This is an interesting one. A client of mine claims to have gone through Ranger school. This by itself is not too surprising, but here is the rest of his story.
He claims he enlisted as 11B. Went to OSUT and then Jump School at Benning. So far so good. Then he claims to have gone directly from BAC to Pathfinder School- now the red light goes off in my head. THEN-he just can't help himself- he says he went directly from Pathfinder to Ranger School. I don't know much, but I do not see Mother Army spending this kind of $$$ on a cherry enlistee. After Ranger school he was stationed at Campbell with the 101st.
His service dates are 1982-1986 and his name is Rod (short for Rodney?) Smith.
If anybody here has access to the RTB class roosters it would be great to clear this up.
Thanks in advance.
