Hello, I'm currently studying at Penn State Berks for Mechanical Engineering. Want to pursue a career with the Special Forces after college, I'll be using this site to help prepare myself for selection and Q course.

Intro

How's it goin', y'all. I'm a former Avionics Mechanic, now contracted with ROTC. My intent is to learn all I can about the profession in order to help me make a branch decision. As of right now, I'm looking at Infantry, because I believe the knowledge and skills one develops as an 11A would be beneficial both during selection/Q course and as an 18A. I look forward to perusing the forums and getting engaged with you all. Have a good one!

I am a civilian and a contractor looking to learn as much as I can here. This is an amazing resource. I had been interested in the NG for some time but may have missed the age cutoff.

Thank You

Hello,

I want to thank you for this invaluable resource and community.

My name is Joe. I am a 30 yr old husband and father of two working as a firefighter/NREMT in MS. I enlisted in the MSARNG to begin the journey on the SF Pipeline. This site has been a steady source of advice and information for which I am extremely grateful.

Thank you again for your time and guidance

Intro

My name is Jared, 26 y.o. Current member of the MI National Guard. Had aspirations for a long time to do work for an SF type organization. Don't come from a mil background so this was a new adventure for both me and my family. Since I joined the Army in '13, I latched on to what they had to offer. I spent lots of free time during basic/AIT learning about the Army and their special forces groups. I have since figured out how this whole Army thing works (or at least think I have) and I am currently attempting to find an SFRE course through 20th group in IL to give my shot at joining the SF community. Nothing would give me more quiet pride and a feeling of service than to join something like this. I finally feel like I had a goal to reach for and I am looking forward to what the future has in store for me.

Been a member on here for a little while absorbing the info I can get and would like to get my intro in.

Additionally, if anyone is in the MI area who could assist me on my journey, I would greatly appreciate all the help I can get.

My name is Larry. Served in the Army back in the 70's. Was in Co A, 1st Bn, 7th SFG(A). Was an 11B back in those days. Got out in late 1974, so that makes me kind of an old guy now. Very proud of my service and to all those who have/are serving. Joined this board to keep up with the goings on in the SF community. DOL.

Introduction

After 24 yrs I retired from the Army Reserves and E8. I spent the last couple years as an instructor and prior to that 1SG of a CSH. Larger operational unit was more fun for me due to the types of missions, funding available to support humanitarian aid missions and the leadership challenges that a large Company brings.
I have had the luck to be at the right place at the right time to be trained in 4 MOS.
- 11B
- 91B (combat medic as a pre-req to 91V)
- 91V Respiratory Therapy
- 91A Biomed (medical equipment repair)
I work as a Biomed now specializing in repair of imaging equipment.
I've been a SCUBA Instructor, Licensed Boat Captain (50 Ton Master, Near Costal), and Instrument Rated Pilot for single engine and VFR pilot for multi-engine planes.
Combat tour in Kuwait and Iraq, ending in dodging mortars and RPGs at Anaconda, 2003-2004. Of the 22 months on orders, 13 were in theater. While there I was at CSHs so no direct contact with anything worse than malaria meds and the DFAC food.

I look forward to being a member of this group.

Good Evening

Good Evening QP's,

It's an honor to have the ability to communicate with some of the greatest men this country has to offer. I am humbly and respectfully thankful for your service to the people of this country and foreign nations. My name is Cody, and I am currently a political science major at UF. I hope I can extract the worldly knowledge that you all have to further my understanding of politics. After I graduate from school, I aspire to attend SFAS. I am very excited to absorb the wisdom graciously presented in this forum. Thank you for your time.

Earnestly,
Cody
