Tyler,

Some how I guess you posted in the wrong Introduction Forum... If I were you, I'd read the rules really, really quick and re-post in the proper place.

My brother was a NRA Life member. He died last February (2007) and I still receive 3-5 mailings addressed to him each month. All of them request $$ & None of them have phone #s.

I've written to try to get them to stop the mailings and now I'm on their mailing list!

Hi, Then all the Rangers here that have RS class in their signature line but have no Ranger Bn listed are really Ranger "Qualified" and not actual Rangers and to be an Airborne Ranger and not just Ranger Qualified you have to serve in Ranger Bn. Guess that is why even though a soldier graduates Ran...

I passed all of the airbourne physical except for the part about joint tenderness/restricted mobility.

I've used both in combat and I wouldn't choose either again.
