Welcome to the 18A SF Officer Forum of Professional Soldiers ®.
The purpose of this forum is to allow for the free exchange of info between former, current, and future 18s. This is not limited to 18As and prospective 18As because we need for the SF NCOs to contribute and give you their perspectives on 18As. As the only 18A on an ODA, your NCOs and the 180A will make or break you. The intent is that we might share professional and personal experiences for the education of us all, and to explain to those considering a career as an SF Officer what the 18A is responsible for.
The only restrictions on this forum are to respect the QPs and one another, observe OPSEC/PERSEC restrictions, keep it professional, and do not post classified or restricted access material.
Those 18As and prospective 18As who post here reflect on the SF Officer Corps. Consider that before posting anything questionable.
Have a good time, take a little something from here, leave a little something for others.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
