Upon reenlistment in the Army after a 17 year break in service and a successful private sector career, I had no idea what Special Forces Selection entailed or how to prepare for it other than to be in the best physical shape I could be. Despite this, I set out to join Special Forces at 42, out of a desire to strive for something more, to accomplish something quite difficult, to test myself, to answer the big questions. And I did so out of recognition of a complex problem set and a possible solution, a hard solution requiring incredibly high levels of self-sacrifice and dedication over long periods of time.
