What is life like as an officer in US Army Special Forces? | Quora

You have far fewer options as an officer generally speaking. You don’t get to chose your job in the same way, it’s based on what they need. Also “officer” “office” paperwork. Strategic planning, conveying intent, briefbacks, requisitions etcetera.

E.G. You can enlist and go 18 X-ray program and go right into SFAS after Airborne and OSUT etc.

If you take a commission you will have to serve in another unit until you’re promotable I believe to Captain. You get only 2 years actually serving with an ODA as an officer, as an NCO you can spend well over a decade in group.
