I enlisted as a 19D end of 2008, and went straight to the 82nd. I was unable to attend Airborne school due to a severe injury to my ankle at the time. I did one humanitarian deployment in 2010 to Haiti with the 82nd. Upon finding out that my unit was deploying to Iraq, I reenlisted for a unit that was deploying to Afghanistan wanting to actually do my job, get combat time, and get hands on experience with my job, and that's where I am now. My goal when I enlisted was going in the MI field, but wanted to get the experience on the ground and combat first, so I could be in the fight and to better understanding for both fields, not just looking at it from one angle. Having the experience and time(currently been a Scout for 3 1/2 years, I want to reclass to 35L. My ETS now put me out of my window until the next window opens (ETS Dec.2014) so I have at least another few months until I can reenlist for the job. I was wondering how difficult the application process and the transition would be for someone in my career field. I have a clean record, one speeding ticket witch I don't believe will hold me back. From my understanding though, getting my S to a TS can be a lengthy process as well. So my end goal is obviously a ways away. But when everything falls in to place and I do become a 35L, what is the likelihood of me working with special operations, and process would I need to go through to accomplish that?(Schools, pocs?) I'm fully healed and ready to do what is needed.
