MARSOC officer info request....
 
I know a kid in NROTC at Duke, wants some info regarding officer careers in MARSOC. Can anyone here in-the-know throw me a PM so I can link him up with a SME? Thanks.

Doc,
If he's still in college he's got a ways to go. They won't even consider him until he's a Captain or very senior 1st Lt (Captain select). I would advise him to do his PltCmdr time in the infantry as a 2nd/1st Lt then go to one of the Recon Bn's as a PltCmdr or Company XO, S-3A etc.. Any information given now regarding the MARSOC Officer track will likely change in the 5 or so years til he pins on Captain bars. He needs to focus on the 5-10 meter target (graduating school AND passing IOC). Hope this helps.

Thanks. It sounds like this is far more than what he currently knows at any rate. I will pass this on.
