Hey Z, take it from me, my lil bro can handle this and the 25 year old studs are no match. I have counseled him to go 11b, Airborne, get some experience and THEN put in for Ranger if he wants it.
"The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental." - John Steinbeck
