Prior Service Special Forces Soldiers

“Getting out”
Many active duty SF Soldiers find it difficult staying full time because of the high OPTEMPO and the strain it can cause on the family and the individual SF Soldier. We understand because many of our Soldiers are prior-service who left active duty but could not truly leave the sense of duty and the Brotherhood behind. Being out and part-timing as a SF Soldier affords many the opportunity to pursue degrees and professional careers while maintaining SF skills, developing new ones and becoming a greater asset to an ODA. Our training opportunities include most of those that can be found on an active duty as well as others types for both the individual and the ODA. Some of our training venues and cadre have received accolades by many throughout the Regiment such as our Special Operations Training Detachment (SOTD) located in Pelham Range, AL which runs 20th Group’s Special Forces Advance Urban Assault Course (SFAUC), Special Operations Target Interdiction Course level II (SOTIC II), Jumpmaster, Advanced Special Operations Courses, and various other courses using cutting edge training facilities and resources. If you have gotten out and miss ‘it’ or are looking to ETS soon, contact us for a phone and/or personal interview with the full time staff. We are looking for members of the SF community that left or will leave the SF Regiment in good standing and are willing to commit some of their time to continue executing the SF mission. Our company is looking for motivated 18 series at or under the grade of O3, CW3 and E8.
