Army First Unit Of Assignment Uncmc

Well first rule of thumb is to remove exact ship dates because currently, you're violating all aspects of OPSEC!


Secondly and most importantly, slow down Highspeed. LOL Take it one day at a time and complete your initial training first. No one here can tell you when you will be completely done with training because first of all just because you got all of those options in your contract, doesn't mean anything unless you complete the training in schedule. Times and training dates change ALL the time for any number of reasons.


Regardless what you've read or what you "think" you know about Ranger training, you don't know. You go in there thinking you know what to expect and they will field strip down you regardless of how much of a "physical specimen" you were told you were. Some of the first guys to wash out are those that supposedly look the part and were told they would make it.


I work with and spend alot time with the Rangers, SF, "Contractors" and guys with "no names" here in Afghanistan at my FOB on a daily basis and some of the most Highspeed operators don't even look like they could make it through basic let alone Ranger and surely not SF training.


Good luck!
