My lieutenant just got recycled. He didn't even make it through the first day - collapsed in the last half mile of the 5 miler from Heat Injury
thats pretty weak. luckily im goin through in a decent time of year
How fast were they running?
He was pushing a 6:30 mile in 100 & 100 heat
That's what I thought. I had heard they run fast as shit on day one like that.
good luck now you will finally be "accepted"
i want a tab
since there's no guarantee i'd go to a Ranger BN....
I have no motivation ever to go to Ranger school, unless it's "highly encouraged" by my CDR.
why would you not want to go? it would seperate you from your peers and give you a really good shot at getting to e6 faster then anyone else. with that attitude no one will ever send you.
hes an O
exactly...If I were to pursue and earn the tab...i would want to lead those who have earned the tab. Odds of that happening are slim to none...so many tabbers running amok that have never seen time in a Ranger BN, it's ridiculous.
this made me
Marines are not authorized to wear their ranger tabs on the uniform, oh wells.
or pathfinder badges.
why would you want to?
It makes absolutely no sense.
people ask me what I am proud about during my time in the Marine Corps and the first thing that always pops into my mind is that I never got the Silver Bullet
makes sense to me...if I earned the tab, I would want a guarantee of going to a Ranger BN.
I wasn't disagreeing with you - I agree completely.
ahhh, i get it now.
maybe if u get ur tab u'll become a better leader by being able to pass on ur tabbyness skillz to the non tabbers that u lead? u can always kick ass at ranger skool and they will maybe offer u a chance to go to a ranger BN. happed to my lt. friend but he turned it down.
whyd he turn it down?
he has a wife with their first born on the way.
