Let's see; went through the Q in '84 and if I remember correctly, the Army was opening SF up to first timers because they were trying to re-activate 1st SFG(A) at Ft. Lewis, WA.

I had one enlistment under my belt as a leg so at least I brang a little experience with me. The guys that came right off the street? I remember that there was a minority who did quite well and a majority that did terribly. I guess it kind of depended on the maturity and motivation of the individual.

I only regret that I didn't make SF a career. It's something that has no counterpart in the civilian world.
