POC at 5th group

Well, my time at the schoolhouse is drawing near it's end. It was suggested to us to start making contact with our groups around this time frame.
However, we weren't given the appropriate contact numbers. I've been doing some searching on my own, and have not come up with much. Anyone that would be willing to help me out or point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks in Advance.

AP- Trying not to be the new guy running around with blasting caps in his nose, and a demo knife.

Those are either the ones I got or came up with. I wasn't sure if calling the CSM or 1SG was a smartest way to go though...maybe an S shop though. Thank you.

Who do you want to talk to S-shop-wise? I've probably got an old phone list around somewhere.

1st Sergeant....am I about to walk into an ambush here?

lksteve- sounds like something you'd tell the new guy to do, then tell everyone else "hey watch this sh*t" j/k Thanks again.

mara- Well, I'm not exactly sure, hoping someone here could point me in the right direction, I may just throw the dice and use one of the numbers I got. My few years in regular Army just keep telling me that calling a CSM may not be a very well thought out plan of action.

There are First Sergeants in SF Battalions now? Are you looking for a support job or to get on an ODA?

not really...honest...for starters, if you call the CSMs office, chances are the SDNCO or someone in S1 will pick up the phone...

and like i said, you are going to meet the gentleman anyway...

I'm pretty sure they are only in HSC or GSC, the 1SGs' were just listed in with the group of numbers...and get on an ODA of course.

Agree with the CSM as initial POC

That's one of the many things the CSM does . Blitz
