Lt. Col. Dangerfield claims Rangers get no respect.

Wouldn't the Green Berets be a closer match to the SEALs?

Whatever, man. The green berets don't even know what color their berets are anymore.

Anyway, this is all a mute point. One highly trained soldier in the marine core is worth a dozen green berets.

When you jump off the ramp of a C-130 at night, and you are only 800 feet off the terrain, and you have a round chute, the only direction you are certain of going is down.

Also, when it is a training jump, and you are up a tall tree, you wait for people with climbing gear. Silly chances during training aren't worth taking. If it is a combat mission, then you and your squadmates will have to take care of it.

According to the regiment's website, its members make up "the Army's premier raid force" and they are "always combat ready."

Such brave snowflakes.

Article doesn't say if the soldiers were using the old airborne style chute or the skydiver wing chute ( I am not going to pretend I know the proper names), for the later would be embarrassing.  The former doesn't give hardly any control.

The question really isn't Army verses Navy when talking special forces, since the Army is used as a benchmark for how the other branches train their special forces.  The real question would be Marine verses Seal.  I heard Airforce has a special force now, but come on, they barely train their average soldier how to fight.  I had a coworker leave for the Airforce couple of years ago, saying he was going to be a ground troop.  I gave him the yeah right look, since the guy weighed a buck twenty.  He relented and confessed that he'll be involved with frontline communications, from a safe position.  I snickered and walked away.  He was one of those 'buy the real military gear to play paintball or airsoft' guys.

Rangers are just the Army version of Marine infantry.  Only they do more airborne work and less on the amphib work.  Of course every one of them acts like they're Delta Force or whatnot.  Just like how 70% of Marines walk around like they're headed for LRRP duty (or I guess now it is off to MARSOC).

I sure meet an awful lot of pasty, overweight, duck-walking guys that claim they were special forces.

It's not like I believe them, but I sometimes wish people would switch it up and be more realistic with their lies.

Except it's a "moot" point, and it's the Marine "Corps."

And that is why the Navy is happy to give rides to all the Marines when they're sent in first. They catch the bullets.

Trainees in trees... So with a round chute you can't aim. with all you see spent on the f22 debacle... Why the hell don't our airborne folks get a better chute? At least we know those work.
 
2013-02-22 03:01:56 PM
Great joke, Subby!

Now for a dose of reality...

Rangers a chosen from soldiers who have completed boot camp.  So, after a few months of boot camp, an 18-19 year old is then sent through 6 weeks (or so) of Ranger school, and is then dubbed a Ranger.

To become a SEAL, you go through boot camp, then through A school, so you know how to fix torpedoes, computers or radars.  Then, if selected, you go through BUDS, and upon completion of that training, you are considered a SEAL.

After being posted to your unit, you go through more training, and get several years worth of experience.  Then, if you are the top guy in your SEAL team, you might be good enough to apply for SEAL team 6.

Question, are NFL players competing in the pro bowl better players than college sophmores?  I would think so, and you are trying to compare the two with a little Navy hates Army bullshiat.

SEAL team 6 members are lousy at flying F-18s, subby. Does that make them "inferior"?

// CSB, I once scared the shiat out of a bunch of SEALS when I told them that if they were in a shipping lane when a big freighter came through, their Itty Bitty Ship would be crushed and they would be shark food.  The freighters aren't looking out for little people with glow sticks...And you can't karate chop a freighter...

Shostie: Wouldn't the Green Berets be a closer match to the SEALs?


Not really -- as I understand, SEALs and Rangers are both geared towards quick-strike raids, whereas the Special Forces tend to do more long-term "adviser" -type stuff -- working with local guerrilla groups to fight against a common foe.

/ex-boss was a Green Beret.
