Hey y'all

Guyontheright.. you have it right on as far as army units in the ROK go.

Plus, we've got Osan Airbase (maybe more?)... along with Airmen stationed on army posts, such as Camp Humphreys.

As far as I know, there is only a handful of Marines in country. We do have Marines come for training... but usually just TDY and don't stay long.

My older brother is in Korea right now. In Camp Casey, he's a tracked vehicle repairman.

If you're going in as 11B there is a good chance you can get Ranger school depending on your unit. It's all about budget. Some have more money than others and can pay for the hooah schools more than others. The same goes for Airborne and Dope on a rope school. You should check the NG units in your area and see if any have an LRS unit. Most of those have fairly good $$$ coming in and can usually get slots.
Also, remember, Ranger School will not and does not make you a Ranger, it just makes you Ranger qualified. If you want to become a Ranger, go Active Duty on an Option 40 contract, survive RIP and go to a Ranger Battalion. There is no such thing as a NG or Reserve Ranger unit.

LRS. My guy is in a LRSD unit, he loves it. He was on the line for a while in Iraq, then got switched over. It was definately a heaven send. LRSD has treated him well. They get deployed a lot, and do some crazy stuff.. but if you want people who take care of their own. LRSD is it.

As far as Ranger training goes.. I'm a "chick" so thats out for me (for now..). But, at Jump School.. close to the last day, the black hats asked who wanted to go to RIP. If you wanted to go, you raised your hand, signed some papers, and that was it. ... I raised my hand, but they said, "No Airborne..put your hand down" Damn..

Good Luck and Rndersafe is right. Go active.

They may not send you for various reasons .. you're not in the "right" MOS. There isn't enough money. Or there is no reason for you to go to abn school no matter your MOS. If they don't have a need for a "P" (Paratrooper MOS identifier) then they aren't going to waste the money to send you, regardless. You might try to get dope on a rope (Air Assault).
