Languages?

I'm currently in the qualification course and would like to get some clarification on what languages Soldiers in 5th Special Forces group have.

Honestly that's not something you need to worry about. Assuming you haven't gotten far enough along to be assigned a language, it'll be whichever one we tell you you're getting. Primarily Arabic (if you have the aptitude). No - I'm not fucking with you. You don't get to pick your language. I know these things because the guys that figure out the language assignments work with me. They tell SWCS what the Regiment needs and SWCS produces it.

And whichever language you wind up with - do your best. It would really suck to deliberately flunk out of Arabic thinking they'll just recycle you into French and suddenly find yourself dropped with a NTR for a LOM and reassigned for the needs of the Army. LOM is a character flaw we can't afford to tolerate (and the standards are pretty rigid at the moment).

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
