Thank you, everyone who has served their country. Today, let's all stop and take a moment to remember those who gave their all for our freedom. Mr. Ray Charles sang of our beautiful heroes once, and I hope that the song touches you as it does me.

Ruin, Marcinko, HF, Saint, and our other members who are or have served, thank you, and God bless you.

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of my Ranger Regiment.

Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move farther, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.

Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.

RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You keep on kicking ass, brother. Someday, somewhere, I've got a beer with your name on it.

Thank you, everyone who has served their country...Ruin, Marcinko, HF, Saint, and our other members who are or have served, thank you, and God bless you.

Sorry I missed this Para, I was at Camp Shelby (well, actually I was in Hattiesburg for R&R that day).

I appreciate the thanks. It's the only time I stop and think about what I do and why I do it. I've received lots of thanks and handshakes since I've joined, and it really helps this PFC affirm his decision.

Thank you Para, and others for your support, and helping us keep the faith. :)

Seen this post a while ago didn't really know what to say.

This uniform comes with a great deal of heritage, honor, and respect. Everytime I meet some one on the streets and get a handshake or thank you, like Ruin, It reminds me who I am actually serving and why I am serving. That trust the majority of the civilian population puts into our men and women in ranks always keeps me striving to do better. To never let them down when they may need us the most.

Geronimo!

You just remember how many of us love you and support you for serving your country. Don't pay attention to the asshats who disrespect you. God bless you for serving, brother.
