I'm just curious what the SERE-C course is like?
How intense is it? You always hear the stories that they can break one bone and stuff like that. Is that true?

You never hear the truth come from SERE-C. It is a very rewarding course and it is something that will never be forgotten. It is the most professionally run course in the Army. There are other variants in other services, like SV-83 at Fairchild AFB, Washington.

Don't be afraid to volunteer for it. They aren't out to kill you, but specifics you won't find. There is a lot of in-depth training and obviously the evasion and RTL (Resistance Training Lab). They are there to teach you vital skills, not to kill you.

If you are interested, check to see if it is available. Most of the slots go to SF, 160th, etc, but there are always cancellations. If you were on Bragg you could go stand-by. You won't regret it if you do it.

One of the best ways I have heard it described is "The best course that I never want to do again. I learned more about myself than ever."

Yeah, Roger Sarge, they aren't going to kill you, but there are worse things than death. You'll always hear horror stories about SERE, but like Auto-Rotate said you'll never get specifics. However, know this, you will suffer, pain and discomfort will come, you will experience things that are less than pleasing to your 5 senses; I've never been, but I willing to bet you will get your share of the aforementioned guesses, if you will. I'm sure it's a very rewarding course and afterward you are better for the experience...hooah, my hats off to you brother, anyone who volunteers for SERE has got a steel pair. Just by virtue of knowing so little if any information about the school makes it even scarier, it's like this is what I think, I might know, and even that's pushing it. Best of luck to you if you choose to go, maybe you can hit us back with some "specifics"...

What would the chances be for an 88M to go to this course? Just curious as I have wanted to go since I have been in the army!

My husband said it was one of the best courses he EVER attended. I know some general things but it's nothing that will "help" you out - you must be in the "Q" course?? Anyway, good luck, it's gonna be a suckfest, but you'll be proud of yourself once it's over.

Oh! I'm sorry.... I didn't read that you're an 88M; um, I've never heard of anyone that isn't some type of special ops doing that type of school. You could try to go SF and then you'd get a crack at it down the line. Good Luck!

I already tried to go that route. Initially, the sf recruiter loved me; I max my pt test, have a 126 GT, passed the DLAB, and was actively trying to go sf. Unfortunately, for me, I am colorblind! Therefore, I fail the airborne physical meaning no sf. It has screwed me out of a lot of options in the military, oh well, who needs colors anyways?

I am trying to get into SERE C High Risk at Fort Bragg, NC. I am a 21B and am Pathfinder qualified. Is there any way I can get into the course? Or is this only for SF?

I had a friend in Ordnance (then 35E, now 94E?) who got assigned to an Airborne/ SF unit. He went.

I believe that 160th has 1 (one) 88M slot for, I believe, E-6. You would have to be one of the better 88M's out there to get it and you would need a SECRET clearance or higher to get into the unit. So....it is right up there with finding the loch ness monster in your situation.

I've never been. But I have plans going. Going the SF route is not the only way to get a slot in the school. Like they said you can do stand by if your at Bragg, or see if your unit can send you. But also, you can become a Warrant Officer and go the flight route and they get sent to SERE-C. Its mandatory for them to go and pass it. I don't know if they have their own school at Ft. Rucker or if its even the same one that SF does, but from the little facts I can find its just as hard core.



Trust me, I'm a Recruiter!

There is one at rucker, No one can say for sure it's the exact same or not unless you do the both courses. Alot of soldiers say the one at bragg is harder but they haven't done any of them.
