“Do You Have What It Takes?” Small Team of Airmen ensure Special Tactics growth | DVIDS

Special Tactics career field training pipelines are some of the most physically and psychologically challenging in the Air Force. To ensure the correct individuals are on the battlefield, a group of Special Tactics Airmen weed out the cross-training candidates who don’t meet the high standards, putting them through a week-long selection process to select only the best-qualified individuals.

This team of cadre is known as the Recruitment, Assessment and Selection (RAS) team at the Special Tactics Training Squadron here.
What’s little known is that cadres of the RAS team are from Special Tactics career fields, so they know firsthand what it takes to make it through the training pipelines.
