About the Author

Ranger PerotsMy name is Ranger Perots. Obviously, that’s not my real name and it’s up to you if you would like to learn more about me. Seriously? Well, I hope you wouldn’t.

I’m a member of the Armed Forces of the Philippines from the best branch of service (Ooh!) Ahh Army? Is this for real? Anyway, that’s what I know since my cadetship at the Philippine Military Academy.

When I get so stressed up doing nothing, which is normally happening most of the time, I have the urge to write. Fortunately, I was able to learn how to make my own blog. Kinda! So I’m finally here wandering in the vast wilderness of Blogosphere.

BTW, I’m inspired to make this particular blog because I’ve seen several soldiers who really needed help and a lot of attention. They are the ones who are not able to take care of their financial health that caused them a lot of problems. It greatly affected their families and performance of their duties. Ang haba naman ng explanation! In short and simple language, gusto ko lang talagang mambola. Alang magawa eh! To continue my pambobola: because of these soldier’s problems, they became the pain in the arse! Ouch! Well, it’s really hard to manage men if they have a lot of financial problems. I’m sure makaka relate kayo sakin. Mahirap utusan, ang bagal kumilos dahil wala yatang S/A (Subsistence Allowance) eh hindi alam saan kukuha ng makain at minamalas na sa Mess Sgt. Di ba? Painful pa sa stomach! Hanap na lang ng talbos ng kamote malapit sa bunkers sabay hingi ng kanin. Now, that’s the bitter fruit, I mean, truth!

Another thing, marami ng budik budik na sundalo. Buchalo eh sarap banatan ang crispy pata at litson manok. Sabayan pa ng malamig na San Mig Lights. Ayun, pagdating ng Physical Fitness Test hindi alam ang gagawin. Nakaka panic talaga lalo na kapag alam mong babagsak ka sa PFT. On the other hand, sa lahat ng mga can take sa PFT, well, you can share your advice in this blog so that we can help those people who don’t want to help themselves. I would also like to share healthy living tips like kung mahilig kang mag skag or manigarilyo at ayaw mong paawat then at least take Vitamin C everyday di ba? May sense naman eh. Mahirap magka-cancer!

In addition, I’m really amazed with the fast evolution of technology nowadays. In this regards, I would like to share (IMO) the best gadgets for soldiers. As I said, IMO (In my opinion) only. These are gadgets that are widely used by uniformed men and women of the AFP. I’m not really a techy guy but I do have some previous researches about smartphones and other stuff. Also, you can share through comments about the best gadget for you and the reason why you really like to use it.

The rest of the topic will be anything under the sun! Sky’s the limit as long as hindi tumaob kaldero natin. I would suggest for a healthy discussion. I would like to tackle some issues regarding Militics in a positive way. Meron ba? Well, let’s see. I also added a topic about career development. This will comprise more about information on career courses as posted in our official website. I also suggest more interactions about this matter.

Also, I would like to entertain comments. Guest posting is also welcome in my blog. Anyone can post in this site but it has to be moderated first. Just send your message to my email address:

    • Hi Melvin,

      Thanks for that generous comment! I’m happy that this blog reached you. Actually, that’s really my goal. I would like to help our fellow soldiers improve their financial health and performance in their duties.

      It’s good to know that you also like to write. I can post your article here. Just send it to my email address. Take care and more power to you! 😉

  2. Well, this blog is somewhat informative, especially for citizens who don’t know any better with regard to the realities of a regimented life, including the horrors of war. keep the information coming and let others learn of what it is like to be a warrior in the battlefield.

    • Hi Maricris,

      Thanks for dropping by. I’m so glad you discovered my blog. It’s an honor to have a Philippine Daily Inquirer staff giving great feedback!

      • You’re welcome! Actually, Sir Charly Holganza’s blog led me to this website. I was a fan of Ms Gail Tan Ilagan’s dissertation/book entitled “War Wounded” and I’ve heard Sir Holganza was one of those who made it possible. Please read more of Inquirer stories, especially those I’ve written 🙂

  3. Hi Maricris,

    Sir Charly Holganza’s blog is one of my inspirations. Of course, he’s my upperclassman. LOL! 😀 Anyway, I’ve read your news stories in PDI. It’s so interesting. Actually, I like it! I wonder how many researchers you have for one story. I’m just curious.

    • Thanks Ranger Perots! Researchers? Do you mean sources? For each raw story (unedited), we do our own research/legwork that includes doing interviews of sources (of info), cross-checking/fact-checking, and of course covering the event itself. It’s the editors who decide whether additional infos are needed during editing. That’s where our PDI researchers come in.

    This is a nice blog. I agree that a lot of soldiers including me needs advice specially when it comes to being financially literate and subsequently being a soldier with financial freedom. A soldier must be financially, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically healthy so that he can perform well and become a better soldier and a person…

  8. Hi Ranger Perot,

    I chanced upon your blog when I was looking for references on the Philippine Scout Ranger. I saw the History Channel documentary on the Rangers, and I was very impressed on the training (especially the part when they/you had to go a whole week without sleep. Navy Seals still had a cumulative five-hour sleep).

    But what struck me was your knowledge on financial management. You see, I’m a financial advisor myself. A Registered Financial Planner and a Certified Investment Solicitor. And like you, I also love writing (I used to run a blog called The Wealth Warrior but it was hacked years back), and sharing what I know to the public through articles and seminars.

    I hope we can correspond more. I would love to learn from you too.

    More power to you and your blog!

    Kind regards,

    • Hi Ken,

      First of all, I highly appreciate your positive comments regarding this blog. Thank you very much. With regards to the Scout Ranger Training, yeah, it’s really a tough one. I never thought I could survive every minute of it especially during the hell week. I felt like I’m one of the zombies in the Walking Dead series. LOL! 🙂 Anyway, it’s good to hear that a Registered Financial Planner and a Certified Investment Solicitor noticed this simple blog. Sad to hear that your website was hacked few years back. Well, you could start a new one. Also, you’re welcome to post some articles here. Just contact me any time thru my email address.

      Thanks again and more power to you!

      Kindest regards,

      Ranger Perots
