Hi Richard and Pete,

When I enlisted and wanted jump school, my option was "Airborne Unassigned". While in Basic, heard about this new outfit called Special Forces and asked some questions. There was a SF recruiter at Ft. Polk.

I went and talked to the guy -- I believe he was a MSGT -- he told me I needed to have a GED of 115 or above, pass their tests and complete Jump School.

My brass was the crossed rifles of my AIT MOS, 111. Never used my SS# as a ASN. On any document I ever saw in Group, I was always listed as 911.3 -- although my DD-214 shows 91b3s.

Things were changing very quickly in those days.
