Exchange Officer

Does SF offer any exchange programs for officers nowadays? The 18A description mentions it ("Serves as a Commander, Staff Officer, Advisor, Exchange Officer ..."), but I've been hard pressed to find an example of such a program other than Colonel Charlie Beckwith and the British SAS in the 60's. Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough. I know the Navy SEALs have exchange programs with the Australian SASR and the British SBS. I was just wondering if SF does something similar. Any info would be much appreciated.

It will be hard to be an exchange officer if you can not follow simple rules like POST YOUR INTRO 1st.

Why?

Are you an SF officer?

I thought you wanted to be an 18X?
