"I'm not sure what his MOS is but anything along the lines of SF will require a lot more training after ITB. MARSOC (Marine Corps Special Forces) has a seven month course alone. I believe it is selected from E-3 and above and is competitive with…"

Thanks for the info.  My son gave me an address, he thought he would be in Delta Company, but I know he started yesterday, so I'm guessing he's in India.  I wonder if I should change the company on the address he gave me?  I already sent him one thing, hopefully he will get it.

 Thank you for writing.. I shouldn't be micro-managing, but who knows what time they have to investigate new cell plans, lol.

 Much appreciated!

Hi. Thanks for the friend request. What company/platoon is your husband in? Which company did he graduate boot camp with?
