airborne!

I have a 2nd grader too that could get thru airborne school with one PBJ and an 8 oz school milk. If you're having problems with BAC PT, you're in for a rude fucking awakening my friend.

Ranger Buzz,

My first jump was a perfect as you could expect, using the T-11 helped.

on Sunday we did 1 t-11 jump (hollywood).
on Monday we did 3 t-10 jumps(hollywood).
on Tuesday we did 1 t-10 jump (combat equipment).

All in all my jumps were good. i always had decent landings. Airborne school is done and RASP is in two months!!!! Time to kick my training up a notch.
