Appreciate this forum and all of those within.

Going to reintroduce myself.

Posted 6 years ago for the first time here prior to BCT. Went through basic, airborne, SFPC, and SFAS. Unfortunately, I went slightly injured to SFAS after SFPC, but tried my best at selection when I went and was truly humbled by the difficulty of SFAS and was not selected. I am currently still in the Army, but I view that moment as my lowest and most disappointing failure in my Army career.

Since then, I was promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant, buckled down on my studies and fitness, and was accepted into the Active Duty Option for Green to Gold which I am currently in. I am going to take my crack at selection which is a few more years down the road, but I know I need to restart the journey early. Glad to have been mentored prior to SFAS as an E from a few guys on the forum, but looking forward to the future in hopes of being selected as an O. Thanks for providing the wealth of information in this forum.

My name is John. I am a current 18D in 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne). I was infantry in the National Guard, switching to active duty to complete the SF pipeline.

I am a 24 year old civilian currently based out of Fresno, CA. I have been reading and learning from this site for a while until making this account, which was suggested to me by a mentor (may he rest in peace). I am currently in the process of getting an 18x contract and hope to learn as much as I possibly can before shipping out. Thanks to everyone who has served, is currently serving, and will serve.

Good luck

Trying out at a Officer during SFAS and the pipeline brings whole new challenges from being enlisted. Better have Land Nav and Operations Orders mastered so you can teach them right from the start.
