    Might be a stupid question. Like as in background (ethnic and military), education, experience ..?

    It's like something you only see in movies, but it is real

    They don't recruit anyone that has spent more than one hour online in one sitting.

    Are you kidding me? Read a few Seal novels, they talk a lot about a certain NCO. When you read about him, you'll know it's Sticky.

    I think he's up for Delta 2ic next year?

    Delta holds a tryout/selection a couple times a year, anyone is welcome to try out if they meet the medical and other requirements

    I am sorry. I meant anyone in the Army. I know for fact anyone in Army can and probably other branches, im not sure. but you have to be in the military first, not a civilian, sorry if that confused you.

    Get and read the book "Inside Delta Force" by Eric Haney. It's an excellent book, and it gives a detailed insight into the pure hell a candidate goes through before he is even accepted into the training program that will eventually turn him into an Operator.

    no, you said medical and other requirements that is what I was reffering to. I figured you had to be in the military.

    Yeah i heard of it. I'll probably pick it up just because i'm interested in that kind of stuff. Also Black Hawk Down has a lot of Delta information in it, i just never read the book.

    So just curious, does Sticky talk about it or you guys just figured out he was a Delta. I would want to know more :x:

    Delta's have a certain demeanor and subtle jargon. If you know what you're looking for, you can pick it up.

    Join the Army, get a clearance, and attend a briefing. Otherwise bug off.
