Hello

First of all, I'd like to thank every one of y'all for the sacrifices you've made for this country.

I am JB, I'm an 18 year old ROTC cadet from South Carolina. I will not lie to you or myself... I don't know jack shit about the Army except for the information I've accumulated over the past 8 months or so. My lack of knowledge and experience is why I've come to this site. I have a lot of questions and, as far as I can tell, this is a great place to learn from knowledgeable, experienced soldiers.

I could tell y'all about how much I aspire to be part of the Army Special Forces someday but those aspirations don't mean jack shit until I progress through my career and put the work in. Right now, all I can do is be a sponge and learn from the experts. I will try to refrain from asking questions that I cannot figure out on my own accord, but sometimes Google isn't trustworthy or relevant.

Thanks for giving me the privilege of speaking with y'all.
-JB

Welcome. Considering you self proclaim to know nothing of the Army, why Army SF?
Solid and relevant question, but to keep the “Intro” area from getting off track into discussions, as a Staff we ask that these threads stay relatively Q&A free...plenty of time for that once the OP creates his first thread.

Thanks much.
