“The United States Army took the top 1% of all the grunts they had and then consolidated them into one unit, taught them how to jump out of fucking airplanes, then pointed them at some shit they didn’t like and said, ‘Get rid of it. I don’t care how.’” That’s how YouTube and TikTok comedian “The Fat Electrician” describes the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Unless you’ve spent time in the Army or have worked alongside “the military’s sharpest blunt instrument,” there’s a chance you might still be a little foggy on the difference between a Ranger tab and a Ranger scroll. While the difference is pretty straightforward, there’s at least one private first class out there who’s still not sure but is too timid to ask an NCO. No worries, soldier; this video explains what it means to be a part of the “largest hoard of Apex grunts” in the most Ranger way possible.
