Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Airborne Ranger Song (US Army 82nd)
Just wanted to pipe in for the Joe who said he served in Regiment for three years and never once sang or marched to a cadence. B.S. - we used to have the Regimental and Battalion CDRs and CSMs call cadence during battalion runs on a regular basis.
The only time we didn't sing cadence was during squad PT. Marching to cadence was not unusual either. The only thing different was that the lyrics to the marching cadences had to be toned down if you were maneuvering through any public places on Benning.
It may be a surprise to at least one poster that "real Rangers" do actually sing Ranger cadences, and, no, they are not all recycles. What real Rangers don't do is write "lol" at the end of their gay monologue...
Have a nice day.
