I think almost every Army wife/fiance/girlfriend/family member whose soldier is in Ranger School has at some point scoured the internet looking for answers to their (huge) list of questions about the course and found the following sources for answers:
- Surviving The Cut: Ranger School (Discovery Channel documentary on Ranger School)
- The Coveted Black and Gold (journal of a soldier in Ranger School in 2006)
- Communication During Ranger School: A Recap (blog post from a Ranger School wife, summer of 2011)
- Ranger School (blog post from a Ranger School Wife, fall of 2011)
I am one of those Army wives. My husband left for Ranger School 10 days ago. He asked me not to write about it until he made it through RAP Week (didn’t want to jinx it). Well, as of last Thursday, he made it through what I believe will go down as the hardest three days of his life. I couldn’t be more proud of my Ranger!
In the hopes of creating another source of answers (or even just experiences) for future Ranger School families, I’m going to keep track of our 61 days in a little series I like to call True Life: I’m A Ranger School Wife.
10 down…51 days to go…
