My oldest Son joined the U.S. Army in Aug of 2005. He completed Basic/Infantry and Airborne (got to pin my wings on him) without a problem. Completed The Ranger Indoctrination Programe early 2006 and was asigned to the 2/75th Ranger Battalion.
FINALLY he has finished Ranger School, and earned his Tab. He had to repeat the Darby phase twice and the Mountain Phase 5 times!!!!! Then it only took him one try to complete the Jungle Phase.
It took him nearly 8 months to finish a 2 1/2 month course. He never quit, never gave up and now he has earned his Ranger Tab, WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!
The only downside due to manditory training at work I can't get away and go to his graduation
