I have a question that I can’t really seem to find an answer for online. For the past couple months I have been dead set in the 18x program. Recently a new guy came into my local mma gym and he happened to be a former Army guy. He had been to sfas but was a 21 day non select. He later gave me some advice... go 68w with option 40 (since my goal is to be an sf medic and later transition to the civilian med feild). He continued to tell me that this would allow me to insure I’d be a medic and I could later go to sfas and I’d be better prepared. To me I feel like I’d be playing into fears of not passing sf selection instead of fully committing to sf. A little background on me is I’m a college grad, 25 years old, and healthy, I’m not looking to make a career in the military but to find my limits/grow and service with those fighting. I really like the work sf does especially the medics. I also would like to go to halo and dive. I think I’d like the rangers and I’d probably have more respect in a sf group if I was a rangers but still can’t find the clarity I need before I sign. What would be your advice/thought?
