What is this Recon unit? I mean obviously it's a recon unit for Regiment, but how is it different from an LRS team? Does each Ranger Batt. have one?

Well you found out what RRD stands for, so why do you ask if each Batt has one when their are 4 BN's the " Regiment". It is now RRC BTW.

TYRANT please!

What I meant by saying "what is this unit" is what is the difference from the "RRC" to other reconnaissance units such as an LRS team. Sorry for being a bit obscure in my meaning.

On a side note each Rifle Battalion maintains its own organic recce element (BRD). They get all kinds of "cool" schools and are in a world of their own. Granted they are attached to the flag pole but being that there are no privates and all are tabbed, big boy rules apply.

At your age in Battalion you could fast track if you do act your mature age. Spend a couple months as a pee-on, deploy - kick in some doors and shoot fuckers in the face! go to Ranger School and when you get back try out for RRC or BRD. All that can be accomplished in a short amount of time while in Regiment.

I got a chance to speak with a guy from RRC when he was at SOCOM. He was a bad MOFO. Two combat freefall jumps

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is an open area of the board.

If that is indeed the case, this is probably not a topic for public consumption.
RRC isn't common knowledge for good reason.

Just because you saw it on open source doesn't mean it is ok for knuckleheads to discuss over open source channels. Don't be a jackass... if you want to know about these units go and do it! Otherwise go to your room and play dressup with your GI Joe.
