    My friend is currently in Iraq in the Army. His tour in Iraq is over in June and his contract with the army is supposed to be up shortly after like around September I believe. The thing is now he is telling me that he is going to stay in and become a Ranger. I don't really understand it because he is always telling me how he hates being in Iraq and he wishes he never joined. He always talked about becoming a Ranger though so I guess he is willing to stay if he can do that. Right now he's in a position where he drives trucks and doesn't see much action at all. Is it weird that he can supposedly get into the Rangers with what he's doing now? And If he does become a Ranger is his job going to get a lot more dangerous?

    I was being serious with my answer. No it's not weird for him with his MOS and no it will not be more dangerous for him.

    How so? He never sees any combat right now because all he does is drive trucks. If he becomes a Ranger, which is supposed to be an elite group, wouldn't they use him for more serious/dangerous stuff instead of having him drive trucks and whatnot?

    He would most likely be delegated to handle supply type shit.

    I talked to him today and he said when he becomes a Ranger he's switching jobs to become infantry. He regrets the decision but he already signed the papers or whatever so there's no way of getting out of it now right?
