Anybody can go through Ranger School. Marines, SEALs, PJs, whoever wants to and can get a slot, hell ****ing legs that never jumped out of a plane. Ranger School has little to do with being a Ranger. I don't know why they would go through the SF pipeline.
Maybe he's talking about SOCM or the long course (18D)? Either way, that's not the same as going through the SF pipeline.
As I wrote before, I've read that somewere. If its not true, then sorry - my bad.
A. Para-Rescue trainee's (since they do not have the 1T2 AFSC, yet!) did attend the USASWC Special Operations Medic Course until 2002. At that time the USAF relocated their portion of the course to Kirkland AFB, NM.
B. These PJ's trainees did not attend the rest of the MOS 18D Q-Course, since this training was not specific to the PJ's mission.
C. The US Army's Ranger Course is not a specialty producing school, as such it is available to Marine's, sailors and airmen.
D. On the blue side, Rangers would attend the Combat Control Leaders course, since they are not airmen in CCT. This course is specific to 1C2 CCT airmen, mid-level NCO's at that!
No, the M-240B is not a standard weapon on a PJ team. They will need to be familiar with it, although they may not be proficient.
Pararescuemen from the 48th Rescue Squadron prepare to be picked up by an HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter as part of a combat search and rescue demonstration March 18 during the 2007 Aerospace and Arizona Days air show at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. The two-day air show offered public an up-close look at military and civilian aerial demonstrations and static-display aircraft from across the U.S. The theme for this year's show was "Davis-Monthan and Tucson: 80 Years of Airpower
Wrong! and Right!B. These PJ's trainees did not attend the rest of the MOS 18D Q-Course, since this training was not specific to the PJ's mission.
The PJ trainees just could not pass the school house curriculum! Many were being dropped for academic reasons, which cost AFSOC alot of mulah!
yup .50, have one photo like that, will search now.
