Being "Motivated, professional, disciplined" and "knowing" thr right people doesn't seem to have stood for much from what I've seen. I had 3 guys that came in with me who went on the CSOR ISAP after a few months in battalion. All they had to do was put in a memo basically. All came back, 1 injured, 1 phobia test failure, and the other withdrew.RCR Grunt said:It's all in who you know ... get to the unit at the right time, do the right things, meet the right people and you can really go places. I know young privates that were snipers in the sniper cell with less than a year in battalion. It is feasible that a young go getter posted to the third could get his recce and para course before the 2 year mark, and these are precisely the kind of people CSOR wants to
stealrecruit from the line units. Motivated, professional, disciplined soldiers.
I have an unclassified memo here somewhere that more or less spells out CSOR wants it's feeder units to be more willing to give up troops or something or other. I'll try and find it.St. Micheals Medical Team said:Dirty Dog,
What are you trying to say?
Hatchet Man said:Curious cause its the weekend, and their recruiters won't be answering any email/phone calls, but does anyone here know if there are any real hard reasons why or if your CofC can **** can your application.
RCDcpl said:Can they can your application? Absolutely. Why? For pretty much any reason they want.
I've seen guys applications get canned for reasons such as, they are pumps, they are not liked by the CoC, and more commonly....the application sits on a desk forever lost in purgatory.
