My son wanted to get Lasik & his type of unit was priority like all Spec Ops units. Each time his number came up he was on deployment so he wound up not getting the operation before he left active duty. Fortunately for him his eyes are pretty good. He can shoot Expert on all weapons & drive without glasses.

It's a matter of being in the right unit at the right time. As of a half a year ago they were pretty backed up at Benning but then again they're pretty much Combat Arms there along with 75th Ranger Regt., 3rd Ranger Batt. & Ranger Training Brigade.
