This is it my friends, I don't have another options. My dreans are slipping away from me and I'll be damned if I don't fight for every inch.
TLDR: Private Anon is going to risk UCMJ for a miniscule chance at redemption.
Not trying to make a blog post, but I do sometimes frequent the /MEGs/ and provide what little information I know.
Ricky bless me, this is for you Senpai
I am fucking confused.
Your story is unclear to me.
You enrolled as a ranger, but didn't get qualified as one?
You wanted to be like your mentor, and went to Small Unit Tactic School.
And you flunked out for reasons that weren't made clear to you?
And you're going back somehow and your friends are covering for you? How does that fucking work?
1) You were a ranger without ranger training
2) You were flunked out a school and they didn't tell you why
3) You are getting your buddies to do your duties while you reenroll into the school without paperwork
This doesn't make any sense.
Fucking this...How do you plan on enrolling in a school with no paperwork or slot?
You think you'll be able to get out of formations and all calls?
Have fun OP. You're going to be bused back to your unit, possibly kicked out and your friends well get Articles.
He's a ranger that failed the pre-ranger school course (SURT). He's still going to attempt ranger school even though he failed pre-ranger school.
Failing SURT is not a good thing. About a quarter of rangers fail ranger school. If he failed SURT, his chances of passing ranger school are not too good.
Is SURT reccommended or a prerequisite.
Sounds like he is going to show up at Ranger school with no documents, get laughed at, sent back to unit, charged with AWOL on top of being a retard that flunked out of SURT, and get the boot garunteed now instead of being able to beg for a second chance at SURT.
They'll tell his story for years.
Isnt SURT a requirement?
SURT is needed for RASP right?
Sounds like this fucking boot thinks he can just jump in after FAILING and everybody will think he is some super motivated awesome trooper or some bullshit
no, no, thats not how any of this has ever worked
Here is what is going to happen:
>David Dipshit shows up at RASP
>it is quickly discovered he shouldnt be there
>his CO is notified
>his CO is pissed
>his CO is going to be getting shit for this idiot being an idiot
>[CO fury intensifies]
>Pvt Pencilpusher gets sent back in shame all alone
>by this time his CO has concocted enough shit to fling at his face until Peter POG gets discharged and sent back to the gutter where he belongs
>CO will for at least the next 6 months will nonstop hear about the retard who failed SURT and tried to go to ranger class
Special Ed Stevie should really just kill himself
SURT is not a prerequisite, it's an extra curricular thing the unit puts on to help us pass
Also I have orders and a Slot. That never changed. There has also been cases of certain individuals who do just walk on. It's uncommon but not unheard of in any school and happens more often then you might think.
Finally for clarification it became know to me that I failed the land nav portion of SURT by miss plotting my points, finding points in there miss plotted locations and thinking those were correct.
Do yourself, but mainly your friends, a solid and just don't show up.
>"Normally how it works, a guy will graduate from RASP 1, he'll go to his battalion, he'll train up and he might do one or two deployments ... Then, when his leadership determines he's ready to go to Ranger School, they'll send him to SURT first. The difference here is these guys have never been to a battalion."
It seems it goes RASP-SURT-Ranger School
He must have passed RASP and then failed SURT and SURT isn't a prereq for Ranger School.
His story is still weird in the sense that they scheduled him for other duty while not invalidating his slot at Ranger School.
Why the fuck would they boot you after one try at SURT, especially if you just fucked up nav?
Got back to the unit, get some on the job training, and try again.
This is a time to suck up and try to make yourself look like a guy who fucked up a little, and is not a complete fuck up.
Going straight to Ranger School sounds like a bad idea, because then you definietly look like a complete fuck up.
Do people really only get one chance at SURT? With the apparent numbers of drop outs and failure, it seems like they would give guys a second chance or they would be faced with overwhelming atttrition.
Then why did his CoC nominate him then? Unless he volunteered or was a 5 years of OJT already, it would be the CoC fault for sending an unprepped guy.
If he chain sent him and liked him, they'd make the second chance happen.
If he volunteered or has been stalling, they sent him to force him to move up or flunk out.
Sounds like the latter.
>failing ranger school
there are females that have passed ranger school op just kill yourself
Is there an actual 75th pipeline or Is it rasp>batallion>time in battallion>surt>ranger school?
I recall reading they were planning to make ranger selection
Rasp>surt>ranger school then everyone showing up as a tabbed spc4
When you go to the Ranger regiment you only need to go to RASP, then your battalion sets up your Ranger School slot after you deploy once to get your tab. Most of the time you get rolled once or twice if you fail early.
The only problem is they stopped doing that in 2010.
OP's story is bullshit.
Are they really trying to thin out the regiment this hard?
I guess there is no room for mistakes in the drawdown military, it just doesn't make sense that they would throw away a guy who just made it through rasp.
The 75th are allocated a certain number of billets at ranger school. If they don't use those billets, the number might be reduced the next year. You can orders to ranger school on your first day at your unit.
Jesus OP, this is a clusterfuck of a post.
