Just have him take a peek over the edge and hand 'im that leetle bitty rope to get down by...gives me the willies just thinking about it.
Here you go...from the most recent association newsletter I received yesterday, apparently a message sent to a friend from a Georgia National Guard First Sergeant serving in Iraq. His unit is attached to a regular Infantry division, and in a previous email he had referred to Rangers as "crazy" and after being asked what he meant, in this message he clarifies:
"I have not dealt with any Ranger-pure units, but just about every Infantry unit has its fair share of Rangers, including mine. When I say crazy, that generally refers to fearless. They volunteer for the most dangerous missions such as spending the night in a three-man OP in Indian Country over-watching bad guy activity. Most of the Rangers in all of the units are also generally instrumental in planning and proposing operations. They definitely believe in taking the fight to the enemy. From what I have seen, the Rangers in this theater have equipped themselves very well." (strange last statement...not sure what he means by that)
In any event, a cool commentary...Hooah!
