Thank you for taking the time to vote for us, it means a lot! We are still working hard to bring you the funniest stories the military has to offer and give our vow to highlight those who are douchey! You can also expect to see some new writers here in the future!
June 1 is Coming – The beginning of June is almost here and that means the rugby party in Philadelphia is about to kick off. Don’t have tickets? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of every person, by name and email address, in your group and we will take care of the rest. Don’t have money for food? We have got you covered! Ranger Up and American Sin Bin are hosting the “Official Tailgate Party.” There really is no reason why you shouldn’t be there.
Portland, Oregon here we come! – Just in case you have been deployed to asscrackistan over the last week and didn’t hear the official announcement; Tim Kennedy is challenging the current belt holder Luke Rockhold on July 14 in Portland, OR. Start making your summer road-trip plans now to support our friend Tim Kennedy!
New Releases – Ranger Up Released two shirts this week. The first is Artillery, Argument of Kings – Remember that time when the side with little or no artillery won? Yeah, me either. Nothing really says, “I am going to kick your ass until you die or quit” like a continuous barrage of 155mm rounds exploding next to you, over you, and all around you. In fact, well trained troops using the magic of kinematics and gunpowder to deliver accurate fire missions in under two minutes to within a few meters is about the scariest thing on earth. Oh you’re in a tank? So what? Oh you’re in a building? So what? Oh you’re Darth Vader fighting off a bunch of laser rounds coming at you from all sides with ease? Well let’s see you force block six guns firing HE, DPICM, and white phosphorous. We’re gonna go ahead and fire an illum round too so we can watch the end of your Sith self! Luke may have forgiven you for killing all those Jedi kids, but we sure as shit haven’t! Sorry, I just watched a Star Wars marathon. The point is, artillery is scary and thank God we’ve got the best on the planet. Napoleon called artillery the final argument of kings. Well, hail to the King, baby.
The other new release from Ranger Up is the Caffeine and Hate T-shirt. A long, drawn out description really isn’t necessary. This shirt is self-explanatory. Make sure you take advantage of the pre order pricing on this shirt, and then use that savings to go get another cup of coffee!
