Re: Rangers Lead The Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i guess i will share some of the things i learned in the Army so far. lesson #1
the only real weapon is the mind all other things are an extensions of someones will. The mind is able to push beyond physical limits and accomplish more than any though possible given that the person have enough will power, dedication, determination and discipline to do so. The only real limit is ones imagination. Those of you who have seen on tv any of those shows which show how commandos train as well as the indoctrination that is done to new possible members which end up passing the schools (IE. BUDS, SF Q Course, Ranger School. SAS training etc..) no thing is impossible in life you best belive in your abilities and willing to sacrifice to attain that which you seek. The Ancient Greek phrase applys "It is not the best looking or the strongest of the fastest that recieve the reath in the olympic games it is those who compete that are given them"
Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.
Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster, and fight harder than any other soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one hundred percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress, and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission, though I be the lone survivor.
