You're how competent you were nutley standards discipline talking about medicine a handle yourself in the clinic All that is going to be impressions that are related from one group of nco's to another and as that guy transitions to accompany Whether or not he goes straight to a platoon or he hangs out kind of a floater position. That that all depend on manning So once they show up there they're in it and there with a platoon and you're going to go straight into help with coverage is whether or not that's shoot housework whether or not they're doing platoon or company live fires do jump coverages. You're you're drinking. Do the fire hose in your learning how that platoon is operating. You're integrating with the platoon sergeant. All the squad leaders. You're in a very unique position where you're generally on the rank scale more towards the lower end but are expected to be able to engage with almost the full spectrum from the day one private. All where to the sergeant who's been there years and years and years so so they're in a very unique position so some of the stuff That can dictate is like we've talked about throughout this whole thing. The ability to be personable people and interact Guys are generally. I would say you need to be pretty pretty buttoned up. You need to be made. Sure you're gonna pray dress for every. Nco you talk to you until you can build enough reporter with somebody to where you can be a bit more relaxed. They are going to treat you like a private until you prove yourself worthy of a little a little relaxed lifestyle so that you can give give somebody enough enough rope to essentially get themselves in trouble Private life for me was not mary a lot of people yelling at me and told me to do things but as soon as i showed that i was competent. Able to handle tasks you know they. They gave me a bit more slack. You know maybe do. Pt bill self. Or something like that. You're highlighting things. That i think the average person probably doesn't know inside the compound.

"The battalion. What's the day in the life of just a platoon medic Looking somebody expect the arrive and maybe even special specialist bowers can be more newer to this thing. You know you arrive in the door and your your brand new. What can i expect. Yeah it depends on where you're assign currently onto hec. But i have had the opportunity to work with alpha company at battalion on a few of their training missions. So yeah it kind of depends on the professionalism that hugh display while you're there if leaders respect respect you straight up. The gate is gonna come is going to have a large part as to what you're going to be willing to say worked or allowed to say in how much you can train the guys i had opportunity on on my second Training mission to do an abbreviated or of our course. With some of the newer rangers that just came to alpha company So that was a very good experience for someone who's not assigned to a platoon yet in order to get some experience training some of the younger or some of the newest rangers in impotent. Currently over it they're -talian right now over at The rangers special troops italian by just moved over from three seven five so before you can hit an year. The line platoons or online company so.

"Stuff then. Yeah she's very unorthodox. For at least again as i remember you had to be four or five before going. So we're sending the lie. Battalion sang guys to ranger school as quickly as they can. They determine they have a strong enough pt score. They create kind of an order. Meritless based on whatever guys need to go I will say there are some degree. The amount of time you've been there will kind of pushed us more of the top but at the same time. Pt's pt and if you have guys who are doing well at there are always going to be preferred. Because that's a really good predictor of their success at ranger school but also to the preschool program like we were saying about the ranger school piece. Currently we're not doing the cs. You program like we used to the we've developed a khan academy course that's very similar to what guys did at asu day can do a generally at their own pace. They do it online. We have a couple. Nco's you manage them day to day. There's a large focus on clinical medicine. We integrate them back into the rams programs. See kinda behind the scenes. The rast we'll do some coverages with them. They'll get hands on. Exposure treating casualties and affleck's casualties sometimes will pair them out. Joe coverages as well. Nick primarily work as drivers they still get to see bore of day to day arranger operations and how range dramatic functions once their post sock them so they do a lot of integration with us and while they're out on the ranges we try to teach them how to be successful and sock them how to be successful as they've come a medic after stockham leadership stuff really that time out on the range is when the medics to a lot of mentoring with the saints. It's mostly one pre sock them with another matic. It's really on an individual level instead of sitting in a classroom with a group. So i think there's a lot of value out of having a pre sox's come and really see day-today life once you're in regime curious fan based on that. Are you seeing that. The success rate tends to go up a little bit more because of that or or it's still about the same equal. So what i will say is when.

"That's a great point because we actually touched on that. The last time we were here is don't sell diesel. Let you know go down that path. See if you're really cut out for why was it that the you've got an option forty in the first place. There must have been something that kind of drove you to go down that path end. So if you don't at least try. I don't know i just i didn't understand that either. You definitely think that if you don't try you're always going to sell yourself a little short and if you go and you succeed like like my situation can end up being like one of the best decisions you ever made accidentally so yeah go. Try and see how it goes. You guys have all had the opportunity to work with various different services and people within your career type field. We met a young man at one time frame. That was talking to about what he was actually talking to. One of my co host who. Who's an eighteen. He was a csm ten special forces group not too long before that nieces. Listen i'm looking at really thinking heavily on special forces in so mike said why. Why do you think you wanna go special forces you know i mean. Everybody thinks they want to do something. But it's good to really understand you have the passion and the heart and what's dry behind it and the guy says because i really feel like i want to serve at the best and i want to go in the medical field and all this 'cause like then pump the brakes just a second because you know is as an sf guy you're not going to get necessarily the the type of experience that you probably would. Let's say in you know ranger regiment is a medic there or even an air force as a pj or you know so you got to think about that. You got to think about what you're so purpose drive of why you wanted to go be a green beret. And i think it's an important conversation because you guys have a chance to work with those types of guys and has seen that across the comedian. Each of us have a role within the army. But you guys play a specific role. Maybe you can kind of talk about that. Yeah so. I think there is a a little bit of misconception out there Particularly about the you know the differences between.

