Yeah I think a competition between marine recon and Army rangers is more fair.
I agree with the Air Force being at the bottom. I've got a friend who was ex-Air paramaedical Rescue. Air Force SF's that go in with other SF
units from different branches of the military. Real hardcore guys, but...even this guy said that apart from them all the air force guys were
pussy's in bar fights. Not saying that it doesn't take balls to fly a fighter jet, just that in hand to hand combate they weren't so
Most SF groups will clear room at a crowed mess table for a AF Paramedical Rescue guy. They are the ones that go in to rescue downed pilots, and
injured SEALS, Rangers,Delta,Force Recon guys off the field, or out of enemy territory, also assist in on site target designation for smart bombs,
sorta like a forward air controller. And they can fill in for a Navy field medic, which are deployed to a lot of military units including SF ones.
He concured that navy guys were down near the bottom, but he held out for SEALS and said they will kick your ass if you prevoke them, and that yes
they can stomp just about most people into the ground.
He also said and I have heard this confirmed with other military guys, that almost nobody from any branch messes with a Marine Gunny Seargent. He
will most definantly kick your ass. Even SF guys don't like to tangle with a vetran Gunny. Not prudent at all.
