I'm scheduled to go to ALC next month and I really want to take the opportunity to walk on to Ranger school afterwards. I've heard that recruiters are denied that opportunity which wouldn't suprise me because I was slotted to go to Ranger school and RSLC before I came down on orders for Recruiting, and they canceled both of those courses for me to go to the ARC. I understand that commanders worry about the mission because they think one person wil affect the recruiting mission within a center however that's just not the case with our center, we're the top recruiting center in all of 6th brigade at the moment and I know for a fact our center would be good to go while I'm gone for a few months. A friend of mine recently went and tried to walk on to Ranger school but was pulled aside and told he was not going to be able to do that. If this is true I don't think it's right to mess with a Soldiers opportunity to do something to advance in their career, especially not a detailed recruiter who's recruiting time is short lived and will be returning to the line eventually.

BC said he would review that on a case by case basis. Dude out of Long Beach pretty much screwed that opportunity for everyone else though. He went after ALC then came back n said he was going to ETS. Add on the fact that CSM does not favor schools that are not related to recruiting. Ask Burbank the trouble a couple have had just getting Airborne n Air Assault (relatively short schools) n the reason they are being denied. Good riddens to recruiting duty.
