Hi, I'm a 17 y/o High School student interested in Army SF!

Hello ShadowSpear!

I made an account here in order to enter the SOF mentor program. With any luck, the information I learn here will help me get where I need to go in the military.

A little about me:
My name's Griff. I'm 17 years old and I currently attend a vocational-technical magnet high school in my area. I have been interested in the military from a young age, but considering I'm nearing adulthood I've decided to put my plans to action. I've already cleared my MEPS physical and I sign my DEP papers this coming Tuesday. Considering my age, I can't go directly into the 18x program. My plan is to join as an 11x (Option 4) to get Airborne school out of the way. I hope to drop my packet for SFAS the minute I become eligible. It's a long shot, but I'm positive that, given time and preparation, I'll be able to make it work just fine. I hope that I will someday find myself among the ranks of the coolest SOF unit in the US Military - the Green Berets.

Thanks for having me!
