Hey guy. Just doing some research related to my interest in physicians in Special Ops. I have been reading about the 75th recently and was hoping that you could answer a few of my questions regarding the roles of Docs in the regiment.

1. Can they attend RASP 2 with other officers?
2. Are they technically Rangers (Beret, firearms training, etc.)?
3. How involved are they in combat? (Can they go on target, Jumps, raids, etc or do they just remain at HQ and direct the medics from there).

Best, Garry
