    Ranger?

    Advertisements
    Can anyone tell me what their SO's experienced during Ranger training? Any advice on supporting a husband trying to make the decision on whether or not to go through with it? In fact, anything anyone can tell me would be amazing...

    He has to be selected and even if he is told he could have a spot does not mean that he will actually be selected to go through with the training. My husbands roommate was picked for Ranger and he was dropped twice and taken back then dropped again and is NOT going through with the Ranger training. Was not his choice, was commands.

    When he enlisted his contract includes ranger.. is that how it was for your husbands roommate? And those links help a lot.. thank you. I'm nervous that even though his contract includes it, something might change and they won't let hI'm go.

    Even so there is NO promise he will get Ranger. They have to select him, if they say well no we don't want you then they will not take him.

    No my husband roommate earned it and was sought out. Hubs said that even though it is "in his contract" there is NO promise. All that means is he can do the 30 days selection phase. There is NO promise of actually getting Ranger. Hubs also said that his PT better be over 300 and his roommate was lucky to get 315 and they still almost didn't consider him for the selection phase.
