Re: Officer Assignment Opportunities in Delta Force
I am going back into the Army with an OCS contract...I would like to get branched Infantry, and eventually after serving a year in the grade of Capt., try out for Delta. My question is that since I am 30 right now, I will be approx. 33-34 at that time, is it even feasible for me to try, or is there some age restriction to being selected? Also, it has been a couple years since I was last in the service, but doing the APFT, I consistently score 270-285, so I am still in good physical shape, and I have no doubt that going back into the Army would most likely get me in even better physical condition. Does anyone know if there has been a person that made the Delta selection that was around 34? I'm sorry if these seem like dumb questions, I just can't really find much information. Thank you for any replies.
