Many years ago, I was a SSG with a Vietnamese Ranger Battalion. I spent 17 months in the unit -- we went to Cambodia. I went through OCS and after Jump refresher, started Ranger School. Did the mountains twice, pinched a nerve. When I graduate, the Mountain camp commander, LTC Moose Yon said "jim, which is wrrse-Viet-Nam or Ranger School?" My answer was"Ranger school, if you fuck up in Viet-Nam, you die--if you fuck up in Ranger School, they make you do it again."
