Introduction- Allen

Post by Teach412 » February 12th, 2020, 7:08 am

Greetings Rangers,

First and foremost, it’s a pleasure to be in the presence of past, present, and future Rangers. Thank you for the wealth of knowledge provided on this site.

My name is Allen and I’m an inner-city teacher and current graduate student. I’ll be finishing with my M.E.d next spring. I’m planning on enlisting as an 09S, Officer candidate. I’m hopeful in branching either Infantry or Signal. After years of lurking these forums, I would like to take advantage of the knowledge provided, resources, and possible mentoring opportunities in regard to OCS, BOLC, Ranger School, RASP II, and life as a commissioned officer (Specifically, as an officer in The 75th Ranger Regiment).

As a kid, I’ve always been interested in the Army. My uncle was an infantry officer (Ranger qualified) and had a profound impact on my character and development. Growing up, he turned me on to the amazing exploits of the Vietnam-era Rangers and LRRP units. I was amazed by the bravery and gallantry that these gentleman possessed. As I got older, I started to develop an interest in military history and strategy that eventually fueled my passion to teach history.

Now at 24, I’m more compelled than ever to start my career in the Army. As cliche as it may sound, I’m looking forward to leading from the front and excelling at my job as a learner, leader, and teacher in the Army.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to become a member on this site. I’m looking forward to learning more about Rangers.
