the Support slices does just that, support the door kickers. They pack chutes, make commo, analyse intel, maintain vehicles, etc. Currently in the GWOT they are going outside the wire and doing things, but they are not primarily shooters. They worry about the details so the team guys can do their thing without attending to minute details.
Are the support units for SOF any more selective than their non-SOF counterparts?
Ravage, keep in mind that "SF" is different that "SOF." SOF is an all-encompasing term, while SF refers to a specific qualification, and a subset of SOF.
Unless you are in weapon's squad. :doh: :doh: :doh:not everyone in ranger batt is v qualified, majority are (aside from the pv2/pfc's.) Guys get sent usually when theyre e-2's or 3's and in a perfect world take a fire team when they return (not always though);
