Are all Rangers trained in infantry tactics?

Post by ninjaman »

I'm sorry if this question has been asked here before.

Anyway, suppose someone went into the regiment as a medic, forard observer, etc. (non-combat arms MOS), would they be trained in the same infantry/combat tactics that all the combat arms Rangers are?
Romans 3:23-25

" 23 all have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God.
24 They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God set forth as an expiation, through faith, by his blood, to prove his righteousness because of the forgiveness of sins previously committed."

Yes, otherwise they wouldn't be able to function as a team.

Ummmm, FYI. FO's are a Combat Arms MOS, so are medics. They are "Low Density" jobs.

Silly......FO's, Medics...et al....

are NOT combat MOS 's....they don't really do a thing in combat...shit...they are just "in the rear with the gear"......kinda "guardians in the sand" so to speak.....






LOOK DOWN.....


































(anyone that believes that shit can eat a really big turd sammich....and I will feed it to you!!!)






FO's actually can save your life, or hook you up Dep. on the Mission....
Combat Medics WILL save your life AND hook you up REGARDLESS of the mission...

Where the fuck did this ass hat question come from?!?


WOW...just fucking WOW....

Only every 5th Ranger is trained in infantry tactics, however, they come out of the plane so fast that it appears that they are all infantry trained.....dumbass.

At the very least, whenever I could I always let everyone now where we were at. All FO's always had a map. Dunno what its like know, but not everyone got one when I was in. I assume everyones got a GPS now. Missions for me were endless inquiries of our location by the squaddies, mainly 'cause they wanted to know how much further we had to walk.
I remember we were among the first to get the first "hand-held" GPS's too. They were about as big as a pull-out car stereo.

I wish to know, Ranger ., because I want to know if I joined the Regiment as a medic, FO, etc. if I would still be able to learn the same tactics that the infantry get to learn, or if that is reserved for infantry Rangers.

I joined the Rangers as a medic and after RIP I could beat off equally well using either hand while road marching or fighting TIGERS! Because in RIP you FIGHT TIGERS!
