Ranger Verification.

Post by army85 »

Hey Rangers,
I am sure I really don't even need to ask but will for the amusement.
I had a trucker pick up a shipment at my warehouse the other day and we struck up a conversation. I told him that I served 4 years in the army in Field Artillery. He said yeah, I was in the Army too and got out after getting back from Afghanastan, I was shot in the leg and was medically discharged. At this point I asked him who he served with and he said the 75th Ranger Regiment in Fort Benning. I asked him if he was in a Ranger Battalion, and he said yeah I was and I am glad to be out of that now.
I asked him which one he was with, and he said 1st Battalion at Fort Benning> (???) I said Fort Benning, I thought they were at Fort Stewart?
I then asked him his Ranger class number in which he replied
"Hell, It has been to long ago I can't remember.
Ok, I said! What is your first standing order, to which he replied" I forget"
I told him it was kind of strange that he should forget that seeing that it is "Don't forget nothing"
I went on with various questions about Rangers which he had no clue.
I even invited him to this site and told him there were plenty of Rangers who would like to hear from him again. His reply was that he did'nt have the time.
I finally told him that he was a lying sack of shit and told him to leave, and I would call his supervisor and have them dispatch another truck.
I don't know if I handled that correctly or not, but I was already pissed from the way the day had been and he was the closest target.
I have his name for anyone interested.
Sorry for the long spill...

Sounds like the order to "Fire for effect!" came down and you followed through. Good on you.

If you're in a fair fight, you didn't plan it properly.

You did well... BUT...

Here is a suggestion for you. Go back and read the stickies and faq's on how to properly address a Ranger on this site. It has been covered over and over again.

I am positive there are others that will not tell you in such a nice way.

Cheers!! 8)

Edit:

I stand corrected. I just was informed that Vets don't have to use the same terms as the Newbs or Deps... Ok, smoking myself for being all fucked up.

Get a picture of this douche bag the next time he delivers to you. Then we can post it on the wall.

Why?
Because since the start of the poser hunt club and now that we have so many members of the poser kill team and so many verified kills in the trophy room (and many more in the pipeline :D ), I believe we here at ArmyRanger.com have raised the bar and raised the art of poser hunting to a new level.

So to answer your question, POSER HUNTING IS NOW AN OFFICIAL SPORT !!! That's why it was in the sports section! :D 8)

That is good RTO Ranger,
I was thinking it was like a sport(Rodeo) I was roping him in.
Will do Ranger Bravo57, although I will be suprised if he does deliver or pick up again. :lol:
