Join the Ranger Up Militia!

19 November 2008 – the day we launched the Ranger Up Militia.

What is the Ranger Up Militia?

The Ranger Up Militia is made of the Ranger Up’s strongest supporters – the folks that are fired about what we’re trying to do and want to help get the word out about Ranger Up.

Why start the Ranger Up Militia?

Ranger Up is made up of a small group of vets that work nonstop to make the idea of Ranger Up a reality. There are a lot of things that we want to do for the troops and the fans and we quite candidly can’t do it without help. There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

Short version – we need help.

How do I join?

Simple – all you have to do is send us your name, email address, and general location (Fort Benning, Norfolk Naval Base, Smithfield Fire Station, etc.) via email to business@rangerup.com and let us know you want to join.

What do I have to do if I join?

You never have to do anything. You’re helping us out. We’ll make requests from time to time and if you can help us out, we appreciate it. The first two things we are asking for help with are as follows:

1) Please send us the names and email addresses of at least three people you know that would like to join our email list (business@rangerup.com). The biggest challenge we face is getting the word out that we exist. This is the best way we know how to combat that. If you know more people that would love our site, then please send more emails, but please only send emails of people you have permission from. We don’t want to spam anyone.

2) Put up some Ranger Up posters for us – we need your help to get the word out, so put them up anywhere you think they are appropriate – the barracks, the firehouse, the police station, the gym, the PX – anywhere! All you have to do is write us at business@rangerup.com and request posters (let us know how many you want). Once they’re up – let us know where you put them – and send a picture if you can! We’ll post them!

What do I get if I help?

We’re reluctant to make this a published tit for tat, because we really only want people doing this that are fired up about Ranger Up. That being said, I will mysteriously say that the folks that routinely help us will get rewarded – at a minimum with free gear every now and then. Over time, this could turn into a pretty good deal for people that help us the most (keep in mind that Tommy, the current head of Ranger Up Operations started as a guy that wrote the occasional article for us, then progressed to helping with design ideas, and now runs our warehouse!)

Thanks for your support!!!

About Ranger Up Pre-Orders

What is a Pre-Order?
A pre-order is an order that allows you to purchase an item that is arriving soon. These arriving soon items will be marked as “Pre-Order”.

Why Pre-Order an item?
The benefit of Pre-Order items is that you can get the product at its limited, lower pre-order price. If the price goes up, you will not be affected. Once a Pre-Order item is switched to an in stock item, it will return to its higher, in stock price.

Next, your chances of getting a product is much greater with a pre-order. At times a limited edition or a hard to find items may sell out before they actually come into stock. You may also face having to wait several months after its release, for it to become available again, if it comes back into stock at all.

All pre-orders are on a first come first serve basis and are filled by the original order date. It is possible for an item to be sold out even as a Pre-Order due to limited supplies. Under no circumstances will we fill an order out of sequence.

When does my Pre-Order ship?
Each Pre-Order item has an expected “ship date” of 3-4 weeks.

What if I order in stock merchandise with my Pre-Order?
All items will ship together when your Pre-Order arrives. If you need the in stock items to be shipped right away a second order should be placed. One containing the In Stock items and another with the Pre-Order items. Note: We do this to minimize the cost passed on to customers.