Do not, and I mean do not, go try and go to Ranger School by yourself. Yes you still have a slot, but as soon as the SURT cadre find out you're trying to go that school- and they will find out- they're going to have the Ranger School cadre pull you immediately.
Than you're definitely going to get the boot.
Listen despite the shit talking you may have heard, they can't RFS you for failing SURT. You're also at 3-75, it's not like you're 2/75 where we have to fly guys over. There's going to be some shit talking and fucking with you, maybe you'll get moved to the training room for a bit or something, but ultimately they're not going to RFS you.
If you go through with this plan I can garuntee you it's not going to work, and you WILL get RFS'd for doing something this stupid.
Maybe, but he only thing he failed is land nav. He's getting the boot if he doesn't go to school so what does it matter. Better to risk an Article 15 in the 82nd for staying in batt than just giving up.
Because I'm lazy and drinking. They should both have a slash. So 3/75 and 2/75.
All the battalions in the 75th Ranger Regiment (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and RSTB) are Ranger battalions.
The only nickname I really know is that people like to call 2nd bat "fat bat". Also everybody wants to copy our orange diamond.
A couple months ago someone in meg, might have been tabspec4, I forget posted that Ragnar batt was the best batt. And other Batts had nicknames like angry batt and another I forget. I always wondered how they got them and why.
He's not going to get RFS'd for failing land nav in SURT. There's nothing in the blue book about it, or in regimental policy. At worst he may get placed in the training room.
Doing this has absolutely zero chance of success and a 100% of getting RFS'd.
I cannot overstate how bad of an idea this is.
How tactically proficient are the medics in batt? Reading leo jenkins book kinda makes it seem like he was an 11b but more, he even talked about racing his buddies off the bird to get first in the stack. Kinda contradicts your and rickys thing of saying they are always with the PSG and never shoild be in a stack.
Why do they get the nicknames though. How often do the other Batts see or interact with eachother. I've read on shadowspear.com that theres small differences between Batts like some go into a house with nods down while others use lights
He might be retarded and confusing platoon names for Batt names.
Also, Badmuthers fo lyfe.
And, this OP. Your plan is more fucked up than a football bat and it will get you RFS'd, guaranteed.
I know guys in the military drink and sof is np exception, but what's presumably 2 good looking studs doing drinking whole on 4chan instead of being around women
I wouldn't say that's common today. You'll still have a chance of getting into gunfights, but I wouldn't go in expecting to be a doorkicker.
No clue, to be honest I barely ever see the other battalions. The last time I worked with them was in SURT/Ranger school. 2nd always seems to be the black sheep since we're so far away, so whatever.
i still don't understand this shit, you passed RASP, you failed SURT, they're going to kick you out of the regiment, but you're still just going to show up for ranger school? and you're certain they're kicking you out?
and if i got this right, you think this is a good idea?
Based on my reading comprehension he passed rasp, went to batt, deployed with a good SL who wanted to teach him like a father son type thing that neither of them had, SL gets wounded, they get home, he goes to SURT and instead of making his SL proud he fails. Like a dog who wants to do any thing for his beloved master he is going to ranger school to make his SL proud of him and fulfill his manifest destiny.
Still swinging on some thing civie side, the hiring process for this shit is retardedly long, I feel good about it but you never know. I might re-up if things fall through but the gf and I are getting serious so as hard as my dick gets about it no fucking way am I putting us through that kind of relationship meatgrinder. If I come back I'll probably be a POG faggot again just not CA.
How's it going with you?
Good brother, just stayin busy. So wait, are you back with the missus, or this a new one?
Either way I feel ya, definitely not a profession for anyone looking for a home life. Which is why I fuck 18-21 year olds, lol.
Assuming you're as high of a rank you say, e6 or 7, and that you graduated college before enlisting, you're around 30 years old fucking 18yr olds. Seems a ltitle ....weird for someone who could get any pussy
18-21 year olds are easy - you go out, you have a good time, pick up a bitch, fuck, move on to the next one.
21 and on, it's: you go out, you have a good time, pick up a bitch, fuck, then they have some weird emotional attachment and won't leave you alone.
I'm not saying I don't do older than that, but it almost always turns out to be more trouble than it's worth.
>fucking 18yr olds. Seems a ltitle ....weird for someone who could get any pussy
There is no reason at all to fuck a woman over 21 if you don't have to.
Why the fuck would anyone choose some beat up roastie over teenage or barely-past-teenage trim?
I genuinely think you're a virgin.
Fucking someone, who you've known for 3-4 hours, for a one night stand does not mean you're going to get married.
Get out of the basement and get laid, friend.
Experience. 3 years of fucking in high school and maybe college isn't much compared to those 25yr olds. What you slayers need to do is get one of those hook up aps but looking for successful working ladies who don't have time for a man or relationship just sex
That gets me all the time. That and the hi you mist be new here memes. The 21+s aren't emotionally attached to you, their scent is just strong enough to smell your BAH and rank
Ahh yes, the experience of some used up roastie's ragged hole. No thanks.
I was at a COP with no females but at the larger FOBs there's usually something to smash. Then again, given the average military female I still wouldn't do that.
I just watched a lot of porn for 12 months.
