No joke. There is one curious twist on this one, however. SOP when I did my second tour in G Co was that the only guys who ever got loaded into ATRRS for LRSLC were one of two categories:
(1) Those already holding Combat Arms MOSs. In this case, prior completion of Ranger School was expected. The general attitude was this: "You're eligible to go to Ranger School. WTF do you not want to do this first?"

(2) Other MOSs (preferably Commo). In the pre-2002 period, those who hadn't picked up a Combat Arms MOS and so couldn't go to Ranger School, but -- provided they were assigned to a unit with the appropriate mission -- could go to LRSLC (I was one of those at the time). We weren't eligible for Ranger School (Combat Arms PMOS only, mind you, at the time!), no matter how high-speed the troop may have been otherwise. When G Co was getting axed, that's one of several reasons why I thought it so important to forget LRSLC Phase II for the moment and transition to PMOS 11B instead. Even if it happened in "Leg-Land" a couple of years later, that choice was definitely worth it in exchange for the privilege of having led an Infantry squad into actual combat.

During the mid-1980s, we had a "course" of instruction like that in my old unit: from late 1984 onwards it was called "S&T" (for "Selection and Training"), however no diploma was awarded, no "fear-me" badge was handed out, and no SQI/ASI was given. If a unit newbie completed what was expected of him, he stayed. If not, he didn't.

I miss that guy. He is a national treasure.
sorry to hijack, quick CSM Purdy story. M16/M203 and PRC77 get stolen from Phase I "City Week" RS 15-89. 2nd Lt was on guard when it happened. Ouch. We were "sequestered" after city week was finished and given an envelope, a piece of paper, and a brand new #2 (every hour on the hour for 8 hours) and were told to fill out the paper and put it in the envelope with as much info as we knew. The 2nd Lt wrote that we were being treated like Jews in the concentration camps. Well spit fucking fire CSM Purdy knew exactly who wrote that comment and the Lt was in tears shortly afterwards. We were all secretly applauding the assrip even as we were trembling in our boots.

Urbano needs to meet Bubba in the Big House. Hopefully Bubba has a Veteran Warrior brother.

Was Urbano ever disbarred on these claims? He lives about 15 minutes from my house.

Small quibble. In this case the DOI is for the English Proficient tag on the bottom of the Airman Limits list. This went into effect in 2008 to comply with ICAO guidance.

This guy is my attorney, he does legal clinics for the DAV at the Phoenix VA. He told me he was 82D and 160 SOAR, that is one of the reasons I retained him.

Website is still live, and he still claims "Special Ops Ranger and Pathfinder for the U.S. Army" on the front page. See also the tiny image at the bottom right corner of the front page. Wearing a maroon beret, and maybe a reserve chute? Too hard for me to tell.

I have placed a complaint with the AZ Bar, they do not seem very interested in pursuing this claim. I have submitted all of the material from here. He is still practicing from his home.
