They grunted and used clubs for hand to hand ~just kidding~ Actually, Nam Rangers had the ONLY proper graduation final patrol....You come back, you earned it. The video has me thinking back and laughing my ass off. Picture this: night ops, fast rope onto a 2 story building, your stick lead, back then if you held the rope your a puss, along with being the padding for everyone that follows, you hit, roll, weapon up and ready, you scan back because u hear a hard hit and sound of pain (yes, so what, I violated a principle of patrolling looking outside my sector...sue me!), see your buddy hit the roof, roll, then over the side of the building he goes...he was jacked up for just a few but full recovery....so now...it's reflected back as being one funny ass memory!!!! H- if your out there, no offense...but dude that was funny as all hell!!!How did the 75th look like back then? Werent they more focused on recon/LRRP type operations?
I found..and not just because of age....PRE Regiment was the ONLY place to be! Read something about using Capital letters...Hope this isn't a violation of Terms....if so...... ummmm oopsI should have gone to Regiment. Think that some of those guys are 19 years old and doing stuff that most people can't even imagine doing. If I could do it all over again, that is where I would have gone.
