So would the Army actually build one up to become an Army Ranger?
Say there's a young fellow (19 years old), high school grad, but not very athletic... meaning, there's a lot of room to improve, no physical conditions to hold him back from doing the work, he just... doesn't do a lot. Would the Army build that person up to become Army Ranger-quality, through boot camp and advanced schooling? Or would they say at MEPS, "Well, you're not exactly qualified for such a job..."? Is it something they let you test for in Boot Camp or what?