"A Colonel General Nixon was the commander of the 75th Ranger Regiment. He joined me on the U. Q. It's show now, General, I'm a civilian, even though I got Navy family all around me, so I know that civilians often make mistakes when they talk about military nomine clay, cheering categorization. It has always been my understanding that well, every member of the 75th Ranger Regiment, which you commanded is a Ranger or nearly every member. Not every ranger has served in the Ranger Regiment and my right or wrong is a prelude to discussing Senator Cotton. It is confusing, but you're absolutely correct. And so I think it's a mistake that civilians make that they do that. Can you explain the difference? Between the Ranger Regiment and other Rangers. Primary differences. It's Ranger school and the Ranger Regiment. So I went in. It's a schools. It's the best leadership school. In the army and upon graduation from that school, you are considered an Army Ranger. Least I consider myself an army ranger, the 75th Ranger Regiment and the Cream Italians associated with it or a unit that is comprised of only people that a Ranger qualified so that that's the confusion, particularly as it relates to this discussion, I think is Frankly, a little bit ridiculous. Did you think the attack on Senator Cotton was in any way justified and he's often said I'm a Ranger. I served with 101st in Iraq and I served with the old guard. He's never ever said he served in the Ranger regiment to me, or anywhere else that I can see. You think he is being unfairly maligned? Yeah, I think I think has been taken completely out of context. I I don't know Senator Cotton. I mean, I've looked at a lot of his statements into your point. To my knowledge he's never talked, claimed to have been in the Ranger Regiment or one of the Ranger battalions. He's always clearly state is in 101st of the old guard. And he's a graduate of Ranger school, so I think And this is not the first time it's come up has come up a number of times and frankly, one of the reasons that I agreed to come on and do the show is I just think this argument it distracts from the things that we ought to be focused on. It was coincidental that I am reading a book by a fellow named Michael Walters, a congressman and I'm reading his book Where your diplomat and coincidentally I'm reading about one of his Heated battles in Afghanistan. I mean, very heated. People are getting killed and shot and he writes The Ranger creed that we recited. Every day in that hellish school was burned into my head. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy. He's a green beret did not serve with the Ranger Regiment, but it clearly has an impact on every ranger who goes through the school. That's correct, and that's what it was designed for. I think you know if you really want to understand that there's one Ranger Hall of Fame and that Ranger Hall of Fame is comprised of two different groups of people. People that served in the Ranger Regiment and the battalions and people that are Ranger qualified. So clearly, the Rangers who created the Ranger Hall of Fame believe they're both inside that umbrella. Do. Members of the regiment generally resent The Ranger qualified as describing themselves as Ranger. If you're a tosser club drinking beer, you're going to have arguments over my in. It's better than your unit. If you haven't done as much as I've done that Z. Clearly, that's a discussion. It's not a political discussion and is not it and we shouldn't be using it to disparage people's character because I just think it's wrong. General, Would you talk to me a little bit about what happens in Ranger school? Tom does not elucidate it, and I've read about it in the waltz book as well. But what is it? What is it that they do? That makes people a different kind of soldier than they were when they began the school. The focus on Ranger school is leadership in combat, and what they try and do is a friend replicate combat. In the in the only way you can in peace time, and that's to provide stress, and they provide stress through lack of food. Lack of sleep hard exercise peer interaction, So it is an extremely stressful of that that you're evaluated from the time he began to the time. Time you finish. It is probably the closest replication you're going to have to leading in combat, And that's the crucible that you go through, and that's why it's such an important school. Leadership school for all of the Army, not just for the people going on the Ranger regiment. Now, the distinction between special forces is often also mixed up. All special forces serve often under the Special Forces Command, but they each have their unique Eat those and creeds, But they're all special forces, right? Yeah. Yeah, they're all special operations forces. And then that gets a little bit confused with special forces because again, that's a school, the special forces branch. Of the Army is different than the seals different than the Special operations aviators of the Rangers. So, yes, they're all part of the umbrella Special operations forces throughout the presidential campaign. Joe Biden, acute Donald Trump of doing little to combat the pandemic. At his inauguration, President Biden assured if he had a plan to turn things around, But now that he is at the helm, he is singing a different tune here..

