This thread is useless without links to strip clubs.

And you call this a Ranger Links Thread?

Puh-leeze.

Admins, if this works out can you memo it so that all can refer to it easy?

Thanks
Here's another idea (which I'll also be posting on the Facebook Ranger page)...

Several years ago, a former Ranger got depressed and ate his pistol. Some guys on the Yahoo rangerlist group asked for volunteers to be available for Rangers who might be having problems but not wanting to go through the DoD/VA Suicide Hotline (for obvious reasons). General Greb was maintaining the list, but he's had some serious health problems and I dropped out of the rangerlist a couple of years ago and don't know what the status of the list is anymore. So...

We've all read about the "rising incidence" of suicides in young soldiers (and recruiters) possibly related to their service downrange. I haven't heard of any Rangers/SF/SEALs/Marine Recon or EOD commiting suicide since the early '80s, but we all get depressed at times, and sometimes we just can't connect with the civilians and straightlegs who run the hotlines (particularly when we have clearances to worry about). I recently met a former Detachment D trooper and we dump on each other on an as needed basis...

Here's my suggestion: that we set up a list for past and current operators who need someone to talk to, particularly late at night when you can't sleep and the bad memories start to crowd in.

I'm retired and have strange sleep habits, and am willing to maintain the list as well as being a contact.

Security of information? Well, this is a fairly decent site and I have a Mac, so let's see what y'all think...

Jim,

I've correpsonded with you a bit over he past few days and personally, I am damn glad to have you here. Not enough of you VN Era hardchargers left on this board. What you're suggesting is admirable and I'm not surprised you suggested it knowing what I know about you. I'd expect nothing less.

That being said, you and everyone else already has that support system right here on SOCNET.

SOCNET is not like any other internet board you'll ever frequent. We're not about chest thumping or acting elitist, or shoving a political view down your throat. We're simply about current and ex-SOF (and service members like yoursef) having a place to go and communicate with like minded folks, male and female, MIL and LEO...and even interested (respectful) civilians.

If someone on here is a verified BTDT, they are 'one of us'. You sadly don't make that cut simply 'because of the rules', but Sir, you're not far off. I still consider you 'one of us'.

Regardless, if you or anyone else from the old Ranger List Server, the Ranger Yahoo Group, Facebook page or any other Ranger (or other Branch SOF) 'online rally point' ever needs to talk...all they have to do is come here and ask. They can post, PM or email one of us. There's a damn good chance that we have a long standing and vetted member just a stones throw away from wherever they are, anywhere on the planet. The arm of SOCNET is long and can lift a deuce and half from half a world away when we put our mind to it.

We've done things on this board for each other that you cant even imagine (and frankly may never find out about). But you can believe me when I say we take care of our own in ways that people who aren't 'one of us' just wouldn't be able comprehend.

- Michael

Thanks, "cousin" Michael. And I do understand about us Rangers taking care of our own. About 5 or 6 years ago, I couldn't find a job, was running out of money (and had a cat to feed!). I got onto Yahoo! RangerList and asked my buddies for help while I was waiting for my VA disability to be upgraded...

And they helped me out. And when I tried to repay them, they just said, "Ranger Jim, no sweatty da, you'll get your chance. And until then, just pay it forward."

And I've invited my facebook Ranger buds to join us here.
