Dropping in to send out a SITREP.
Finished up language back around May, scored well with a 1+, thanks to my professor. Pushed on into Small Unit Tactics (SUT) Phase but ended up getting recycled due to ... BRM. Still a little upset on that, I sat in between training for a couple of months before I got another "shot" at SUT. This time I killed it, 39/40. At SUT I learned a lot about: Patrolling, OPORDs, WARNOs, sucking, raids, ambushes, sucking, being a SL, getting smoked, imagining weird shit under NVGs, hallucinating. I peered very well, and got a GO my patrol as a SL. Selection has its moments of suckyness but SUT is definitely a bigger hump. I had already planned to volunteer for Ranger School after the course and SUT only solidified that decision. I had a lot of ground to cover at SUT, I was very thankful that there were some very squared away NCOs/Capts to learn from. I was happy to shut my mouth and listen to their words of experience. Next course was SERE-C... best and worst school I have ever been done. Enough said! Looking forward to MOS next.
