    Just a little background information:
    I want to be in the army special forces. I am 18. The age requirement for joining the special forces is 20 (a recruiter told me 21 but the army site said 20:dunno:) This gives me a little problem. I wanted to be in combat arms, but I am hesitant about being an 11b because of the (for lack of a better word) bottom feeders who have nowhere else to go (my father was an 11b, so thats not from personal experience, but from what he has told me). Now I know that if there's a will, there's a waiver. Does anyone know if there is a specific waiver for the special forces age requirement? The recruiter I talked to was not as informed as I hoped he would have been.
    If there is no sort of waiver for age, my next plan would to go 11b - ranger school - and then apply for SF training feel free to critique my plans :)

    You'll be 20 by the time you even make it to sf school.
     
  4. Yeah I don't think you just make it straight to SF out of boot. Gonna take a little while.

    the SF contract didnt have a minimum age before. is this something new? you can do what i did and get 11x with option 40 (Ranger contract) and go to a ranger battalion. you can always apply for SF whenever you want no matter what job you have and what unit your at. they need people bad these days.

    lol stfu you newb. There is a new age restriction for for the 18X contracts and it is around 20 or 21yo. You can waiver if you have something that would be valuable to the unit like say a foreign language capability in Arabic, Farsi etc. You can go ahead and wait till you are old enough to take an 18X contract and most likely fail and then be sent needs of the Army or you can go in 11B, take a stab at RIP maybe then wait till you hit E4 in 2yrs then put in a packet to attend SFAS.
