  • Wanting to go LRS in the Guard~

My Father served two tours in a LRRP unit in Vietnam. Im 21 grew up around the army, over 19 family members served and am a vol.firefighter i love the rush but i want more. i have to have a suitability review before i can go to MEPS, and i want to go 11b. I have a ged but the MO guard is working with me. id like to go to college in Pennsylvania or Maryland and join a LRS unit how would i go about this being NPS ? Or after i get my credits would i be able to go AD and apply for The 75th Ranger's ?

    You may be able to ask to be assigned to the unit at MEPS when you sign your contract. If not, you could contact them after you complete training and tryout, if they require a tryout.

            Yeah...be motivated but leave out the "I love the rush" stuff. Be a mature professional.

            You'd have an easier time getting into the 18X feeder program over at 19th SFG in WV than to the MD LRS unit.
            I have over ten years F3EAD SOF support...get the impression that LRS DET is feeling the crunch and and doesn't have many NCO billets - rightfully they want to save those billets for their organic up and comers.
            Can't blame them for that though.

                Google is your friend:

                Special Forces Enlistment Option (MOS 18X) Description:

                Individuals who are non-prior service (NPS), or days of service / prior service (DOS/PS) will enlist under Option 3 (U.S. Army Training of Choice Enlistment Option), MOS 18X, and ship to Fort Benning, GA and follow the training path below:

                (1) Inprocessing through the Reception Battalion at Ft Benning, Georgia.

                (2) OSUT for MOS 11X. Soldiers must achieve an APFT score of 229 with a minimum of 60 points in each event upon completion of OSUT, using the standards for age group 17–21.

                (3) Airborne training.

                (4) The SOPC Course (Fort Bragg, NC). This course is two weeks in duration, consisting of physical conditioning, land navigation, and small unit team building. Individuals must obtain an electrocardiogram (EKG) prior to their arrival at SOPC Course.

                (5) Once Soldiers meet all criteria, they will be scheduled for Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS) (3 weeks, 3 days).

                (6) After successfully completing SFAS, soldiers will be evaluated for placement in the most applicable MOS-specific Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC) from the following MOSs:

                18B—Special Forces Weapons Sergeant
                18C—Special Forces Engineer Sergeant
                18D—Special Forces Medical Sergeant
                18E—Special Forces Communications Sergeant

                Requirements for Initial Accessions into the Army:

                (1) Must be 20 years of age by ship date to CMF 11 One Station Unit Training (OSUT) and have not reached their 30th birthday prior to ship date.

                (2) Qualified for, and volunteer for airborne training (must have airborne stamp on physical).

                (3) High School Diploma Graduate (Tier 1). (HSSR authorized for DEP-In only. Must have high school diploma prior to ship date).

                (5) Must successfully complete all pre-basic training tasks required by the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) prior to ship date. The Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) must be completed within ten days of ship date.
                Individuals will be enlisted in pay grade E–3 (based on HQDA exception for this option). Those individuals who fail to successfully complete any pre-basic training tasks will have their contract renegotiated and only authorized advanced promotion based on provisions of AR 601–210.

                (6) Those individuals already MOS qualified as 11B and airborne qualified, will enlist under option 18 (U.S. Army First Assignment-No Training Enlistment Option) with assignment to Fort Bragg, NC, and once inprocessed will start training with Special Operations Preparatory & Conditioning (SOPC) Course.
