    Hey TW!

    I graduated Ranger School this past Friday and am so happy to get back to civilization. I have honestly missed TW. I took the extended tour - recycled Mountains - but I made it through. I am looking forward to catching up on all the TW activity I've missed over the past few months.

    I will PCS soon, and hope to go to Ft. Richardson, AK. I don't have orders yet, but I'm going to try and make that happen. I've heard that a tab opens a lot of doors for that sort of thing. If it does, I'll turn the PCS into a road/camping trip and drive myself in my Tacoma from Ft. Benning GA to Alaska. I looking forward to it - it will be my first adventure in my Tacoma.

    Anyways, I don't know how big the TW network is up in Alaska, but if anyone is out there, I'd love to meet up once I get there.

    I hope all is well TW!

    Below is a picture of my Dad pinning on my Ranger Tab at Victory Pond.

    Wow. What a unbelievably hard test and you passed. Congrats Ranger! I didn't see a Ranger Regiment in AK, will that conflict with your duty station request?

    From this old disabled Veteran- Thank you very much for your hard work. Now being a Ranger, "hard work" is probably an understatement.

    Dude, you are a Rrrrrranger now!!!! Congratulations man! I was thinking about putting in to do Ranger about 3 years ago myself when I joined, but after I saw what they go through in training and the lack of sleep and food, I said no way!
