    Never mess with a Ranger...

    A battalion of marines was on a beach doing a PT workout when the CO of the battalion looked up and saw a lone army ranger standing at attention at the top of a hill.
    The CO was curious so he sent a marine up to see what was going on.
    As the marine approached the ranger sprinted into the woods, and the marine followed.
    Yelling and screaming could be heard coming from the woods, seconds later the Ranger stepped out and stood back at attention.
    The CO was still curious so he sent a squad up to investigate.
    The ranger ran into the woods and after some yelling and screaming, came back out and stood at attention again.
    Now the CO was angry so he sent an entire Platoon up to the top of the hill.
    The ranger ran into the woods.
    He emerged moments later after sime more yelling and screaming with no sign of the marines anywhere.
    The CO had had enough, he sent the entire battalion of marines charging up the hill.
    The ranger ran into the woods. More yelling and screaming and this time some gunfire.
    Finally a terribly wounded marine crawled out of the woods and reported back to the CO.
    The CO inquired "Do you mean to tell me that one army ranger destroyed an entire battalion of marines"
    The marine replied "no sir, it was a trick, there were two of them"

    I like the one where the B52 flies in and blows up the hill, the forest, the battalion of Marines and the two rangers.

    Can an officer become a ranger?

    Or is just for enlisted men who have proven themselves and been selected?

    Both. My brother-in-law is a Major and is also Ranger-qualified.

    Did he start as major?

    I guess what I'm trying to say is can someone who enters the Army as an officer become a ranger? :hs:

    I'm not sure what you're trying to ask... but he started as a Lt, and progressed up in rank the normal way. I think he went through Ranger school when he first joined, and I could be wrong but I seem to remember him saying something about a lot of officers going through Ranger school even if they didn't need it for their job. :dunno:

    All Infantry Officers are automatically given a slot for Ranger School after completing thier officer training and infantry officer training. they have the option to turn it down but most dont. thats why a lot of infantry officers have a Ranger Tab.

    and yes there are officers in the Ranger Bats, they have to go thru ROP instead of RIP. ROP is a lot harder than RIP.
