CSM my question is this what kind of unit is the SFAB? I grew up in the SOF community and know that I will have to come to the regular Army side of the house soon. What makes volunteering worth it over just going to any regular Army unit. I personally think being in this kind of unit would be amazing but my fear is that when I get there I will get very little home time, training opportunities, and I will just be another cog in the system. Please don't miss understand I am not home all day every day where I am now. My training and deployment schedule is tough but leadership makes down time a priority. Every single one of my battles who are in a regular Army unit tell me the exact opposite if they aren't in the field training they are at work until 1800 every day Mon-Friday doing mandatory training or cleaning floors. I guess my only real concern is this what kind of life will I have in this unit will I see my family very little.

Traveling right now. Great questions. I will response more in depth later. The biggest differences I will say now is we gave a screening process, take only volunteers, and we have no borrowed military manpower taskIngs.

I will expound later. Maybe better over the phone; would that work for you?

SPC King,

Sent you a message. I think what would best is to put you in contact with the BDE S6 NCOIC—can you PM me your email or number?. The OPTEMPO May be fast as due to all the training we have to do. I believe your position is not an advisor position. I will have to check.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops. I've got two deployments doing mostly COIST related work and I'd love to get another deployment to Afghanistan to work in an advisory role. In the meantime my braces will leave me less than able to deploy until my DEROS. I probably will volunteer towards the end of my OCONUS tour unless I apply for warrant.

Thank you for sharing this info CSM Lewis!
