US Army Ranger School?

I'll be deploying to Afghanistan in October 2008 and am fully promotable. Anyone have anything they can say... show more My lifelong dream ever since I joined is to become a ranger.

Oh and the process when I am in the position, I'm not even entirely sure how one gets the chance to go to ranger school! Thanks in advance.
