Question about 18X contract

I want to get an 18X contract and give SFAS my best shot. But I would like to get experience and a college degree first. Right now, I lack the experience and maturity for SF. Anyways, is it possible to join the gaurd or reserves (so I can get a degree and military experience) and when I reenlist as active duty can I get an 18X contract? I was wondering if you could start an 18X at airborne school, because I will have already been through infantry OSUT. I know it would be hard to get a contract after enlisting, because I would have to go through PLDC and all that. Is that possible? Thanks in advance.

18x Contract

I'll save you a tongue lashing... the first thing you need to do is go to the introductions section at the top of the forums page and introduce yourself. Then fill a profile out.

As for your question -I hope Im not stepping on anyone's toes by answering this, but I came in from the National Guard onto Active Duty.

You will not be able to get an 18X contract, that's for initial entry only, so what will happen is you'll have to join the guard, go to school, and after you're ready, talk to your unit about filling out the form 368 which will get you into Active Duty. You'll attend airborne school, PLDC and BNCOC after SFAS. So don't worry to much about that, and just focus on your 25 meter target.

After you get a little time with a rucksack on your back, and a little experiance in your choosen MOS, go talk to your local SF recruiter, and he will set you up.

Leave the spot corrections to the QPs and staff, itsanarmything.

"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
