Before a qualified paratrooper can take the grueling Airborne Ranger training course, he must attend a three week Ranger Indoctrination Program that is guaranteed to weed out 40% of the candidates. Next, there's a three week Pre-Ranger Program to prepare the candidate for the full eight weeks of unprecedented stress, pain, discomfort, snake-eating, forced marching, sleeplessness, and jumpint out of an aircraft with knives between their teeth, just like actual combat, but without live ammo. FREEFALL enjoyed every minute of it!
"Here is a trooper who exemplifies the very best we an produce. Someone who is highly motivated, possesses and unparaleled degree of technical skill and boundless fonts of energy and determination. He can run faster, jump higher, and do more push-ups than any soldier who has ever survived Ranger School. He has a Master's degree in Eastern Philosophy and is honest to a fault. His only problem is that his ego is about as big as the Grand Canyon!"
Toy Notes: Item #6568. The prototype shown in the 1990 insert catalog has two hoses attaching to his air mask.
