Introduction - Emmanuel

Post by Emmanuel15 » January 9th, 2020, 9:08 pm

Hello Rangers,

My name is Emmanuel, I'm 16 years old and a junior in high school. I intend on enlisting as a Forward Observer with a Ranger contract when I graduate. Since middle school I knew I wanted to join the Army, and as a Ranger only in the last year or so and have been taking this aspiration seriously since. I'm choosing to pursue being a Ranger because I want to be in an organization that pushes you to be the best you can every day, and does not settle for mediocrity.

I found the forum around six months ago when I did a google search looking for more information on becoming a Ranger, and have been lurking the site since then. I figured I should finally make an account a few days ago and start taking things such as fitness and mentorship more seriously than I already have.

Welcome here Emmanuel, there's lots to learn and you have the benefit of having plenty of time to absorb it all. Do well in school, stay fit and stay out of trouble.

Hello Rangers,
Hey Emmanuel,

Welcome to ArmyRanger.com. As you probably already noticed, if you're serious about joining the 75th Ranger Regiment this is an excellent way to get going. What do you do besides go to school? Work? Play sports? Video games?

As a Forward Observer I approve of your job choice. What is it about the job that interests you?

Next time you see this and have spare time, research how to take an APFT (Implied task, give yourself one if you can) as well as look into and tell us about the Army's new physical fitness test, the ACFT.

Ranger Disinfertention,

I currently don't play any sports, I do play video games and spend time with friends often. As far as work, I'll be working part time at a grocery store very soon. I also plan on getting back into working out everyday.

The role Forward Observers play on the battlefield calling in CAS and Artillery appealed to me more than any other MOS. Once I read about SFC Kristoffer Domeijj and the things he did in Afghanistan and Iraq it solidified my plan on enlisting as a 13F.

I will definitely look into how to take an APFT and ACFT tonight, and will take one as soon as I'm able to.
