@SOST How would you say SOST and SORT compare?Nothing near as developed or formal unless it is brand new. The army has the GHOST teams but they are not the same. SOST was always pretty good but the level of training and funding sine coming under Special Tactics is night and day. Only thing comparable is the JMAU over at Bragg.
SORT was resuscitation and holding only, no surgical capability. SOST trained with them a few times and was collocates with them in Afghanistan 2008 ish. As far as I know they are still a resuscitation team. The Army GHOST mission would be closer to the SOST mission.Wow that is a lot to take in.

Also, JMAU wasn’t listed in this article I don’t believe, could you shed some light?
Congratulations on the commission. I don’t know if GHOST has any selection process but, if it does, it isn’t as formal or intense as SOST. The GHOST I worked with in Afghanistan had both Active and Reserves.I just got commissioned in the Army as a CRNA. Does the Army GHOST team have a selection process similar to the Air Force’s SOST. Does the GHOST have an active and reserve component? I am familiar with the Air Force SOST based off several conversations with the recruiter but I have never heard of the GHOST unit until now.
My pleasure. We all need short, intermediate and long-term goals, it will be here before you know it. Update us from time to time.Thank you very much for your response. I need a couple years to learn and grow in my unit but being apart of a forward surgical teams is my long term goal
