Rangers yesterday we took our class up PT test. I didn’t do as good as I was hoping and quite honestly I’m pretty disappointed but still hopeful that I made the cut for the next class. I got

PU- 56
SU- 88
2mi- 13:25

We had about 30-40 people get dropped today because they failed the PT test. I plan on letting you guys know if I classed up or not when they tell us

Hey Avonte. Any news? I think you mentioned in the Discord that you thought you will end up waiting for a bit which gives you a chance to get in better shape, nothing wrong with that. Check in when you can!

Ranger Disinfertention, yeah so for whatever reason I didn’t make the class up roster which was kind of weird. There were guys who had lower pt scores than I did but still classed up. I think it might have something to do with the fact that I had a psych interview less than 24 hours before the roster got put out so I’m still just trying to figure out when I’ll know for sure that I can stop worrying about that. But in the end it will benefit me in the long run because I’ll have an extra 5-6 weeks to get my pushups and run scores a lot higher.

To all the Rangers today I was dropped from the Pre-Rasp course due to my background screening. It sucks but it still isn’t the end. I had a 1 on 1 conversation with the 1SGT and he told me that he wanted me to come back in a year, I was told that if I can be successful at my regular unit in for a year and be a good soldier at my unit then they said that when I came back then next time I did my screening they would see that and then allow me to go through selection to Regiment. This absolutely isn’t the end and I plan on coming back one year on the dot.

Avonte,

This is something new they are doing so I can't really relate to it. As you said, it's not the end. I'll update your rank. Please check in with us and let us know where you get orders to go to. There are some good practices when arriving to your unit that can help set you up for success if you do want to return. Just understand that typically the shortest time on station you can do is about 2 years but each experience is different.

Ranger Disinfertention, I’m not too sure how long it will be until I get a chance to come back. When I spoke to the First Sergent he told me the best thing I should do is when I get to my unit to tell my team leader that I want to be the best soldier I can possibly be. I also want to try to get a slot into ranger school at my unit. I figure if I get my ranger tab that would be the best way to prove I can be successful in the regular army. If I can get my tab that means when I come back to selection and I get screened again they will see that I have been successful and will actually allow me to go through RASP 1. I don’t remember where I read it on the site but one time someone said something that stuck with me “you didn’t volunteer to join Regiment because you thought it would be easy.” The road isn’t over it’s just a little longer than I expected.
