Description and Details:
Follow me on my five year journey to becoming a Ranger. Rangers are some of the most highly trained, intelligent, and deadly fighters in the US Army; and Ranger School is where they are made. The US Army Ranger School runs for 62 days and currently has three phases: Benning/Darby; the Mountains; and the Florida/Swamp phase. And it is one of the toughest schools in the world. Rangers go for weeks with little sleep or food and undergo grueling training under the harsh tutelage of the Ranger Instructors (RIs). Few even try this course, while still fewer actually graduate. This memoir will take the reader through my arduous five year journey to becoming a Ranger. Beginning with me joining the Army in 1990, through my basic and advanced infantry training, to my time as an infantryman with the 101st Airborne, the 506th Infantry in Korea, and the 10th Mountain Division, you will learn about not just my experiences but also get an inside look at the prevailing culture and training of the US Army circa the early 1990s. More importantly, through the story of my transition from civilian to a lean mean fighting machine, and ultimately to leader of men, you will gain valuable insight into what it takes to become a leader. Join me in reliving the highs and lows of my journey to the Black and Gold culminating with my ultimate triumph!
I hope that this story of self-discovery will entertain and inspire anyone who wants to lead their best life, whether in the military or civilian world.
