The movies make this look very different from reality.
Recovering from Ranger School, Popp was recycled and had a number of sick calls. This is the story of “The Big Get-Over.”
Ranger School wasn’t all wine and roses. There’s a lot of abuse and some guys who deserve to be punched for it.
Getting drunk on a boat sounds fun, but shit can go south really quick.
Obstacle courses are rough. Gun fights in bars that look like a Peckinpah climax are even rougher.
When shit goes south, sometimes you have to actually run for your life.
When you’re driving five tons of steel on uneven terrain, things can go wrong in a hurry.
Don’t judge Popp until you’ve heard the reason why.
Good Popp pays tribute to “The Gunny.”
Your body does really weird things when it’s exhausted and emaciated. It does things that it has never done before and never will do again, like sleepwalking.
