PSYOP broad question

Hello! I leave July 30th for Leonard Wood to start the training pipeline for 37F. Iíve had many questions about the job as far as what PSYOP actually does, and what the training entails, and if there are opportunities for CQB training and so on, eventually would like to go for SF, just hard to find answers in this field. Thank you!

You can start by following instructions, something your drill sergeants will expect, and complete your introduction as per your invite email. You have a long way to go before you should worry about CQB.

Welcome to SOCNET.

What in the actual fuck? You took a job you know nothing about? I guess 88M was full?

From about six months in 7th Psyops Group (USAR),
it's marketing--attempting to modify the target
audience's attitude/perception--to accomplish or
facilitate accomplishing our goals/objectives.

Major CQB opportunities would probably involve
balky printers, or loading powerpoints from
thumbdrives.

I would not call that a fair rollup at all.

PSYOP is extremely broad, it is not limited to "just marketing" I would recommend downloading and reading through the PSYOP FMs (3-05.301 and 3-05.302) as well as multiple other SOF ADRPs.

The cool thing about PSYOP is you are only limited by your imagination. Get out of the box and stretch your legs a little. There is no "set" way to do PSYOP, which is one of the struggles of the community.

CQB is in abundance IF you go tactical PSYOP. There is actually a tactical detachment dedicated to deploying with the 75th RGR Regt. So the opportunities are there.

Thank you

I knew of PSYOP having a tactical and ďmarketingĒ aspect of it, and the overall objective. Thank you for clarifying about the tactical side deploying with the 75th. I was only interested in knowing how much potential there is for combat, and the tactical side clears that up for me, thank you!

But these jobs are for highly disciplined troops that can follow instructions, which you obviously cannot. Do not post again until you post your introduction here. or the only aircraft you will deal with is a Black Chinook.

I guess I’ve been reading this site too long. The first question about PYSOP is...

No one asks questions about PYSOP.
