Because the support guys think they're entitled to act like team guys, which pisses off all the Sergeant Majors', who impose all the Regular Army shit on us because they're also getting tired of the post CSM calling them saying "you SF guys are dirt bags" when it's the support guys acting like dirt bags.
Dude this is right on the money right here. As a support guy (Non-SF type) I remember on deployments I would see guys with the long hair, ball caps, oakley on the head and hands in the pocket walking around like they are too cool for school. You can tell an Operator from a Non- Operator but some of the Big Army guys can't. Anyways, the way they would carry themselves in public brought alot of attention to the SOF community in their AOR. Now we don't have the freedoms we use to because of guys like this going into the Big Army area trying to show off. That's why when I deploy, I do my best to stay on the compound and never leave because I dont want to put up with the stupidy outside of our hescos. It is so easy for those of us in the SOF community to paint a picture for Big Army guys. We can either show them that we are professional by doing what is right or we can show our asses and walk around in their AO with our hands in our pockets, pant legs unbloused or no weapon because we can get away with this stuff in our area. Guys need to learn that once you walk outside the walls of your compound you now fall under the rules of the guys in charge of that FOB/Camp. I know its a pain in the ass sometimes to do the right thing but think about it, you can either make your organization look like professionals or ass clowns. I take alot of pride in serving in the Ranger Regiment and I will do whatever it takes to make us look like we are the best at what we do. If your a support guy and you get to be in RGS that is great and good for you. Don't abuse it. Your in RGS for a reason. When it's time to transition to AR 670-1 do it. Take pictures of youself with long hair and a beard if you need to remember what you look like. Being in RGS in the SOF community doesn't mean shit but in the eyes of the conventional it does. You should feel fortunate that you are in a command that allows you to do this stuff.
Here's a word of advice for you Kaltherz. When you address a user that had Ranger under his name, you need to put Ranger in front of his name. This is a requirment for this site. I'm actually surprised that no one else has told you this. Where's uncle Stead at? He would of tore you a new one.
I will now retire back to my supply room to inventory how many boxes of grid squares and PRC-E8s I have on hand.
Good Day gentlemen