"We all live by that. That's our that's our pride and joy. Basically that's what that's the morals. That's everything we WANNA do And then it says we're going to set the example for others to follow. I think the biggest thing is those individuals we work with. Were training those individual. So even when you're a leader when your squad or platoon sergeant your training individuals below you to actually take your job No one's against each other like you want those individuals to come up. You want those individuals to keep going. You want to see him progress and you want to see him succeed. So I think that's the biggest thing like we're talking Individuals here have been together for six years eight years so I know everyone says it but it truly is a family here. We have a lot of younger rangers. Things like that too so everyone within the platoon. Even when we're not at work works over one of the tunes hanging out to go so the weekends we're altogether at barbecues like going out hanging out of to the bar. Whatever we're doing everyone stays together so you have that bond and I think that's what makes us Italian. That's what the commodity comes from and then that's where we're able to hold each other accountable so once we do go out to conventional forces We're leaving that same motto still set the example for others follow and we'd get out there and it's a little different because individuals do come. They're there for two years three years. Then they're going on to the next assignment so we get there and we've seen what it looks like We know how individuals can work together when they do get on board. Everyone's on the same page. We're trying to accomplish the same goal so once we're out there just makes it a lot easier. I think that's where leadership comes into effect. We're trying to get that same like we're trying to get the same results from the regimen. It brings individuals where it's kind of accomplishing and kind of makes that makes that the mentality of wherever you're at you know. I think that applies to everyday living no matter where you are with your out in the private sector. You're in a conventional army. What you just said I mean the whole idea of being an NCO Definitely is about to make those people below year. Subordinates that much better to replace you. It's it's the lift them up not to lift yourself up. It's not about you trying to get more trinkets and you know more awards and stuff like that. It really is supposed to be `bout that so You know definitely if you're in a unit and the Conventional Army you're not finding that within your unit. You can certainly wait to the next PCS or you can put in to to come to regiment. It sounds like If you're really looking for that because that's what you you experience here on a daily basis. Yeah exactly so we get the schools like we get schools and we're going to the schools. That's what happens with our leadership so when you are a private that's when you're going to all your schools when you're a sergeant that's when you're getting some of your cooler schools Your squad leader. That's when you're pushing down your privates you want them to get those same opportunities. You want them to come up and training also. So that's where you're kinda start separating yourself to worst not your training like to make yourself better on your training to actually progress your career. That's where you kind of made that switch and you're trying to bring the guys up underneath you and then everyone's kind of progressing together. One of the things that we get a lot is what is arranger. And of course you know there's ranger school and there's Ranger Regiment. And so the question is are they won in the same Sodas Ranger Regiment run ranger school because the whole idea is to become a ranger and it just seems like that's the right progression but that's not the case right one belongs to trade. Ach One belongs to a so-called Special Operations Command so there is a difference between the training and the real life situation on a daily basis. But everyone of you guys also has to go have to go as once you become a leader identified as a leader to go to ranger school so differences between Ranger School and the Ranger Regiment. primarily Ranger School is a school is run by the army. It's based on combat leadership and learning how to lead patrols and other people when they're extremely tired extremely hungry physically uncomfortable all that. It's extremely worthwhile school. Nobody in the range original ever tell you that that ranger school is a waste of time. you gotTa Ranger School. You'RE GONNA learn a ton about combat leadership and a ton about yourself probably more by yourself then you learn about Combat leadership but that being said it is. It's a school anybody can go to ranger school. And you branch of Service Ranger School will host. You know soldiers from foreign militaries Anybody is eligible to its end ranger school. The Ranger Regiment is a Special Operations Unit We share the word ranger in our names. But that's about where the similarities Begin and end is just in that single word Part of service in the Ranger Regiment. On this this may be part of what confuses people sometimes to become an NCO or to be an officer in the Ranger Regiment. You will go to and you will graduate from Ranger school if you don't graduate from Ranger school as a combat arms or less You're you're eligible for release for standards from the organization We send everybody ranger school. Because it's a super good way of It's a good benchmark for leadership potential so just like Rasp Is Competitive and based on assessing and selecting the correct people to join the Ranger Regiment ranger. School is it's a good vehicle for determining who we should retain within the Ranger Regiment because of the potential that getting a ranger tab demonstrates so if you go to ranger school and you graduate and there's another soldier that goes to school and does not graduate. We can with like a fair amount of objectivity say that the the soldier who earned a ranger tab At some point in their career has the potential where it has a higher potential to be a good leader And that's the sort of soldier that sort of Rangers were trying to retain within the organization which is why every single ranger goes to ranger school. Yeah and that's I'm glad you stated that because also I think it goes back to our earlier conversation about. Don't de-select yourself so if you've gone through ranger school you can also still apply for Ranger Regiment. It's no different but the fact that you have ranger. School is not an automatic qualifier. Yeah absolutely so having Your Ranger Tab macy ranger qualified and being the derangement makes you a ranger. Bright simple as that should dispel that we had a very long probably an hour and a half conversation about this subject trying to explain it to personnel from the navy and the air force because they were trying to say what is the ranger. Well there's a ranger and there's a ranger in okay so yeah Ranger Ranger and it got to a whole like to our conversation. I think it went to one o'clock in the morning. And then we were finally like we're just GONNA end this picked up the next day. Unfortunately but this is a heated conversation about what is arranger. And and how do you get into regiment? And I know that you guys on social media win like us when you ended up posting something like that and you see a soldier who has a ranger tab but they don't have the scroll they're not in Red Ranger Regiment. You know they go with that person's not really arranger this and then there's a whole debate goes on about one hundred and fifty comments on post by appreciate every single one of you guys coming on certain. Bishop kept young certain Tagami and start Anderson. Thank you each for coming on the show and sharing your experiences and what you guys have done. I think it'll be only educational but I think a lot of people are just really curious about Ranger Regiment which you guys do on a daily basis What it takes to become one and then not only that but why would I even WanNa join and then when it comes to the time when I leave there? What are the benefits of why he served in if I make the transition? How easy is it going to of what the lessons I've learned here to the private sector? I think we covered every single one of those things. I appreciate. You guys taking the time to join US thanks much..

