My name is SGT XXXXXX-XXXXXXXX. I am currently assigned to , Germany. I have been assigned to C co 204 BSB 2/4ID from March 07-Nov08, then 1st Battalion 8th Infantry Regiment 3/4ID from Nov08- July11. I have deployed twice for a total of 25 months, First in Mosul from Dec08 to Feb09 then to Amarah Province from March10 to Feb11. I am wanting to become an SOF Soldier because I want to have a sense of accomplishment in life and want to be challenged in all I do both physically and mentally. I am currenlty working out every day and rucking with a 45 lb ruck on weekends. I am wanting someone to help me out with any suggestions on how to become more physically fit and mentally ready for any upcoming challenges which await me. If I could get a list of reading material to help me along the way I would be greatly appreciate it.
