Fresh out of AIT as a 68W and my main interest above all is the flight medic program. I was wondering if anyone has any tips or words of wisdom in trying to drop a packet for it.

My unit is doing an NTC rotation in April, then not long after a rotation overseas. Is there anything I could do, even overseas, that could benefit my chances in getting selected once I drop a packet? Thanks for anyone’s time.

Head to your SORB office on Hood, talk to the 160th SOAR recruiter, he can get you the info to submit your packet, attend Green Platoon, SOCM, and then F2 school. They get people straight from AIT sometimes and so on. Be ready to prove you know your stuff though.

You have to have 1yr at least as a 68w before you will even be considered. Take that time to hone your skills and take classes to prep you. If you can get your paramedic license it will help you a lot. Get familiar with A&P, pharmacology etc. Its a ton of info thrown at you very fast. Kinda like drinking water from a fire hose!

You'll need to be at your unit for a year prior to requesting training. You can find the information and requirements on the flight medic school website.
