Icon5 Is direct commissioning possible?

I am a civilian now, did a 6 year enlistment as a 35 series, and ended up in the 160th due do being awesome. *Be nice today is my birthday*

I am not about that contractor life. I want to go back in as a commissioned officer. I would like to go Special forces and tackle selection. I have had various discriptions of what is possible from HRC, to OCS, the GOarmy recruiters, and even SPC ops recruiters. From what I have read there is nothing spotting me from going direct commission back in. The OCS guidelines even mention AFS but no regulation covers direct commissioning that I could find.

Can someone clear up the confusion? I am highly qualified and I know it is a rarity to want to go back, but still. I want to command, and I want to do swoopy stuff. Whats the real deal?

You are so awesome and qualified that you can't follow instructions. Go post an introduction in the appropriate place as you were instructed when you registered.

Officers need attention to detail.

The way it works here is you post an intro before you start posting. If that doesn't fit your agenda, disappear or somebody will disappear you. Quickly. This isn't facebook, follow the rules or get the fuck out.

Snarky little fuck aren't we? You come here to ask a question that several recruiters have told you the answer to, which you being too special don't/cannot accept, and make snide remarks to folks? Change your ways or bye.

A few things about this site for you (and any other new comer).
1. I noticed your first post. When you post something like you did, any of the moderators, admins, or verified BTDT are going to look at your post and notice it was your first. The rule about posting an intro here is adhered to. I am sure people get away with not doing it once in a while, but they don't do it while posting how great they are.
2. The fact that you admit that you would ignore the rule because you didn't think anyone would notice says a lot about you.
3. You are currently an unknown commodity on this forum. At the same time, if you served where you claim, it is likely that there is a verified member of the forum that either knows you or knows of you. I imagine some of them may be by soon to ask about your credentials. Conduct yourself accordingly.
4. Disrespecting any of the verified BTDTs isn't tolerated.

Less than 2 hours. I'm guessing that's not a record, though.

Nope. Not even close.

BTW, direct commissions are available for Chaplains, JAG, & Medical. My guess would be that as HSLD as he is, none of those fields apply; that he deserved a MI direct commission due to his awesome awesomeness

I don’t think “highly qualified” means what you think it means...

You want to be an O but come here like a twat waffle, insert golf clap here. You’re a Millennial, aren’t you? Wait, don’t answer that, lol, you’re banned

You realize you are dogpiling on a guy that when you clear the dogs away, is no longer under the pile?
