Finished up week 6 today. Did a lot of shooting, ran our final 5 miler yesterday and had a 6 mile ruck run for PT today. Final PT(last critical event) is Monday. We also lost 4 more dudes today. 2 of them to injury and were dropped, the other 2 quit...yes, they quit. 81 out of an original 136 remain.

Smash it mate.

Same goes for you CDG!

Enjoying my last few days of freedom with family. Shipping this coming Monday, 2/4. I intend to post updates whenever possible, from Benning to Bragg.

In the meantime, I can't say enough about how much I appreciate this site and the effort you guys have given to help wannabe's like me and the patience you've had to deal with our frequent, and sometimes dumb, questions. Anyways, I'm feeling great and I'm excited about putting myself to the test and seeing what I can do in these next few months.

Take my next PST in two weeks, this one should get me into the draft. I really wish I could have gotten this rolling early, but whatever virus I had really kicked my ass, so I've been working hard to get my act together. Been spending a lot of time in the pool lately. I'll post my scores after the test.

Also, if there are any other EOD prospects on here, racing kitty recommended me a phenomenal book that I would definitely pass on to anyone else interested in becoming a bomb guy/gal or interested EOD in general. Eight Lives Down by Chris Hunter is great.

Wrapped up week 7 today. Passed the final PT test we took on Monday and spent the rest of the week blowing stuff up including some pretty cool non-standard charges. I find out my battalion on Wednesday and don the tan beret Friday.
Congratulations, don't go full stupid over the weekend. You've worked too hard to blow it this close to the end.

Congrats! Finish strong and enjoy what you have worked so hard for.

I had two fun-filled days of in-processing at 1/507 and take my PT test Monday morning. Time to learn how to jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

After you get settled in, send us a copy of your orders, and it will be our great pleasure to hook you up with Verified SOF.

I skimmed back through this thread and I might have to revise my estimate down. I'm not sure that anyone has gone from zero to hero in this thread, the one guy I was thinking of made it through the process before this thread started.

This thread and program were kind of cback0220 's baby though, maybe he or another member have more accurate information.
