I am glad that you brought up Ranger school. What benefit does it, really, have (other than another merit badge on your uniform). Granted, you do learn a broad range of skills, but in a terrible environment, both from a learning and retention aspect.
And, it is basically a squad leader's school, so why do all the damned LT's take up space in the school, which could be better spent teaching E4's and E5's how to better be E6's (assuming that it is a valid learning environment).
From my experience, tabbed SL's, PSG's and PL's don't perform any better in their job (many fall into lazy habits learned in school, like improper AtAiv call for fires).
Don't get me started on the ridiculous length of their opord's. I am not trying to come off as a hater here, I think that, in our day when (literally) EVERY 11B is going to get tested in combat (which is a whole hell of a lot tougher/more intense then anything that they throw at you in Ranger school, what does the school have to offer. Which show's you are more of a badass, and tab or a CIB? Plus, what 175#er really needs to lose 30?
