  1. Here's a link to an interesting Army opportunity. I heard that they are going to try and push an additional two classes this year for a total of four.

    Wish this was around years ago. Wish I were once again young enough and strong enough. Good luck to all that have competed or are going to attempt the training. Our troops definitely need you as well as the foreign nationals.

    The class I just went through had soldiers ranging from 21 to 47 years old. There is no age max, but the preferred minimum is 21.

    The additional assessment and selection are tenatively set for Oct 11-20 2011 and Dec 5-14 2011 per ALARACT 041/2011

    This seems like a great advancement opportunity! I wonder how many nurses are involved...

    What kind of training did you go through for the 5 days Scooty Puff?

    The training was very challenging and strenuous. So now's the time to get in shape.

    The truth is always stranger than fiction. You couldn’t invent a more colossal waste of time effort and money.

    I realize a lot of the training is classified. I have my reservation for an upcoming class. What advice could you give?

    Train hard and toughen up your feet, it was tough but it was an awesome experience.

    Cmon Scooty Puff.. What was it really like? Did you get "Selected"?

    EN Med--they will have to have "Training Schedule" & "Packing List" somewhere.

    Are the FET and CST essentially the same except that CST is with Special Forces and Rangers vs. being attached to regular combat arms units like the FET?

    ETA: Edited out personal info, left this question up as there are ways of answering without betraying opsec.
