How long does one serve in 1 Para before they have to go back to their original unit?
The US Army Rangers it's a two year enlistment and in Canada's CSOR it's three years.

Not for everyone, I know a guy who passed through Ranger training (RIP back then) soon after joining the army and he is still there 6+ years later.

Has he been promoted past E-4 yet?Because from what I've heard you can't stay in the Rangers as well as CSOR here in Canada and get promoted unless you return to your parent unit and serve a few years back with them.

I've fired off an email to him to check.
But as far as I remember he signed up to the army with a ranger contract, he did basic, airborne school then went on to the regiment....I don't think he had a parent unit to go to.
