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.
