Hey everyone,

My name is AJ and I'm a Navy veteran. Served on the USS Columbus, SSN 762 out of Pearl Harbor from 98-02. Was also a diver from class 000-20- Scuba, not to be confused with the diver rating. I've been reading and looking for information regarding the National Guard and also SF. We'll see if I can get into the Guard, and if so I'll try to get this thing rolling.

Have a good one gents,

AJ

Introduction

Hello all,
I'm a Junior in college majoring in International Relations and I'm planning on complementing it with studies in Asian Affairs. It has been my dream to serve in Army Special Forces since I was in High School. I've done a lot of research over the past couple of years (you can never learn enough!) which has inspired me even more to one day reach my aspirations.

Zonie Diver's quote about "the calling" really hit home for me because I have those same feelings. I want to serve my country and help the less privileged people around the world while helping fight our enemies. It is no doubt a long and difficult path, but I can't see myself doing anything else in life.

I've spoken to a QP in the 19th SFG who recommended that I join through the Rep-63 Program because of the extra preparation the NG offers. I'm seriously considering it for the future, but right now I'm focusing on my "25m target" of graduating college and maintaining a high GPA. And of course to do PT. I still have about two years to prepare for SFAS.

I am originally from Auburn, Indiana and attended USMA (c/o 2011). Before my final year, I was able to attend class 09-10 and was selected, but am waiting until I am eligible to attend the Q Course. I studied Chemical Engineering and rock climbed competitively for three years during college. I am currently an Infantry PL in the 101st ABN deployed to Khowst, AFG. One of my NCOs told me about this site as a resource for constructing an antenna. I'm so glad that he did; the wealth of knowledge here is astounding.

I am a young man from the MA who grew up with a few QPs. The vast amount of knowledge and life experiences shared with me has had a profound effect on the person I have become today. I just want to thank all the QPs here for their previous or continuing service to our country and for taking time to run this forum. The information provided here is priceless to young men seeking the ultimate “Goal”. I am glad to be a fly on the wall.

I've been a member of this forum and used it as a resource for almost two years. I received a Bachelor's degree in 2008, am nearly 27 years old, and will soon ship on an 18x contract.

Thank you for the site; I will continue seeing and not be heard.

Good evening gentlemen,

I have been a Marine infantryman for 15 years. I had set up an account months ago but op tempo always dictates what our down time is used for. I have viewed several post and have gained better insight to your community. I appreciate the skill and mind set this community offers. When I was a young jarhead I had considered cross decking to the Army because of this community but chose to stay because I enjoy the mission I had as an infantry squad leader. I hope to absorb some useful knowledge here and will respect the opportunity I am given to be on this sight.

Hello,

My name is Luke. I have no past military experience. I live in the Northeastern United States. I came across this site while searching for 18x contract and SFAS information, and have found it to be tremendously useful.

Name is Patrick. Been in the AF for almost 8 years. Went to Afghanistan in 2011 and have had the itch to do more with my career since. Have done a lot of reading and research and I believe being a special forces soldier is exactly what I want to do.
