They try to train as hard as the Rangers. Shoot, even the swabees who can't qualify as Rangers copy-catted them with their very own Seals. Gotta give them credit. The wing-walkers (Air Force) even gave it a shot. You wanna be a Ranger you gotta join the Army.
(By the way, I'm former Army, and yet the FINEST Officer who ever lived was Gen. Chester Puller)
Seriuosly, EVERY branch has an ultra-elite group within. They are ALL incredibly GREAT. Who is the best? Depends on the mission. Missions vary only as much as the limits of possibilities.
I worked with the Rangers.....
I weren't impressed....
