|Yeah, I know, there are probably 100 threads on this topic made by me in the past. I think I'm mildy retarded, or just plain dumb :).
Anyway, I'm sure most of you get tired of my ongoing saga trying to find an SOF route for me. You probably hate me for it. But, I have no where else to go to ask advice, as I don't trust recruiters and don't know any SOF guys around Alabama :).
So, as I've matured and gotten serious about this goal, I've realized what is a reasonable goal, and what goals should be marked off the list. I wanna have a home life, and most active duty SOF units don't really provide for that...or make it difficult. So, I still wanna be a police officer and eventually work my way to SWAT. But, I know the ARNG has an SF route, where I would train monthly and do a Summer train up kind of thing. That would work great for my goals, and actually be very realistic and more doable/better for me. So, my questions:
1) What is the route? How do I go about doing this? Can someone please outline the process for this, I mean do I basically go 18x then after the SF Pipeline go into an ARNG unit?
2) How often would I train?
3) How long is the pipeline? 2 years? I plan to do this after I graduate this year, then go to college after the pipeline.
