Default Re: Rangers Lead The Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thank heavens weekends we are off my legs are shot i can bearly walk or move for that matter. Monday back training is going to be hell. Unit going to ShugartGordan Urban Combat training area which is simulated to look something like gritty somalia. The 82nd Abn Div. is supposed to be there as well hopefully i will get to meet Major Mike Steel havent seen him since I left 82nd to go to Ranger school. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends, this phrase comes almost immediarly into mind thinking about What 1SFD-D operators Shugart and Gordan did willingly to save the members in Mike Durant's Chopper. ON the lighter note I get to fast rope in HOOAH.

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.
