Just came off active duty and looking to get into a PSYOP unit in reserves but cannot find solid information as to whether or not I'd get to do "sexy hooah" things with Reserve PSYOP. Any info is appreciated, thank you!

USACAPOC is not a SOF unit. They may work with SOF occasionally, in the event they and a SOF element are in the same area and they desire to work together.

It all depends on what you classify as “sexy hooah things”. The reserve component is predominantly comprised of Tactical PSYOP Companies. I’m currently assigned to an airborne TPC and about to go on an ADOS tour to SWCS. We get lots of field time and consistently conduct airborne operations. I imagine that would meet your expectations.

Understand that there is now a difference between Reserve and RA PSYOP, one that didn’t exist a little over a decade ago. RA is part of the SOF community and the Reserve component is doctrinally aligned to support conventional forces. Obviously as an airborne unit we would be among those designated to support units like 4-25, 173rd, or the 82nd should they go to JRTC or receive a real-world mission requiring jumps. The other question is whether or not you would remain a 35 or become a 37.

I have a psyop unit here that is ABN! so, yes, you can do sexy hooah things in the reserve too. Where do you want to drill/ where are you going after you get off AD?
