We recieved our battalion assignments today and I'm staying at 3/75.

You have orders yet? Forward them to one of the staff and we'll get you switched over.

edit: after you get your orders, forward them to cback. This whole "SOF mentor" thing was his idea, and I think he should have the privilege of vetting you for Verified SOF status.

I started train up prior to my return to the Army. My first APFT after my return, I scored a 251. One and a half months later I scored a 261. I continue to improve. My ruck march times are slow honestly as the furthest I have done in since my return has been a 16 miler. I was able to consistently move at a four and a quarter mile pace. Now currently trying to get into theater I am still exercising but my ruck marching has halted. I plan to utilize the different elevation here as a training helper. I will continue to update my progress as able.

On this day February 8th 2013 I donned the tan beret on my head, the scroll on my shoulder, and became an official member of the the 75th Ranger Regiment. I set out on this path a long time ago and this journey is over. But all that means is a new one is beginning it is now my job to become a competent, deployable member of my element and get into the fight. But for now I'll take some time to enjoy this. I would like to thank all of you for the support and to my mentors for helping me when I needed it but also putting a foot in my virtual ass when I stepped on my crank.

I have a picture of my graduation certificate along with the beret and scroll I could send you from my AKO if that will suffice. If not I'll wait until my official orders come in I only propose that because we were told inprocessing will take a week at minimum.

Good job brother, don't get cocky now though. You just proved that you have what it takes to show up, staying is a whole 'nother thing. Over half of who you just shared a stage with will not be wearing that tan beret a year from now. Keep your head in the game, and don't party too hard. If you keep the motivation up, the coming years will be the best and worst of your life. It's an experience I would not trade for anything. Welcome to a storied brotherhood, and remember that you have to re-earn that scroll every single day!

On a separate note...sorry about your orders to tird err I mean third batt......haha 1/75 RLTW!

The focus I'm bringing when I show up as a cherry is nothing compared to what I had in RASP I know I'll need that and then some to hold on to what I was awarded today.

As far my orders to 3/75...I guess I just performed well enough to go to God's battalion. 8-)

I'm green now. :D last SITREP in this thread I think its time to let the other guys in here report in. The words of advice I can give is simple DON'T FUCKING QUIT. Every selection has a worldwide and I can assure you no matter how much pain you're in that worldwide relief is never worth it. I say this because you will walk past buddies of yours still in the course that see it through to the end just about everyday. It doesn't matter if the end goal is a scroll, tab, both, trident, or anything else quitting what you started is never worth it. If you sign the dotted line to do it, then fucking do it. It's harder than you think but not so hard that you can't do it.
