Big props to Big Papa...Way to take one for the team! Now the rest of us can ride in safety, free from terrorists and weapons of mass destruction! (of course I mean those not in Iraq, since they didn't have any in the first place)
All jokes aside, Big Papa gets a big :thumb: and a thank you from yours truly.

NOT EX-ARMY:
Awe man my advice? if they have guns dont wait for them to shot at you, shot them first let god deal with the good/bad ones thats his job.
Are you coming here to Texas for Basic?
Also my brother is an airborne ranger at FB, Captain DeOre. If you come across him, run.

So 13+ weeks of Basic / AIT training, 3 weeks Airborne, and 4 weeks of RIP. Nothing fun about any of that. RIP isn't as bad as Ranger School but it still is hard. Then after all of that and you make it into the 75th, I hope you are ready to be sleeping in the dirt a lot, A WHOLE LOT.

Good luck to you. Keep your mouth shut and your ears and eyes open. Remember to breathe, when everything is going to **** remember to breathe. It'll help.
