My butt does not hurt.... not today... sometimes it does though.

But honestly... it really chaps my *** when people are all "whatever" or "it's not like you are a real ranger". Um... I never said I was. It's like dudes have something to prove to me... or themselves... but whatever.

Oh... and there are a few of the types you hate running around here and trust me... no one hates a douchebag tabed guy more than the legit leaders who have them because they make us all look like *******s. This one SSG with both a tab and a scroll combat patch won't stop talking about "06-08" and how "back in 06-08 this" and "back in 06-08 that". We were taking IDF one night and the CWIS shot down a mortar... it was freaking cool... a bunch of tracers and a big boom in the middle of them. I mean I have seen them test fire plenty but never actually work. This ******* goes "hey all you cherry *****es that haven't ever seen that before owe me a case of beer". What a ******... and I hate the fact that that guy is associated with me based on a school we both went to. **** those guys.

Its the exception, not the rule

I'll elaborate the on tab. It's a school, plain and simple. You went, suffered and the got the tshirt. HOWEVER, being a ranger and having a tab is two different things. Being a ranger is having the scroll, period. Having a tab means/ should mean you have some good leadership experience to bring to the table.

I understand what you're saying and make no false assumptions towards the things I don't yet. But your insight helps to prepare my mind in the best way I can as a measley civilian. Though you didn't ask, I've varying my terrain, between hiking up mountains with the Ruck and up and down hilly riverine terrain. Though it's no Camp McKall, it's better than walking around a track. Understand, not trying to tell you I'm fully prepared, but I think I'm setting myself up as best as I can.

Holy ****, that's booking it. That what you mean about getting your shuffle on? That's a little pep in the step. But sound advice on the early lead. Thanks.

Also aside from rucking just go do PT in the sand a lot since any PT test or pretty much everything you do will have sand somewhere along the way

He's playing into the "I'm a measly civilian" to make it sound like he knows something

..and I don't think he knows I'm being 200% serious about the sand thing

No. I believe you. I just wasn't going to take up the whole "I know my ****" attitude. That's why I was deferring to your suggestions. And I know you're serious about the sand issue. You've only mentioned it 20 times. It obviously rings out as something important and necessary.

I told you. I read the brochure and listened to the recruiter.

If you were smart, you'd of just gone Opt. 40, spent some time in Batt, then gone to SFAS or CAG selection. Would be a lot easier, and you'd have a LOT more experience. I'm not saying you're set up for failure....but you are.

Well beings I'm already set to go the 18x route, things to help counter "almost guaranteed immediate failure" are nice. Like DMM's fondness for sand. It is horrible to train in. Probably why I haven't done it since. But now I guess it's even more so pertinent.

Invent a time machine and stop yourself from making that decision.

Contrary to popular belief, some people actually make it all the way as an 18x.

Thought I read somewhere that 18x's had a higher rate of passing SFAS then regular Army soldiers? That's why they instituted all SFAS candidates go through SOPC?

DT, it'd be too easy.

18x rays have a signifigantly higher selection rate compared to people coming from the regular army. 6 of my 18x friends just got selected. SOPC does the trick apparently.

edit- unless youre talking numbers from start of basic through SFAS. then yea.

when my brother went through SFAS they told all the guys to not try and prove themselves to the 18x rays because the x rays would smash them.
