Completed MEPS Physical. Got my Grade D approved. Returning to MEPS for contract negotiations tmw. The Navy is now forcing me to stay until EAOS.


Heard from a guy who knows a guy that Selection is open all branches via TDY orders. Any confirmation on this?

Thanks again.

Got 35F. No way was HRC giving me 18X or even airborne in my contract.

Completed my TS screening. Waiting early out request to be approved so I can move up my transfer from eaos to fiscal year.

Best way to get a spot at selection from FT Hauchuca?

Let me ask you two questions that were asked of me when I interviewed for the
S[pecial] F[orces] O[fficer's] C[ourse] in front of the 7th SF Group Commander.
It was July 1975. His name was Colonel Norton.

This was before there was an SFAS -- shortly after when dinosaurs roamed the earth -- and your "branch" (Army talk for job manager) had to give permission for an officer to even apply for Special Forces training and assignment. There were the usual hard pass/fail physical and psych and security clearance hurdles, but ultimately a candidate ended up sitting in a hard backed chair at a place called Smoke Bomb Hill face to face with a Colonel -- not smiling -- who asked:

"What is the mission of the United States Army Special Forces?"

"What can you offer that demonstrates your ability to conduct that mission?"

And so I ask you the same questions.

Those are some heavy questions. Been thinking about them all day. Thanks for forcing me to look inwards.
