SPC Kubat, I see that you in the NG and are currently in the DC area... if you are interested in visiting or connecting with the SF NG units in West Virginia or in Rhode Island (2 of the nearest units to you at the moment), just let me know and I can connect you directly. Happy to make the intro.

SFC Callan,

 

Thank you very much. I am working with MAJ Weiss right now to possibly schedule a time for my friend, his family and I to come visit your unit.

That's good.  However, there may also be the option of speaking with B Co, 2/20th SFG(A) in MD.  If you wish to pursue serving in the Regiment and remain in the Guard, the link below is a good starting point.  Best of luck.

SPC,



What you might want to do is look at getting in touch with an SF Recruiter in your area. Here at Fort Riley there is a Team that assists Soldiers in prepping for Selection by getting them ready through, PT, Strengthening and conditioning. The rest is mental. If there is no Recruiter,

http://sofrep.com/special-forces/special-forces-recruiting/ this link should give you what you and your friend are looking for. Here’s a few others for you to consider too. Good luck.

SSG Brown,

 

Thank you for the links, SORB Recruiting was exactly the type of information I was looking for.
