"Have cheese want peanut butter" Words from a Hungry Ranger.



What now mother****er?

Just got done with Ranger school. I was going to write some big long dossier about it but I'm feeling really lazy about it and am much more into my beer and talking to my girlfriend.... so if you have questions, want advice or whatever then go for it.

General advice? Any pointers for Ranger School hopefuls? How long did you sleep for when you finished?

General advice:
Get Wigwam socks and Rocky boots, pricy but worth it.

Don't bring anything you can't afford to loose.

Sleep with your MREs in your bivy sack because there are chow thieves out there and you'd be lucky to get a replacement out of the RIs.

Bring three or four headlamps, people will loose them and peers is a big part of passing... everyone likes a guy with extra gear to loan out... get at least one really "nice" headlamp for yourself as you will use it every day.

Tie EVERYTHING to yourself... if not you will loose your knife, GPS, compass/ whatever.

Get a Benchmade knife, cheap knives are just that... cheap and will fall apart or loose their edge fast.

They don't check your watch to see if it's a GPS or not... but don't use your watch to get a grid when the RI asks if you know where you are.

Bring lots of AAA batteries, you can get AAs from the RIs but not AAA.

Bring 12 to 15 t-shirts and 20-25 pairs of socks, don't expect to do any laundry in Darby or Florida.

Expect to want to quit every day... the trick is to quit in the morning. You are going to have to finish whatever even you are doing anyway so tell yourself you will quit in the morning. After your hour or two of sleep and half an MRE you will feel better and go on through the day hating life and telling yourself you will have that stake tomorrow after you quit the next morning.... sooner or later you will find yourself out of mornings and with a bit more on your left shoulder.

Honestly Darby just sucks balls, Mountains will smoke your *** like never before and Florida isn't that bad at all.... Pass Darby, don't quit Mountains and Florida will take care of itself.

Oh and remember they have a numbers game, the have to recycle "x" number of guys to help the next class along so listen to the recycles as some of them are actually really squared away. If you happen to get caught up in the quota don't quit... NEVER QUIT... if you quit you will hate yourself, everyone that I have talked to that quit said they regretted it.

The closest I'll ever be to being a ranger is when I play Modern Warfare 2.




Congrats, bro. Now the real **** happens.

Thanks guys, we actually had two Marines graduate with us. One is a CPT with his own Recon platoon... the other was enlisted and I never really got the chance to talk to him but both guys were really squared away.

Thrilla, what Battalion are you in? I'm in the BRT.

Edit: A few other things.

Everyone gets candy in their care packages. Ask for things like cheezitts, goldfish, trail mix, pringles and **** like that. You are going to want salty to go with all the candy. In Mountains you only have an hour or so to devour your care packages then have to throw everything away so tell your family not to send to much (there will be plenty to go around). In Florida you get to keep the packages and take them with you on the bus back to Benning so while you still don't need to ask for a **** ton of stuff (there will be a **** ton of stuff) you can ask for things that take a bit longer to eat... like a loaf of bread, jar of peanut butter and a jar of honey. I obsessed over a PB&H sammich for no less then three weeks and finally got one on care package day. Also you get to leave what you want for the recycles to eat. Don't be a dick... leave them some **** as they have to do Florida again and you are going home.

I sent a couple of bottles of hot sauce to soldiers overseas for some veteran's day "Help the Soldier's" thing at my school.

Was this a good gift y/n?
