SFC (Join to see) , I know a few Soldiers that are interested in becoming SF Operators. For some reason, they always come to me asking what the process is for going thru Selection and what not (even though there is not one single piece of SF identifier anywhere on my uniform). The basic questions I get are: What is Selection like? What is the minimum rank required? What happens if they fail Selection? How long are the courses? Physical requirements? I even had one Soldier ask me how long is it before they are on an operational team. Any and all advice and guidance I can give to help the Soldiers make better decisions would be greatly appreciated. Also, what exactly is the 18X program and what does that program entail?
