    Hmm that would be cool. I wonder how much air assault type training we'll get at group. Prob depends on the ODA's mission statement. You go through Rappel Master? What does it involve besides rappeling obviously :)

    oh yeah def. go for a ranger contract bro. its called an 11X with OPTION 40 (option 40 is airborne and RIP) great contract and it will challenge you and make you a better man for sure
     
  19. Sounds so amazing and something I need in my life. I am definitely 6-12 months away from enlisting, as I have alot of things I have to do and get done before I get in, but I am absolutely committed right now to preparing myself in everyway possible and getting myself into much better psychical shape than I am right now.

    How old were you when you enlisted? I'll be 19 in October (Halloween in fact). So, I'll most likely be close to 20 years old when I enlist.

    I enlisted when I was 18 and turned 19 a month or so before I left for Basic. I considered the RIP contract but couldn't get one so i got a 18x Special Forces contract and have been doing that. Definetly the right choice for me.

    yeah 18x is a good choice too, but ranger and sf are complete opposites just about, so research both before you make a choice, both are great choices to do something bad ass for your country
     
  23. No doubt. Will do sir. :run:
