Ranger Recruiters at OSUT

Post by Warrior94 » March 4th, 2014, 12:28 am

I have a couple questions for y'all. Excuse me if this has been covered before, I have searched throughout the site and still no luck.

I was wondering if there is always a Ranger Recruiter at OSUT? If so, is there any other ways to keep you from attending RASP?

Thanks,
Cole

I got recruited after OSUT when I was in Airborne School. I don't remember seeing A Ranger liaisons there in OSUT, but that was long ago. It may have changed.

Roger Ranger ManchuV,

It seems that I am a little misinformed on how the process works. When you were in Airborne School, if a soldier wanted to attend RASP and they did great on the PFT and met all other requirements was there anything else that could hold them back from RASP and eventually the 75th Ranger Regiment?

There's something you're not telling us. What specifically are you worried about?

Ranger rangertough,

I am confident in my abilities physically and mentally. I will take care of anything and everything I can that is in my control. I am worrying about the things that are out of my hands. I just want to know is there a Ranger Liaison at every Airborne School? And if there can be anything else that would hold me back?

I would like an Option 40, but I do not see it as completely necessary. As long as I know for sure I will just get a chance to go to RASP from Airborne School I would be fine.

Go back and read your introduction. Why did you not try to get an Option 40 when you met with your recruiter?

Ranger Jim,

I told him that would be the only way I enlist! He seemed confident he could get me one too. He was just not sure how long it would take, and that is what kind of bothers me. I know getting an Option 40 would be the path of least resistance for sure.

So, you have not taken your oath yet?

Have you taken your physical and the required written tests to ensure you are qualified?

Ranger Jim,

I have not, but he said by the looks of my Pre-ASVAB, my score on the real one should be fine. I am unsure about the rest, however I found a post on here that showed the pre-requisites for an Option 40 contract, and I seemed to meet them. I just need to get it done!

Did you take the time to read the sticky note that I have at the very top of this forum?

It has plenty of information there, and probably answers the spirit of your question, even if it doesn't directly answer the specifics of it.

If you don't suck, and you put yourself in the right position, you will be able to make things happen. If you can't learn to make things happen for yourself, then Regiment might not be the best fit for you.

One of my buddies in RASP had a drill sgt that refused to let anyone sign a Ranger contract. The day of the turning blue ceremony, at the end of OSUT, he went to the Regimental recruiters, told them he had a 300 pt score and wanted his orders changed from ft. bliss TX to RASP.

Years down the road, he has graduated RASP, has his tab, deployed a few times, and now sold his soul to be a cadet at West Point. Point is, he was proactive and made things happen.

There is a Regimental Recruiter who works right next to Airborne School in the "patches" building. One of his duties is to brief all interested Soldiers on Regiment and assist them in the application process.

Your Drill Instructors can say whatever they want, but once you're at Airborne School they will not be able to hold you back from attempting RASP.

Make sure and get with your Airborne School instructors and let them know what you want to do. They should be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck.
