Why We Fight #20,124
Book Review: Senator Marco Rubio's "An American Son"

Why are standards plummeting in the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program?

Jack Murphy over at SOFREP wants to know why a recent Ranger Assessment class had a 80% graduation rate:

...Something changed with RASP class 5-12. In the class that the Discovery Channel filmed, 20 RASP students failed Land Nav and still graduated. 7 students were caught drinking and still graduated. A student received 90% negative peer reviews and still graduated. Since class 5-12, graduation rates have continued to be abnormally high with upwards to 130 students graduating per class.

After being held accountable to standards and enforcing them as well, these numbers leave many current and former Rangers embarrassed, disgusted, and ashamed...

It's definitely not good, no matter how you slice and dice the numbers.