"Program and actually try out for the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment There's no guarantee guarantee you're going to be wearing a Tom Brady. It's not like you're GONNA go through. Get that option. Forty Mardi there guys gotta make it the gotTa make it the airborne you've gotta make there's no guarantee once he gets airborne school or Osa any basic training really because we take all option. Forty is this all day? Molested series But those individuals. They're still going to have to pass the course Whatever that basic training curriculum is. They're gonNA have to pass that. Once they pass that then they'll go ahead move onto a it or if it's eleven series. They're going to be no set. They're going to pass that and then from there that's when they're actually gonNA come to us and then they'll have to pass our standards and then once you do. Pass the rest standards. You'll go to airborne school and we still require you to pass those. If you don't pass that then it's still going to be option forty contract but most individuals they're going to pass Airborne Schools Fund school. Go go there live for three weeks. They're gonNA come to their gaining battalion. Go and then that option forty contractors that guarantee which battalion. You're going to go to or does that depend on something else. So option forty contract. The only guarantee that that gives you is the opportunity to attend RASP Beyond that that's that's the only guaranteed option for you Which battalion you end up at Typically is going to be based on the needs of the regiment so based on your Mos Which Battalion needs another ranger of your mos most most That's where you're going to end up There's obviously like we're human beings here to you so there's extenuating circumstances that can affect out one way or the other on a on a case by case basis but generally speaking when you graduate rasp then graduate. Everyone school you're going to go to the battalion that needs you with your specific skill. Set the most. So let's back up to a little bit because it's not just infantry they can get into regiment right and so there's a ton of different MOS's so people are listening to this. They automatically assume that a person that's in you know becomes a Ranger and works in Ranger Regiment is assigned to arrange arrangement is eleven series. That's incorrect completely incorrect. So there's over one hundred ways to be arranger. I think we're up to sixty seven. Mos is on the enlisted side With some of our newest editions being the cyberwarfare soldiers seventeen series and then for officers and warrant officers. Don't WanNa forget warrant officers. We've got about an additional thirty to forty and we have some very a niche like Functionaries of officers that serve on the regimental staff so there there's an abundance of ways to serve as a US Army ranger in your respective MOS. I think I like what you said. Initially you said something about let s de-select you don't start de selecting yourself so again if you come into an mos and you think doesn't match well okay then submit and find out you know. Let let the regiment say no. We don't need you I think that's that's a good way of putting it so once you get in and you're in Osa you mentioned earlier that you're GonNa meet you because you're gonNA come in to The hosts it. And you're GONNA lay out a presentation about how to be arranger what it takes to be a ranger. Yeah absolutely so as the as the fort. Benning Liaison I work on my office is on Sandhill in infantry basic training. Land over there so There's about forty basic training on Sandhill and every time a company is in cycle About Midway through a little bit after midway through their training cycle on his ait. I'll go over and conduct a brief and kind of lay out what it means to be in the Ranger Regiment. What we do what it takes to get to the Ranger Regiment. And at that point Anybody that wants to volunteer to attend RASP has the opportunity to volunteer. There's some some hard fast qualifications to join the Ranger Regiment. That I go over but once I have screened all those applicants anybody that volunteers goes to rasp after they graduate. Oh Sit In in almost every way volunteering for rasp in sit is functionally identical to coming in with an option forty contract. There's zero difference in pipeline No difference in pay commitment to the arm terms of length of service or bonuses. Everything's the same so just because you couldn't get an option forty with your recruiter. Because they do sell out right. There's a there's a given number of option forties available each fiscal year. They're spread out geographically across the country. So if recruiter is telling you that hey I don't have an option forty to offer you right now. They're probably not lying to you. They're probably telling you the truth because for your given. Mos that you're trying to enlist as they might just be out. There might not be any more contracts available for that year But if you qualify. Otherwise based on. Gt Scorer citizenship eligibility for security clearance. And that you're active duty you go to basic training and ait we have so there's liaisons just like me at Fort Lachica Fort Jackson Fort Lee and Fort Gordon so if you go to Afc at any of those locations You're going to get a recruiting brief just like I do at the Infantry Osa companies opportunity volunteer there and like I said functionally identical. They're coming up with an option forty contract. You're you're targeting. It sounds like the locations of where the MOS pipeline Are Going to lead into regiment. So you guys are located at those specific locations where you can get those resource. Yes correct sewer we have liaisons at all of installations where there's you know. Ait advanced individual training for the majority of molasses that we hire in the Ranger Regiment will I think just based on manpower we can't support every single AIT location and have have rangers everywhere But the the biggest installations that produced the most Soldiers in that. Mos is that we're trying to to acquire and we have liaisons there. Anybody also had an installation that we don't have liaisons whether it's Fort Sam. Houston if you're sixty eight series or Fort Leonard Wood You can always reach US via social media. A recruiting email address Reach that way and we can help you get through the process as well. Yeah that's that's one of the good things we do. We also have a l no fort seal Who's handling that location? But those locations like science guy who was saying. So you're Fort Sam Houston and Fort Leonard Wood. We're actually there last week. Doing recruiting trips for those individuals given an opportunity to go ahead and volunteer statement. And we're trying to hit those locations where we're GONNA be out there at least once every four to six weeks so that way every individual who is going through a ait. We'll see us at least once and then they'll have the opportunity to volunteer. That's great you guys. A ticket on a road show so we traveled costly And then sure we'll get into later also with the in service groups but we're going to all the installations this kind of giving them the brief let them know what we do Just kind of spread spread the knowledge. Everyone know how to get into the regimen. Make Dizzy as possible. So if you are in service and you WANNA come to the regimen. What does that look like so for anybody? That's in service on the wants to volunteer for the Ranger Regiment. What we require is basically from your dod source email we want your most updated s Rv your soldier record brief in PDF format. And we go over a screen and make sure you're qualified Then we'll send you out a rasp one or two packet depending on your rank so once you complete your rasp one or two packet. You send it back to that. Email the some five recruit at so..

