Keep screwing up the statistics Brother. I love it when the "smart" ones are all fucked up by what we ground pounders do! Keep up the good fight and remember you are never alone! Ranger Creed, now and forever!

This thread is what being a Battboy is all about. Jojo, you keep GRITS (Great Ranger in the Sky) away from your door and keep bringing the fight,

Happy Birthday, Bro!

Thanks all, I received a great B-Day present a clean PET scan, still keeping the cancer away. Thanks for the support. The road is long, the ruck heavy, but the company is good and hell I got nothing better to do!

JoJo,

Good to hear.

We need to arrange a link-up.

Later,

Ed

Hang tough and drive on. Here's a reposting of an oldie but a goodie that you just might appreciate.... it seems to fit.

THE ROAD MARCH
Airborne Ranger Operations Order

Weapon, ruck sack, combat load 100 lbs., field uniform. A team made up of men with individual missions but one objective, to execute the mission and survive until extraction. Each individual functioning as one. One Ranger gets emotional, others suffer. One Ranger gets arrogant, others die...

That's what Corporals are for... Corporals are more feared than long term pain.

A quitter never existed. He was simply never here to begin with. ... He strips the guy's equipment off of him and literally beats his ass down to the ground, kicking him off the trail. He then calls for volunteers to go back and pick up the equipment. We may have lost the "man" but we still have the supplies. But now the team has to hump more weight.

... The ambush itself is a piece of cake, killing is easy, the road march is the bitch.

The Road March accomplishes many things:

♦ It allows you to challenge your soul.
♦ It teaches you the importance of teamwork.
♦ It provides a mirror reflecting who you are.
♦ It exposes all good and bad in yourself.
♦ There's no way to hide on a road march.
♦ It strengthens trust in your leaders.
♦ It toughens you mentally.
♦ It beats complaining right out of you.
♦ It orients you to authority.
♦ It makes you think about others.
♦ It matures you.
♦ It makes you more objective.
♦ It provides a frame of reference for suffering.

The Road March is the crucible in which the soul is refined. Pulling a trigger is easy. Humping the load over the distance is where you find out who will be on the ambush site to pull the trigger with you.

In the Battalion, after the mission, you go out to a bar. Drinking, eating, laughing. Talking shit to your Ranger Buddies. Suddenly a cherry who made the hump steps inside the bar. Funny he doesn't look new anymore. Cuts on his face. Bruised. Walks with a limp. But the Mother Fucker made the hump.


Before we call this cherry over to proceed with the brain damage, one of the old timers leans in close and whispers, "Man that's one ruck sack humpin' son of a bitch!"

The Road March defines you. Never quit.

Come in ugly if you have to, but come in.

Ranger

Didn't want to paste the whole thing but damn it, I'm packing my ruck now!

JoJo, you're an inspiration to us all- you are obviously harder than a bag full of wood pecker lips and a heart bigger than an elephant's.

I will keep you in my prayers; I know that God listens and protects smal children and fools so I probably have a direct line...

Any way, I hope this post finds you in better health every day.

Motto of 2 Plt A 1/75- March or die! (The Purd's old platoon)
