[QUOTE=sp.copper]What about in a state where we have Special Forces, but only artillery units, no armor or infantry?
I am leaning towards an aviation officer, but if the opportunity presents and feel I am up to speed at the time, I would seriously consider a special forces officer. Even then, just curious how it would work?[/QUOTE]
You go to selection as a 1LT/junior CPT (ie before you complete a CPTs course & maybe after you finish CO time). You will then complete the MCCC as part of the training pipeline prior to attending the Q.
You cannot go SF from AV. You also cannot maybe kinda sorta thinking about it become an AV officer. To get branched AV, you need an AFAST & Class I physical, plus you need an open slot (fewer avail than SF) which you need to work you butt off to earn. You need to get thru a process of about five interviews starting at a local unit & working up to the SAO.... in short, it's not something you just write on a list & hope for the best.