"This episode. We're GONNA do something a little unique. We are invited into Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment. And we've got some really cool guys sitting at the table and pause joining me on this episode and I guess and I think it'd be really nice for us to dive into some of the things that we get in terms of questions I know you guys do in terms of social media and Such where people have the opportunity to reach out to you about what is it like. How do I get in all those types of things so I want to start first? Maybe with you guys introducing yourself. Good Morning I'm captain young on the Regimental Recruiting Detachment. No I see and I manage a twelve man team that is stationed around the United States. I've got a few of those members here with me today. Basically I'm the manager of a twelve person unit within the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment composed of active duty Rangers who recruit and serve as the conduit between volunteers off off. What we know. Is the street as well as inservice volunteers who all want to come to the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment? So I've got a couple of them here with me today and they're going to introduce themselves. Explain our mission and exactly what it is. We DO STAR. First Class Bishop on the recruiting NCO SC Work alongside with captain. Young is generally for us Work with my recruiting Illinois. Is We have them stationed at six locations throughout the world and what we do. Is We go all the it locations? We're talking to those individuals interested kind of letting them see the process in order to come to the same Fifth Ranger Regiment. And then we're also recruiting those inservice individuals. So that's going to be Steph. Aren't anything's GonNa talk a little bit later. And he's kind of helping with that process okay. I'm just curious for the both of you guys. If you guys can give it a little bit of your background as to how it is that you even arrived here. I know that there are many different avenues. that we're going to talk about for people getting into the regiment. What was the row Kinda? Give me an idea for the both of you guys. Okay yeah so I came in as a eleven bravo or eleven x Ray. I came with option forty contract and what I did was I went to. My recruiter told him wanting to be ranger? Show Me Love and Bravo's eleven next series. It was like that's what I WANNA do. Do you really have a good idea of what the Rangers were? But I knew they cool guys. I wanted to do that. So when had signed up for that? And then from that process I'm GonNA end to Osa. Went to the rip at that time so the ranger indoctrination program which is now the ranger. Assessment Selection Program Back then it was a four week process. Kind of went through that graduated went to My Ghanaian Battalion. Okay and you ended up at Third. Bat is over at third bed. I was there sobbing in eleven and a half years now spent majority of my time there before I came over to over to RSD as Aaron Co and then now working as a recurring attachment. What I find so fascinating about that. Is that lease back in the day. And I think it's still pretty true. That two years is about. The average are three years for guys being in regiment. And one of the battalions or and so when I meet people that have been ten. Eleven fifteen years blows my mind. Yes kinda Kinda the perk of being here in the regiment to where we get that stability and we kind of settle down in one location and you get grow with the same guys Just Work Year Round. So yeah yeah very cool and you you sort of have a similar story. Right Start Tagami. You're launching introduce yourself yummy. I am the four banning liaison for the recruiting attachment My principal duties as the banning liaison or to go to each infantry one station unit training company and conduct briefs and then cast screen All those soldiers in that company figure out who wants to go to the Ranger Regiment provide them a volunteer statement And give them the opportunity to volunteer to attend RASP. I also do the same process with every airborne. School Company So Infantry Oh sit and airborne school company every Class I conduct briefs take volunteers and get them assignments to its end. Ask them the opportunity to join the Ranger Regiment So like sorry Bishop I I joined the Ranger Regiment with an option forty contract The I kind of had the benefit of having a close childhood friend. He spent four or five years in First Ranger Battalion. So before I was even in the Army I had a pretty good idea of what the arrangement was about. And what made them different than the rest of the military so coming tonight? A good what I was getting into account the challenges is GONNA face Along with that relative who's also in the ranger admit So I went to basic airborne rasp with assigned a Third Ranger Battalion Kind of similar aren't Bishop. I haven't been in quite as long but in about nine years but I spent almost eight years in the same platoon This is the first job I've had in the army Outside of the scene that is assigned to and I I graduated from Rasp so it's pretty equal opportunity. Yeah that's again. That's pretty rare that you get to do that. It's funny because now you're doing you're the first ranger I met you know your counterpart again like fifteen sixteen years ago now and I was in school and I went with the ranger. Mine to a writ brief rasp breeding. I didn't want to go. I had orders to Italy and I thought that's going to be real cool but my buddy couldn't go without his battle buddy so I'm sailing chair and so he's just like you showed some Videos that people on dirt bikes and people jumping out of airplanes and stuff like that and I never made it to Italy. I just ran down the street to rip and DOC so change in lives man. Yeah I mean it's a it's a cool opportunity it's I think the real goal of of the job like from a broad spectrum standpoint is not trying to force kids. Devante here but you know somebody who's in airborne school and they're gonNa go to. What seems like a really cool installation which probably is going to Vicenza with the one. Seventy third super co opportunity but A lot of them. Just don't know that there's another opportunity right down the road or RASP that it'll be very different and probably a little bit more difficult but Equally cool probably cooler depending on who you ask so just trying to like. Get the word out that It's even available to them. Yeah no I think. That's absolutely crucial. Because I was looking back I remember. I didn't even know what a ranger was. I just knew they were cool guys and they have special hat and they kicked a bunch ass. And you know I didn't know how to get there. I didn't know if it was an option to me if I had to go to my gaining unit I or whatever so before we get to certain Anderson. I want to go back to captain. Young because captain is being an officer how was it that you came into the pipeline yourself so unlike these two fine regency owes it took me about seven and a half years to get to the Ranger Regiment? So back in two thousand eleven. I graduated in commission from Indiana University. I was in. Rotc Grad Reserve Officer Training Corps Grad I went to infantry basic officer leader course ranger school as a platoon leader in one hundred and I and a company commander in the eighty second and finally applied and very grateful to to gain acceptances organization. So I if you're an officer you can apply a number of different windows within your career from from zero years to twenty years in service and essentially get hired. Now you were a first lieutenant when you came in or were you already a captain. At that time I was a second lieutenant when I commend you. Okay yes and I reached the the regiment as a captain. Okay See that's new to me as well. I always thought