Hello, my name is Jacob and i'm a Senior in high school. I play on a club Rugby team as the scrumhalf. Ever since i was a little kid, I've always wanted to become a Ranger. Little did I know what they did besides jump out of planes with a rifle and fight the enemy. These past four years I've been doing lots of research about becoming an Army Ranger and have been extremely interested in becoming a Ranger Medic.

I decided to join this site because i wanted to gain more knowledge about becoming a Ranger Medic and what a Ranger Medic will do in the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Thank you for letting me become a member on this site. Thank you very much for all past and present members of the military.

Welcome to SS. Very nice introduction, like the Rugby interest. I wish you the best of luck with your plans for the military. Do you have plans to further your education after high school?

Thank you for the replies.


Red Flag 1,

As of now, i am planning on becoming a EMT-Paramedic first and getting some medical experience. Although it isn't as trauma related as a 68W would be, it is a start. The school that has the EMT courses also has a Rugby team that I plan on joining.

So, may I ask. Do you want to be a Ranger Medic or a civilian Paramedic? I think both are REALLY awesome callings, not just a job but a calling. If you go to civilian medic school, you may want to stay in that profession for a while. Ranger medic, if I am not mistaken, get trained to the Paramedic level (it's all in the threads here)..... What am I saying? I don't know. I am senile but you really have to be ready for both and for gods sake, concentrate on the 25mm target.:thumbsup:

Firemedic,

Ranger Medic is my number one goal currently but becoming a civilian Paramedic would also be cool. If i was going to become a Paramedic first i'd do it for the first hand trauma experience. I'll do some reading and heeding before I make a final decision.
