Hello gents,

24 y/old, recently enlisted in the Guard with a Rep-63. Read the forums religiously prior to enlisting to get a better idea of the trials ahead, and what the profession entails. Just wanted to say hello, and thanks for the insight.

Cheers

Introduction

Good afternoon gents,

I stumbled on this site a few months back, looking for some tidbits while I get ready for selection. I am 27, 1LT in a Transportation Co (Guard) in Pennsylvania. I have gone through SFREs in NC and continue to await IST into the NC guard. Once IST is complete, ill be off to SFAS. It might be odd hearing a Transportation Officer going this route, but this is the direction I wish to pursue.

If you are a junior officer in an non-combat arms branch, like myself, it is imperative to get with your readiness NCO (and SF unit transitioning into) and stay on top of specific paper work needed!

In the mean time, I enjoy daily workouts and finding new methods to improve my overall fitness.

Introduction

Good morning gentlemen:

I originally was going to wait until I commission to introduce myself but decided it would be best to write an introduction so that I can reach out to members on the site (there are quite a few posts/threads that have been answered hundreds of times either somewhere on this forum or elsewhere on the internet and I won't add to that clutter).

In January, I signed my 09S contract for active duty. I want to branch Infantry, Armor, or Engineering. I am currently double majoring in Computer Engineering and Applied Mathematics and am minoring in Physics with a 3.65 GPA and am graduating this month.

I have worked as a researcher at my university and have a book chapter published on neural networks. I hope to publish one or two more papers before I ship to basic as I wish to apply to be an instructor at West Point in the future. I imagine it will be difficult to conduct research while active duty.

As for hobbies, almost all of my free time is spent training BJJ or Muay Thai. I try to train at least 8-10 hours per week. I also run and do calisthenics two to three times per week to increase my max number of pushups, situps, and decrease my runtime. I also like to read and am currently teaching myself Latin.

As far as research for Special Forces goes, I have read Get Selected by LTC Joseph Martin and have read through much of this site. It will be about 3 years before I can even attend SFAS so I am much more concerned about doing well at OCS so that I can branch Infantry.

If any of you wish to reach out or have any advice for me (whether you be SF or not) I encourage you to me a PM. This is the main reason why I am posting in the first place.

Very Respectfully,
Paul

Hello,
I have been following this site a few years now. I felt it was time to introduce myself. I am a retired 18E looking to connect with other likeminded individuals and have polite discussion on variety of topics of interest.