that first lieutenants were typically the the way in not not beyond that correct so You can apply as a First Lieutenant. Typically after about a year with your first unit or duty station reason we do that as Allow some maturity experience on the job as a I attended as well as an officer evaluation report once we receive that there's a number of different documents and requirements That coalesce to form a full application and then we determine if that particular candidate is a good fit for the regiment will onboard them through Rask's to which stands for Ranger Assessment and selection program too. It's a three week program for e six to eight and Oh twos to threes and even fours. Which is I threw majors. I'm glad you mentioned that because those individuals who are on active duty right now that may be looking either officer and enlisted and they be thinking. Okay I'm too far removed to be able to get into regiment. You know that was something I wanted to do when I was a young guy. Now I'm an east six. I can't do that you know. Yeah the answer is yeah. You can't absolutely not and they should not De-select themselves allow us to do that and allow us to train you and determine if you're going to be a good fit. Yeah I knew I remember back in the day. The pipeline for a lot of first lieutenant even coming in was If you were a second lieutenant the best way to do it was to go over to Korea that timeframe and get your First Lieutenant in the regiment really at that time frame and Tracy may remember really liked I lieutenants coming in with Korean experience because you are on the DMZ. You know you you have the option to to really see more of what it would be like and you know so. It's really cool now. That here all of this because I think it's much different or I just wasn't you know aware of that information so I appreciate you sharing. That started Anderson. Not Forget you step arson. I've worked here at Fort Benning. I'm an in service recruiter. I basically answer most if not all emails that come into us. I've been in Ranger Regiment. My entire career which I went Option forty eleven axe back in two thousand eight and Went Oh set airborne than rip than Came to first battalion and I was there until two thousand seventeen and came up here to be recruited. So when you year recruiter you're not seventy nine. You'RE NOT A or you're not you didn't go to use direct and get the badge and all that then no. I'm still eleven bravo right now. Okay see people might hear that and they go. Gosh Sam Start Anderson. He's a recruiter. I just wanted to clarify one of the good guys. But let's rewind now that we're talking about that and go back to you know use a wreck so a lot of people are not again really sure if this is something that they want to do if they are they go down to the recruiter and they say hey. Listen I've heard about this thing called option forty or they may say it'd be a regiment Being Regiment and I was. I was on the recruiting side. I was on the bad guy side. So you know we knew that when you went down to maps that it was going to be the guidance counselor after you made it to the adds value made it to the physical. You're going to sit down with the guidance counselor and you're going to get the options laid out as what in. West is Uber Qualified. For you know based on your green color blindness and hearing and everything else that went into your physical And if the individual didn't know to ask for option forty there may not because they they may be looking at specific. Mos The needs of the army at that time for him. That's going to be the first pitch they're going to lay on them and then the second pitch is going to be. Maybe what you want So what I tell people is that. Listen if you don't see the option available and that's something you're dead set on then go back. You don't have to enlist that very first time and this is not something you guys got to answer just putting that out there for the people who are listening who may be interested. Go Back Down to the maps you know. Second time third time when the option forty may not be available. Or we're going to talk about other routes still may lead to that same path that they may not be familiar with. So let's say you get option. Forty any come in. What does that really guaranteeing individual coming in with an option forty contract so you option forty contracts guarantee you the chance to actually come to rest so anyone who doesn't have that they're Gonna. They're GONNA go through. They have an option for contract will go airborne school then go to their unit within the army That option forty. That's guaranteeing you the chance to come to the Ranger Assessment Selection.

"Monumental effort. That's happening in Columbus, Ohio. And before we get into all of that, the national Veterans Memorial and museum. Can we talk a little bit about your career for a few minutes looney? Yeah. Let's do that. Yeah. So give us kind of the rundown because if I don't I don't know we only have an hour long program, and I can't run down all the awards. Well, you know, if there's ever an award credit goes to the young soldiers and officers that often carry all of us under shoulders, and we get the credit. So there are a lot of people that that carried me on their shoulders over the years. Graduated graduated from Senator Dole in Charleston, South Carolina in nineteen seventy nine. In which commissioned. That's an infantry Lieutenant and. So over the course of my career, I served in every type of infantry unit winter for Riley Kansas near you with the big red one mechanized one, right? And then and then I went up to Alaska, and I was parachute. Infantry Arctic paratroopers with north of the Arctic circle. Sharing that the goodness. And the hardship. Paratroopers at forty below zero for a number of years and then down to the ranger battalions part of our special operation forces where I commanded. I probably company second ranger battalion. And then moved after a couple of years. To ninety three division which was a motorized and recognize the precursor to watch strikers are today. And then which college here at Fort Leavenworth Kansas returned to the ranger regiment at Fort Benning, where once again, which would just the most amazing, bright energetic, and and patriotic soldiers. During that time, deployed to Mogadishu Somalia. We've all seen Black Hawk Down the second force forward. I like to always say so we arrived on the fourth of October joined our colleagues over there. But Nevertheless, I was there, and then and then I was selected to command Parachute Battalion at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The second battalion five oh four. And then selected to command the second another ranger battalion. Another battalion third ranger battalion the same one that went to Mogadishu and then crossed over into the training command where we had all the officers and airborne school captains. And she does of infantry. And I know she s for my dad officer candidate school where you can be a private someday. And then an officer very proud of that part of our military service, then give everyone a chance to be the best. They can. And then through no fault of my own was selected to general officer. You know, we just found that if you keep taking care of people they'll take care of business and today, I find that as success again. Western to parachute division, eighty second airborne division, deployed for a little while to Iraq. And then over the next couple of years, deployed about three years to Iraq. And then became the three star general in Iraq. For all the fighting and training and helped shut down from ninety nine basis to ten basis. And and then also. Then ran all the army bases around the world, purist installation management. Command many general essentially seventy five cities we ran.

