I am Treetop from Houston Texas.
I served starting in"78 in "A" Co, 2nd Battalion , 143rd Inf of the 36th Division.
We were the Airborne Guard unit that became "G" company Rangers later on.
I loved jumping, but was not motivated enough to go for a Ranger tab!
I Was honored to serve with many who did...
I have a question about a man claiming Ranger status,
and that is what brought me here, but that will wait for another day.
I'd really like to hear an explanation of how "A" Co, 2nd Battalion , 143rd Inf of the 36th Division became "G" Company Rangers "later on".
I joined in Co "A" in 1978 to be airborne and was for a few years.
The company was re designated as "G" and the Ranger mission was added.
"G" was disbanded in 2005...
Now Texas has an Airborne unit again, and the lineage continues.
ARMY LOGIC is the only explanation that I have!
