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.

Applications are being accepted for duty with a unit that provides tactical and special reconnaissance support to the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Limited officer vacancies include one infantry major position, two infantry captain positions and one position for a chief warrant officer 2 holding MOS 350F (all-source intelligence technician).
Assessment courses are conducted twice each year, usually in March and September.
Once selected for the company, members attend a rigorous 29-week operator training course that includes free-fall training, computers, advanced communications, digital photography, photo editing, reconnaissance reporting formats, fieldcraft and stalks, infiltration and exfiltration methods, close-air support, advanced driving techniques, demolitions, tactical man-tracking and advanced medical techniques.
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.
