Ranger School

I work with a guy says he was the CBRN NCO in 2/75 and went to RS. Very well could have.

Problem is, his words don't ring true and I got a bad feeling about this.

How do I check?

Thanks

ST

Start by posting his name...and what he is saying that doesn't feel right?

Sinclair, Hugo Z.

I don't doubt he was the CRBN NCO at 2/75. We were just TDY at JBLM and he knew the area, etc.

As he talks about RS my gut says he didn't attend (infamous blue berry pancakes, Mount Yona, etc).

I hope I'm wrong.

So you are looking for a tab check, then?

How old is he and when would he have gone through?

Yes, he says he went through in 94. Can't get a class number from him.

Click on 1994...and either see if you can find him, or have him identify himself...

I graduated 39 years and 9 days ago and I can remember that I was in 7-79.

The term 'lifelong impact' can NOT be understated...

You're still sharp as a tack considering your age.

Not taking Top's side in the issue...but I was a cherry PFC when you were already a dimple-chinned, hardass SSGT...therefore, you are older than dirt and two years younger than God (counted in military years, of course).

How is Glenn? Please tell him, his wife, and (hopefully) your multiple grandchildren 'hello' for me!

Just browsing some old photos.

Interesting to see in the late 1970s they had ROTC only classes?
