Lower jumper has the right of way. Sounds like the LT forgot his SAT.

Rangers,

I received my jump wings Friday! We report to Pre-RASP tomorrow morning. There's a good chance I won't start RASP until Jan. 5th. Fourteen weeks of Pre-RASP would be most unfortunate. More time to prepare better, but that's more time in limbo. The report date for that class is Dec. 22nd, so I'm concerned about my Christmas Exodus block leave. Whatever happens is out of my control, but I'm not liking the way things are turning out. Ranger rangerjd, I'm glad you never saw that 1LT again, that's insane. Ranger Slowpoke, I'll do my best to update every week.

Respectfully,

Great job Airborne. Give yourself a set of blood wings. Drive on and never, ever, quit.

Appreciate the honor, but it's undue. Veteran, Airborne, SSG, are all earned.

Roger SSG IEDmagnet. Knocking out 50+1 for the inattention to detail.

Rangers,

I started Pre-RASP today with smsst14, labod, Giant, woody, and gwill7. Two quitters. The Rangers hinted that we'll be starting RASP on Nov. 17th and having our Christmas leave somewhere around Dec. 19th. I'm more motivated than ever. I have eating right, working out, and staying out of trouble scheduled for my personal time for the next few weeks. Last week, I talked to the guys that started RASP yesterday. Pre-RASP is where they began to see a lot of guys slip and lose motivation. I will not be one of those guys. After seeing some of the new privates in Regiment walking around, I know my goal is very attainable.

Respectfully,
