I have no idea if this is a big deal. This is more of a question to those that would know. It looks like Cotton did go to Ranger School and got a Ranger tab. However, he claimed to be an “Army Ranger,” which I guess it typically understood to be those who served in a Ranger battalion (75th Ranger Regiment).
So, for those who know; no issue, small issue or big issue?
This is going to sound like a leading question, but it’s not. If this isn’t an issue I have no intent of trying to make it one. Is “Ranger” a title, if so, is it an official one? Are there different types of Ranger or Ranger titles? If I saw someone with a Ranger tab, would it be appropriate to consider them a Ranger or is something else needed?
He’s 3rd Cav quick response strike team, Quicksilver something or other. He can supposedly ride and shoot from a horse lol, didn’t know they still did that. Still working on the spurs, doesn’t have them yet.
This exactly. You can go through the Ranger training course, but not actually service in in a Ranger unit afterwards. Just making it through the course makes you a badass in my book. When I was at jump school the black hats came through one day and asked if anybody was interested in going to Ranger school. I of course did not take them up on the offer. Sorta regret that now. Would I have passed? Who knows, but I should’ve at least pushed myself.
