That's one school (SERE) I absolutely had no interest in going to. I figured I needed no practice taking an ass whooping. I would just suck it up if the time came.

Kinda like practicing for a road march.

When I left Key West, I went to SERE Level C instead of HALO Jumpmaster...... I know, right? But I am actually glad I did.

Being a Ranger is about doing what your told under any circumstance. I never had a lack of guidance while in the Ranger Bn. The school is not dissimilar. Ranger, go here and get me a rock, no dumb fuck not that rock... for 58 days. I lost 54 lbs in 58 days in Ranger school. I graduated the Q course and went to Pre-Scuba and Scuba School in the first month. I may have had some trouble doing that after Ranger School. I had to do a lot more thinking in the Q course, especially during Robin Sage. Finesse is not a Ranger Word.

I say what Ranger Scool was to learning your about physical capabilities and limitations is, SERE is for your mental... there’s some less than fun moments, but I was better for it.

Yet you spent your entire career practicing for "that" road march.
