You know what we used to call air assault?  Dope on a rope.

/My youngest brother was airborne.
//Congrats to him anyway.

Congratulations Greg!

It occurs to me I initially missed the part about the leg.  Now, I'm a bit more impressed.

/Still dope on a rope.

"a course so grueling his prosthetic leg broke twice over the 10 days "

OK, that's pretty bad-ass right there.

Greg is a damned good kid. I am glad this went green. Kid was offered retirement when he was wounded. He has been back to Afghanistan./subby

I went through @ FTKY in 87.  I did Day 0 twice due to back spams.  I hated the school as much as I loved wearing my badge on my uniform as I transitioned to National Guard service.  Reading through the different stories, he still overcame a lot of obstacles and I'm sure the Air Assault Sergeants were all smiles and found him to shake his hand after the road march.

Greg, you kick ass!  Well done!

Salute, SFC. on a job well done

Having earned my "Wop-Wop Wings", I know how difficult the course is. Of course, going through it on two legs was definitely a lot easier than doing it on one. Color me impressed.

Please on my congratulations to your brother, subby, from one NCO to another.

Grats to him.

Theres been a couple of stories I've read like this of guys going through RASP again after losing a limb in order to make it back into the regiment.

If his leg broke twice during the training, then maybe his leg isn't up to this sort of thing?

He's already served his hitch, and more.  Discharge him with honors and full benefits, or let him continue to serve in any of the specialties that do not require physical perfection.

I guess it's pretty serious.

How about he gets a better prosthetic leg and does what he damn well wants to do.

When you're going through the med-board process, they give you three basic options: get out (retirement for someone with his injuries), re-classify into a new job, or stick with what you know. He chose to stay in, he can do what he wants.

He has also just made life a lot more interesting for anyone who goes through the Sabaluski Air Assault School, and more uncomfortable for anyone who no-goes. "A one-legged man completed this obstacle! What's your excuse?"

I agree. He can do what he damn well pleases, as he has already proven.

Having said that, he's not actually required to do this shiat during his day to day activities. He said he wanted to do it because he didn't like the thought of sending the soldiers he supervised to the training without having done it himself.

I have to agree. If his prosthetics need upgrades because they keep breaking, that is bad news in real life. There really is no point in putting lives in danger if that level of effort was required just because the tech isn't there yet.

No, he cannot "do what he wants"--he's in the army.

Well considering the medical board left that option open to him, I'd say he can. Not to mention the fact that training for the Air Assault and Airborne schools is a hell of a lot more intense than actually being in an Air Assault or Airborne unit. He'll be fine. Besides the vast majority of people who go to those two schools never actually end up using that training, it's mostly used as a factor to help get promoted.

I am Air Assault too. Good for him.

Oh yeah, "fark you Air Assault Sargent".
