|This is just my personal view. I will start by saying that I am no expert on the military having never served. If I speak out of place feel free to correct me. I originally came to this board to find information on my deceased father (KZ) who was in fact an Army Ranger and a SF affiliate. It would be great to contact anyone who had served with him. I do enjoy reading the posts here. I find it interesting that so many young people are here with aspirations of becoming elite soldiers. I wonder if they really know what it is they are looking into doing. I hear a lot of people talking about going to college and working on their MBA before becoming Rangers. I don't know if they realize what this is all about. My father was a Ranger until the day he died, you couldn't take it out of him. When he volunteered for RIP his primary driver was rage. After RIP his primary driver was adrenaline, suicide and destroying anything in his path. He lived for the rush and looked forward to dying for it. College was not a huge priority for him, killing was. If you are currently in college working towards a degree I think that you are doing a great thing, stay with it, be happy. If you decide you still want to be elite be ready to have your view on the world changed, be ready to give them your soul. People in these positions are professional, dedicated and their first priority is not earning a badge to show their friends on the weekends. If todays Rangers are anything like my father they will not be impressed by college credentials. This is not the movies. These people are serious.
