    I’ve seen Rangers(75th) whom didn’t get selected in SFAS and didn’t graduate from Ranger School… It speaks for itself.

  2. fgh,

    All because you are aware of some Rangers who were non-selects at SFAS or failed Ranger School? What is your experience with the Regiment and the training that it conducts? Soldiers from every unit in the military fail Ranger School (I recycled Darby) and flunk out of SFAS. If you don’t qualify that statement than it doesn’t really mean anything. For instance, I directly contradict your statement because I graduate from both Ranger School and SFAS as a member of 3rd Ranger Battalion.
