My name is Yvette Benavidez Garcia and I am the proud daughter of Roy P. Benavidez, Medal of Honor Recipient (Vietnam). Chance referred me to your forum (thankfully).

I am looking forward to connecting with a lot of you on here as I know that many of you either knew my dad, or served with him.

Thanks, in advance, for sharing your stories with me about my dad. What an awesome family to be apart of.

With respect,
Yvette
Glad you made it!

Introduction

First off, Thank you for this incredible resource. Also, Thank you for your service.

I am 20 years old, recently finished my A.D. My whole life I have had the uncontrollable urge to serve my country at the highest capacity I could fathom. It took me a very long time to mature enough and wrap my mind and body around that same urge sadly, nevertheless; this is my time.

I have researched every single SOF occupation and always strongly considered the Navy SEALs as the path I would follow. Through my research and readings I found Army Special Forces and saw your mantra "De Oppresso Liber". This mantra for some reason has since then hit me hard, even when I was so motivated to become a SEAL. Part of the process that led me to pursue "the calling" ,as I have read from numerous QP's on this site. I found myself thinking that life would be everything I wanted and more once I attained a NSW Trident. This thought, could have ended my potential to serve at the highest capacity and perform my role in said capacity, if I hadn't revisited why I wanted to be a part of a SOF role.

Team, loyalty, drive, aggression and understanding the forces that work against and terrorize our country are why I want to be a Special Forces soldier. I have found my calling in life. I plan on improving my endurance, speed, situational awareness and ability to pay attention to details. I don't know how everything will work out. Not quitting is a given, I will perform to my closest rendition of perfection each and every day.

My next post will be made when I graduate SFQC.

Follow the calling.

Stay safe, best of luck in all life brings.

Thanks for the offer. The fact that I get to be among my dad's brothers-in-arms is good enough. I appreciate the inclusion. I am looking forward to this site.

Intro

Greetings,

Not going to do the life story here since that would be long, convoluted, and boring. Let it suffice for now that I am a 36yo airborne infantry veteran, I passed selection 7 or 8 years ago but declined to continue down the pipeline. Now I'm trying to rejoin the NG and go to SFAS again. The dream lives on. Feel free to message me or ask questions.

I already sent an info sheet in via nationalguardsf.com and I'm waiting to hear back from them; it's been over a week now, idk what to expect for a turnaround. My next move is to hit up RI NG POC for A 2/19.

I used this site as a resource last time around and it was very helpful, but I never felt the need to post since most of my questions were answered by looking around on the site. Posting now as a general shout out and to talk about options. I'm not ruling out an active duty run.

Thanks in advance for tips and tricks.

Introduction

My name is Flipper, I am a direct commission officer from the ROTC program at Furman University in Greenville, SC, graduated in May 2015. After graduation I found home in Kansas City, MO and joined the Army Reserve Medical Corps as a Health Services Administrator, subsequently, joining the 7227th Medical Support Unit in Columbia, MO as the Executive Officer. I have an Uncle who is a retired “Quite Professional,” and he has helped to guide me on this journey towards being awarded the Green Beret.

As a Reserve Soldier, if all goes as planned, my plan of action is as follows: I am looking to be recruited by the SWTD 5th Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group (Airborne), a National Guard Unit in Colorado (contact has already been made). I will attend their Special Forces Readiness Evaluation (SFRE) drill, followed by SFAS, and then transition into the National Guard before attending SFQC.

In closing, thank you for providing interested Civilians and Soldiers like me with the tools for success. You have done what you can to make us successful, it is now on us, as individuals, to actually succeed.

(EDIT: No names. Nicknames are fine. Team Sergeant)
