Received a message form a lady who's son was booted from RIP on his 1st day (yesterday), along with approx. 75 others!!!...I believe they only started with about 100...
EXCERT: from the conversation the lady had with her son...
one of his friends was shot down because he was "too heavy" 180 pounds another because of somethin' else and him he was in the middle of doin' something...some sort of endurance...and he said "my legs started to feel like rubber and i lowered them a little and moved them right back up just so i could feel 'em again the sergeant came over and said "who you with" and i said 11B and he said "infantry?" and i said yes and he said we don't want any more of you infantrymen you're outta here"
GONNA BE A SMALL GRADUATING CLASS...
Getting booted and quitting are two entirely different animals. From my understanding after hearing from the Cadre, no one was booted yesterday.....they all quit. I guess I wouldn't expect a kid to tell his mom that he quit, though.
My RIP Class started with about 25 students, a far cry from todays standards,(we recieved a lot of personal attention from our instructors).
About 3 quit the night before IT started, first day another 5 quit, and by the end of 3 weeks our class graduated about ten.
I feel the right amount of Studs per class is about 12, how else could the Instructors give them so much of thier sweet time.
At the end of the day RIP is just a teaser, the real fun begins soon after, if they can't pass RIP then.........Fuck Em
