Enlistment options change on almost a daily basis. When my son was in the enlistment process his Recruiter suggested 18X. He came back a few days later & said 18X was no longer an option. At that time the only way to get into SF was to apply after you were in for a while & go to selection & they preferred NCOs. During my early years in the Army SF volunteers were sought mainly as a reenlistment option & you had to be at least a SGT.

Who's to say the 20 year olds aren't going directly from H.S.?
