Incorrect. "Green berets" as civilians, Hollywood types and the media like to call them, are part of Army Special Forces. In other words, they are Special Forces operators. Army Rangers, also known as Airborne Rangers do not wear the green beret, they were the tan (formerly the black) beret. There are two different special operations units with completely different missions.

Entrance Information for Rangers
To become a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment you must begin with the nine weeks of Basic Training. Upon completion of Basic Training you will then attend Advanced Individual Training to obtain a Military Occupational Specialty (MOS). This training varies in length depending on the selected MOS. Next you must complete Airborne training. Upon graduation of Airborne School you will be assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment to attend the Ranger Indoctrination Program (RIP).

If you pass each of the required training schools and RIP, you will receive an assignment to either the 75th Ranger Regiment Headquarters or one of the three Ranger Battalions. sounds fun, sign me up!
RIP is anything but fun, of that, I can assure you.

the green beret and the army rangers are the same,i just read the fricken army special forces pamflet,
"the army rangers commonly refered as the green beret", their the same, and as for RIP, with all the training you get and all the tactices ect i don't think you'd die that easly, what you think were just gonna walk around casualy waiting around to get blown up or shot, i don't think so, i think your underestamating them alittle.

You are quite lucky I am in a patient mood today, young man.

Before I delve into your ignorance, I am going to give you two suggestions.
#1: Post less until you've actually done some research on the units you are attempting to discuss
#2: Adjust your attitude and I mean quickly or you will not enjoy your stay on this forum.

There are a few current and former members of the US Army Rangers as well as Army Special Forces on this forum, myself included. What you read in a book, and one you obviously misread, or one that should be pulled from the shelves for having absolutely no facts, does not give you any insight nor foreknowledge into either the Ranger Regiment nor Special Forces.

Who is this "we're" you've referred to? You have not graduated RIP, you are not even in the military and it is clear, you have absolutely no concept as to the purpose and intent of the Ranger Indoctrination Program.

Before you post again, rethink your attitude and do a little research. This is not a request. You'll find the members on this forum very helpful in answering questions and you have the potential to tap into a lot of minds of people that have already been where you are only dreaming to go. Do not screw up the opportunity to get first hand knowledge answers to any questions you may have because you are too busy being a "know-it-all."

Have a very happy day.

This is strike two, one more and you are seriously endangering your ability to remain on this forum. I suggest you put more forethought into your next post.

Forum Rules

Read the forum rules, at the bottom you will notice that no "Who's best," "Who's More Elite" posts are allowed. Only those members that have served within Special Operations Units would have the experience and knowledge to answer such question, and they won't, since each unit has different missions and purposes. One does not attempt to compare apples and oranges.

Who's Who In US SOF (Special Operations Forces)

You may also want to take a look at this thread, it may get you started on the research you need to do.