"Because of the fact that there may not be a straight answer this going to be in a textbook. I mean, it starts with you know, the fact like you've mentioned, the could you call it an individual the winter ranger school and Liz this ranger standard. If you don't put it out there. You don't try to use the fact that you have a tab in call yourself, a ranger the fact that you still went to the school signifies something I mean, like we're all talking about here. It's that is that way. Like, you mentioned Don somebody's looking on that left sleeve to see the schools that you've gone through. Okay. You know, you've gone through ranger school. You may have gone through us and Q and been through special forces. You've achieved certain things, you know, you may have been you know, you got your jump wings. You've gotta see I be whatever the case may be. There's that whole thing that everybody focuses in on to measure. For the individual. And certainly ranger school's always been one of those. But then I also look at those guys at never make it to ranger school and spend their time in the military in a ranger regiment as an infantryman, but in any role for that matter and regiment, but certainly, you know, as an infantryman and spent six month deployments or less over in combat. Multiple deployments in that same period to say that that individuals not arranger would not be fair either because they live the ranger standard and the ranger creed every day. Yeah. And again that comes down to you know, the individual you have ranger qualified. It's like, you're airborne qualified or your Pathfinder qualified if you you can have the badge if you're not doing a job, you know, again, you got to have a refreshing when you go back through there. And those things are kind of been, you know, it was a tab wear and a tab bear, you know. And then we tunes aren't that? Was like, hey, you know, here's the three criteria. To be to be arranger. You know, this is his opinion. But he was like you got to go to the school. You got get you have to get your ranger tab. Then you need you need to be in regiment. You know, those are two things you have Tabare Tabare. Those are the guys, you know, they do it day in and day out. That's not the say that the guy that came from the eighty second on the twenty fifth. You know, doesn't go to the course, and then comes back, and you know, doesn't day in day out do his job. But at his particular time that he's serving you know, he is in the twenty fifth idea. He is in the eighty second airborne, you know, he's airborne ranger qualified. But again, it goes back to what you do every single day. And you know, people that you're around that also takes us back to the very beginning in this conversation about how it's meant to be that type, of course, that you can go back in to bring that knowledge of that course, back into your individual units and add only as a leader, but sharing some of the knowledge that came out of that course, with their individual unit, your Petuna, whatever the case may be that your commanding that timeframe just like people in regiment, the whole idea is that you don't spend fifteen twenty years in regiment that you actually are supposed to go back to the conventional army and spent some time there, and we both know Paul some guys who have done that. But there that's supposed to be the pipeline. The pipeline is supposed to be taken individuals from the Commissioner army synonym into ranger regiment. Taking guy some ranger regiments Senate amac of the conventional army and that that breeds that. Kind of understanding of what being arranger is all about. Yeah. That's all from Abrahams. Charter, you know, we're not supposed to hoard knowledge. And then just have the best fighting team in the world. You know, it's not not like we have a fighting Super Bowl that we're all going to you know, so. Spread the knowledge sharing the wealth. Like, that's that's crucial to to the whole system. The whole ranger system. And I don't know what kind of leader you would be or what kind of I mean can be ranger a leader. Right. So. People sharing knowledge mentor, someone that didn't have the same opportunity as you. I guess. I mean..

"Now there are females that are in special operations units. Some of which are not really, you know, talked about and such but the long wear and tear of the human body in these types of situations. His probably not been really documented well enough to know, whether or not females can last in that type of environment because there is I mean, it takes wear and tear even on the male body in the types of equipment and everything else terrains independent to go through. So to your point. It's not that every woman going into the military and every woman going into inventory, every person is wanting to go become a ranger just like this. It's the same. Ratios. It is for men. There's not very many men that wanna go that same route. And yet the same small percentages are going to be those that actually end up going into regimen as well and carrying on a ranger. But I think it's important to that. Maybe we need to talk a little bit about what is arranger because there's a whole lot of conversation about called himself ranger, then after the Rangers go, okay. Well, you know, you went to ranger school, but don't ever call yourself a ranger because you're not wearing the tan beret and part of regiment yet. I believe there's actually a hall of fame four Rangers that doesn't discriminate by individuals that only spent time for those that are only and regiment, they actually make it open to anybody that carried the ranger standard and went out there, and and became the best ranger that you can be in your military career. I mean, I would say that. I don't say I'm arranger. I do not. Ranger gone to render school, but I definitely don't say because it's just such a difference because I'm a chemical officer. Okay. I'm a chemical officer. I don't spend time in ranger regiment. Whereas these men and women literally live in greed what they do. It's just like going to you know, selection. You know, if it was different where? Yeah, you go through the Q course. But then hey, I'm q- course qualified by. I'm not in. You know, I'm not a green beret or something like that, you know, but you have to be hand selected to be in that type of organization vizier best of the best in the military. You know, like, yeah. Ranger school less than one percent of the military. You know, men and women have ranger tab. However, you know, if you want I think to continue to excel with that with that tab, you just go to the next level, which is ranger ranger regiment. Yeah. I mean, that's my opinion on it. I'm sure Paul probably feels the same way. Yeah. Very very very similar feelings on that. You know, it's it's sixty day. Course, you know, it's sort of like getting your degree like you have your degree. But you work in a different field. You know, you're obviously qualified to do one thing. But that doesn't make you that thing. So. So are there different degrees? Then because at what about the guys who spent all we have to E four that never went to ranger school. But they were at regimen. Why were they were they in regiment? Were they when it was hard. Because if they were there when it was hard. Well, what would you call heart when they were the black breath or they got the Tam brace. I don't know, man. You know, I think this is one of those conversations that a lot of people don't want to talk about..

