My names Brian, I'm currently 18 and a fire fighter/student. I was getting ready to leave for BUD/S(Navy Seals) when I found out that being color deficient(partially color blind) knocks me out of being able to do that. Just trying to find out if I would be allowed to get into any special forces through the army, or if I would be disqualified again.
I was accepted into the Army SF assessment even though I'm color blind. Here's where I learned that there are many more color tests than just picking numbers out of circles. I did them all. Your choices of jobs in SF are limited though. I was accepted as a weapons sergeant at the time. That was a while ago, but I doubt things have changed. Obviously from my profile I didn't make it past phase I out of III phases after two tries, but I believe I still did a good job. Not having an infantry back ground can make it tough. The course is no joke. Ahh the things that coulda been. Contact me with any questions. Good luck.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Jayzun,
I was one of the "SF babies" 1967. I had an Infantry MOS when I got to training group. I would say only about 25% or even less had an infantry background. While 11B was an asset, most of us ended up doing pretty well. The classroom was where most flunked out.
