Im considering making the transition. Does anyone know the exact process? I have about a year left on my contract and was wondering how to go about it. Ive heard that I would go straight to jump school and then RIP. Can anyone confirm this? Also, ive heard how the regular Army works about keeping rank when you make the transition, but how does it work with the Rangers? Theres rumors floating around that if you get out as an E-3 in the Corps, you can pick up E-4 right away and then E-5 about a year after that in the Army.
