Information Validation for upcoming SFRE

Hello everyone,

I contacted A/5-19th SFG(A) earlier today in regards to the upcoming SFRE on NOV 30th - DEC 2nd 2012 @ Camp SLO. I was only able to talk to a support NCO and he said to just show up with the proper paperwork and equipment. Just trying to make sure I was not given wrong information that there is no "sign up" sheet and just to show up with proper equipment/paperwork.


Thank you.

Taking the SFRE on active duty

Good day. I'd like to preface this by saying that Im active duty, and currently deployed. Normally I'd just pick up the phone and call A 5/19th directly, but because of the aforementioned details thats just a little difficult. I've also emailed a QP with this question but he hasn't gotten back to me yet.

Anyway: How does the NG deal with active duty SFRE participants? The 5/19 SFRE takes place in early December, and I will EAS in July. If I do well at the SFRE, is it simply going to be a matter of "We'll pick you up when you EAS" or am I totally out of luck and have to wait for the next SFRE? I absolutely know this is what I want to do, and Im not opposed to having to do an SFRE twice if necessary. I'd just like to know if that will be the case.

Dear PS,


I enlisted in the CA ARNG as 11B last month and will be shipping off to OSUT in September. I will be going in as E-2.

Is the SFRE held every year?

and according to the website, "SPC and above w/ 2+ years in the military" is one of the requirements to try out. Is this a non-waiverable requirement?



Thank you for your time!

At last count, we have 25 guys in the pipeline at avarious phases. So as of now, we are having SFRE's once a year. At one time, we had them 4 times a year so it flucates based on our needs.

As of now, the TIS is not waiverable but it can change on a case by case basis and that's dependant on the company SGM.

Requesting a little clariffication. Is SFRE once a year for all of California at Camp SLO? or is SFRE once a year and split, one for Northern California at Camp SLO and one for Southern California at Los Alamitos, CA?

Great question. For this calendar year it's once a year for all of California at Camp SLO. FY 2013 is unk if we'll do once a year at decentralized locations or combine it to make it one event.
