  •  The Ranger tab is worth as much for promotion. (9+ / 0-)

    The EIB and the Ranger tab are the most valuable things a soldier can get. (Well? An Infantry soldier for certain, anyways). I was never interested in being a Ranger, myself. I was frickin' good at my job but I was just never that hard core, if ya know what I mean?

    The company brass kept laughing because SF kept trying to recruit me and they knew that kind of of stuff was not for me. Not that I couldn't do it, but they knew that I wouldn't do it. lol

    •  I know exactly what you mean. (8+ / 0-)

      I was a Marine, and that's why I never got an EIB. Lots of excellent grunts who don't want to take part in the hoorah (translates to Hooah for Army folk) schools and such.

      One of the best soldiers I worked with had zero "scare badges"

      I do think the EIB is a pretty cool thing though, it shows you took your job seriously and excelled at it.
