Old Guy's Introduction!


May 4, 2020
Hello everyone.

I'll try to keep this brief. I'm an "older" guy at 34 years old. I have never served, though I always wanted to. Took losing 110lbs to even become eligible. I've spent the last 8 years working in Corrections. Made it through selection for the department tactical team, which I've done for a few years now. Still regret having never joined up and think I need to do it while I still can. People think I'm crazy, but I know I need to do it.

My wife and I have a good foundation and I've got a good career where I live, so I'm not looking to move somewhere else permanently. My job is also very secure and very accommodating for military. I've got my eye on the 19th Special Forces Group out of Utah as its a short distance away and offers at minimum Airborne Support positions. I would love nothing more than be a part of the Special Forces mission as a Green Beret. I'm here looking for research and input on making this happen.
