You’ll need Family NP to be a 66P in the Army books, the Air Force is the only branch who recognizes ACNP. I have two 66Ss who are both ACNPs in the civilian world, but stay on as 66S in the Army so they can play a little. You need to seek out an FST/FRST for decent 66S slots, otherwise you’ll be stuck in a field hospital wasting away. All of my 66Ss contacted me, I don’t contact them. We look for those who want to be on the team, not those who happen to be slotted. Every single person on my team contacted me personally and expressed interest, I have never sought anyone out. The smartest, fittest, hardest working, and most dedicated eventually find their way onto an FRST specifically to deploy to austere environments and do weird things with bearded folk. If that’s what you want, I’d suggest you start shooting out emails. CNN might let you believe all is OK, but I assure you that real world missions are actively going on. I know the next couple of units heading out, I know some need 66Ss, might want to start asking around and jumping into roster slots if you want to get in the fight.
