just got back from ass-crackistan and i'll be headed to SFAS soon. just wondering if anyone here want's to throw some advice my way. like what i should study up on, what i should be working on physically. also if anyone here has been in SF how's the SF life treat you on deployment/garrison?

SF life is a hell of alot better then regular army. As for SFAS just don't stop putting out. For pt just do normal shit run, and ruck. Alot of the events you can't prepare for you just have to do. So just be in good shape and you should be fine.

you have a date yet for SFAS?

proto 11-09-2010 03:11 PM

no just saw my SF recruiter today. i literally just got back like a 3 week ago so i'm still getting my stuff together, but i'm hoping to get down there asap whie i'm still in such good shape. i hear the SF pipeline is pretty tough i'm gunna go 18B because it falls in with my current MOS 11b

ross123 11-09-2010 04:06 PM

don't think because you are a 11B you need to be a18B.
I was 11B before now I'm a18C. Your passed MOS has nothing to do with what you want to do in group. 1 more thing go to SFAS ASAP before you lose motivation

if you have anymore questions or concerns fell free to ask. im not one of those SF guys that thinks nobody else should be SF. im always up for helping anybody out that needs it.

Clarify to the non knowing guy: SFAS?

ross123 11-09-2010 04:48 PM

its the 3 week special forces selection process. if you get selected you then will start your training. which can last up to 2 years, and in some cases longer

i really like being an 11b mostly i like shooting haha. made it thru sniper school about a year and a half ago and thats what made me motivated for SF. i've been debating on weather i should wait till i get my e5 to go i go to the board next month, would i be better off going as an e5?

ross123 11-09-2010 05:18 PM

i was a E-4 till right before sage. i really don't think it matters between E-4 and E-5 in the course
