#1 Remember, as troo conservatives, we are required to worship anyone in a uniform because that automatically makes them a hero and not a bureaucratic careerist hack wearing a skinsuit of a gutted institution.

#3 A good friend of mine went through Ranger training and told me about it. Basically it's a rigorous multi-day course (in the swamps or the mountains depending upon the course) that most athletes with determination could complete... but the thing is done so at near starvation levels and with lack of sleep. The basic lesson if you survive is that mentally you can handle anything. For what it's worth.

I'm guessing the ladies that could finish Ranger training without a cheat are professional athletes and not the kind to join up in the Army and then fight for inclusion in Ranger School.