And of course, we have our continued supporter largest donor and that Stephanie Lincoln fire team, whiskey, and we appreciate all of our patrons and the two new ones. And and those it's been with us for a period of time because his through your donations that were able to help carry on this podcast. So appreciate that. So now what get onto this week's episode. So first off welcome to the matrix military podcasts on this episode. We're going to get into a pretty interesting topic around women and ranger school and women and Rangers in general, and this has been a topic. That's been shared by several different discussions, either on podcast offline and Ginny Metzler is a Lieutenant in the army and graduated ranger school back in April two thousand eighteen she was the twelfth female actually to graduate. The course at that time frame on the podcast as well. As Don FOX tan is a member of our cadre of hosts, he's a retired major was enlisted as an infantryman up to e seven before attending CS and commissioning infantry as well he attended Rangers score early in his enlisted career and became a ranger instructor with four as a senior NCO, and then returned to fourth are as a as an officer. And then Paul Martinez who's retired CEO who spent. Seven years in third bat, seventy fifth ranger regiment, and many years of that as a sniper he is the author of the bestselling book when the killer main comes, and then, of course, myself Robert count is a retired US army Master Sergeant who started off in armor, then spent time to recruiting retention, and basically I wanna jump into this. You guys all have backgrounds as a ranger in some capacity, and I think what's really cool about this as you all come from different walks of life. So if you got you know, some of that just attend attended ranger school somebody that's been a ranger and ranger bat. And then you've got somebody. There's a ranger instructor. Don, I know you, and I have had multiple conversations, you know, over the years, especially but here recently around ranger school and some of the comments especially that were made around the females that attended ranger school. So I don't know if you want to kind of talk a little bit about your back history. And when you of course, we're in our I when they were primarily males. And maybe that's a good starting point. Obviously, you're early in your. Career. You know, if you want to advance up and move through and also challenge yourself, there's not a better school than ranger in the ranger course itself. It's a primary tool is a small unit leader. So you're that's that's probably the best leadership school you can attend in a just happens to make it around a recon ambush, and some, you know, physical activities on the way to test your into. Tesla fortitude and also test your leadership abilities. So as you go there early in the career, I really didn't know anything other than that..

"I attribute my success and selection to might time in the ranger regiment specifically when at the time attendant colonel his name he was a j commander mcchrystal mcchrystal yes i can't believe sorry retired general mcchrystal for forgetting your name kipah joan but he was a huge influence in the ranger battalion at the time and specifically for myself and i was in in the ranger regiment and 'cause he instituted a battalion wide policies that each ranger rifle squad had to road march a minimum i think it was like twelve or fourteen miles a week so and then so as a squad leader your i said battalion commander says we're gonna walk twelve miles southbound fifteen next week you know how it is of course the standard so because of that you know we were just hard hard rangers back then and and it made me mentally tough physically strong just like the rangers are today i'm curious about you know from someone who has a inside perspective on mcchrystal 'cause from what you read in from interviews he's done like he is such a strict and and really just out there regimen when it comes to sleeping eating training it's just like the amount of hours he sleeps tonight i think he said something like four or five hours right it's like it's really outright yeah i was i was super fortunate to to have i think the closer relationship with at the time to tend to colonel mcchrystal and then later of needs to chase up commander when he was a battalion commander i was the seventy seventy fifth ranger regiment and seal the year so i think because of that he knew of being the most squad leaders in the ranger italian aren't known by the battalion commander would i think that's what helped him remember me and i can remember being deployed in iraq and linking up within he wanted to talk with me and he's citgo buddha my hooch lb there in about fifteen twenty minutes i have this meaning and he just wanted to talk about some stuff overseas in iraq and so i go to hooch and looks like mine and here he is the jason commander if you sleeping on a makeshift cut very minimal support he's got a little lamb and some books next to his bed nothing fancy i was like wow this is a man of character he's living just like that it's like i am which is somewhat unheard of you know in the military ranks and he's three star general that time i was like okay this guy is the same person that i do in the ranger regiment and he was telling commander because we loved everybody loved him and even as day stop commander buddy left them i guess that's just a great mind stay hungry mentality of that you're you're gonna keep living that way and not you know get to pampered to you know to break out of your old ways in old habits yeah i think that he's always been that way and i think part of him was just take if he's asking his to do something he wants to do it just like them or to the best of his ability and it really hit home when i when i was talking to him and we were just sitting there by his bunk and nothing special i was like wow this guy and his questions to me were inciteful and and he was just trying to get my perspective which meant a lot to me at the time i'm just lonely i think i was in the seven or eight at the time but he's still remembered me because he was i was one of the soldiers and he was telling commander in second battalion truly what a great man i have nothing negative in all positive things to say about general mcchrystal rob what then took you on your path to the unit yet you start it you know you're a ranger you're quite accomplished.
