How does a "reserve" SF group work?

the 20th SFG is part of the National Guard. Do they take a months training and put it into 2 days?

    I assume they work like regular reserves, but with more standards in regards to how physically fit they had to be. They are meant to be reserve to fill up any positions that are short handed in terms of army SOF.

        The skull is known as the totenkopf. Its probably an afrikakorps patch that replaced the swatsika with a totenkopf

        Never mind, its not a afrikankorps logo. It looks similar, but its a palm tree patch with a skull. The USMC has a similar logo.

    you're laboring under the idea that "special forces" means "UBER ELITE UNKILLABLE SUPERMEN" instead of just "gets the shit jobs nobody else wants/jobs we can't trust actual moronic fricking Black folk to do because they are actual moronic fricking Black folk", probably because you yourself are a Black person and anything beyond your comprehension is Literally Superman shit

    I believe they go to the same Q course and schools as full timers to earn the same qualification, then go on part time once they have the long tab and get to their unit. Supposedly plenty of oppo to go on deployments/activations in that world.

      My brother knew a guy who was one and he said it's basically full time even when they're done with intial training. The only real difference is that they weren't assigned to a particular army base. They had orders to live in some city and would work out and train full time, I guess on land the unit leased or something although they would go to normal military bases to do stuff there as well. They did travel a lot for training.

      I wanna say he said they were "stationed" in Austin, TX, but I could be miss remembering. That's where my brother was living at the time so it would make sense. There's also a fair amount of spook stuff in Austin (my brother is a desk jockey type spook).

      Not really. They work like any other Reserve unit, they train and deploy when called up. If you are in a Reserve SF Group, you can also volunteer to deploy in support of other active duty SF Groups on a TDY basis.

    Dont know about the US army, but in the UK the special forces reserve units are pretty much impossible to work around a normal job around them due to the training and deployment expectations. My old boss tried to join the reserve Parachute regiment unit which arent special forces but have a higher standard of training and attendance than most. While he said he was passing everything he needed to do, he couldn't keep up with the time commitment between his normal job and family life.

        I knew one guy who was reserve SF and worked as a defense contractor, he was high speed for sure, had a bunch of active tours under his belt with 3rd Group as I recall. Really cool guy, owned his own security business. Super friendly, definitely kind of a psychopath. He told me “you’re going to love war.” When I was graduating AIT and he was in the WOC course. He was moving to the reserves and went intel when he got tired of the life and wanted the maintained TS clearance. He’s still in as a Warrant I think.

        From what he said the unit was (this was like 2018) comprised of Iraq/Afghanistan SF vets with a touch of high speed national guard guys, they did deploy.

              Iraq had no WMDs and we failed to install a friendly pro-Western democracy. Our forces were largely unsuccessful in containing the insurgency and we were forced to spend large amounts of money buying off Sunni Tribes and making deals with local Shia leaders to leave without the entire thing falling apart. Today Iran has by far the most influence in Iraq and our misadventure there expanded Tehran's influence in the region.

                This is just grasping at straws. Those "WMD" were pathetic left overs more dangerous to iraqis than anybody else, and in no way justified the invasion, which had not even sound geostrategic reasons about oil control, and in the end was more about american hysteria after 9/11 and buttholes wanting to cash in from it.

                You're moving goal post here. Another note: why the frick did iraq have chemical weapons despite supposedly destroying them under "UN" supervision? Seems like saddam was planning to use them later on just like he did a few years prior on the kurds. He didn't have a WMD program, which was main issue rather than him actually having the weapon itself. You're believing media bullshit from that time.

                The bullshit came from the "media" that parrot the claim that they never had WMDs and taking certain context to fit whatever narrative they are trying to portray. Specifically a Anti war narrative. I forgot where it originally came from, but i remember it parroted by the media without much research.

                >in some ways
                In Iraq's case, they weren't supposed to have WMDs in the first place. They supposedly had their "stockpile" destroyed under un supervision.

                Iraq never had Weapons of Mass Destruction that could really threaten its neighbours nevermind Europe or the UK like the propaganda of the era tried to peddle. That's a fact, and the "ackshually they had a few rotting gas bombs and artillery shells" is just cope and butthurt for being the neocon's useful idiots.

                Lets ignore those weapons still had an effect on people despite being old, moron.

                You keep trying to dodge the central point of those "WMD"s in no way being enough to justify the invasion (not to mention the long list of thirdie countries which also had and have those). Specially since both the US and the UK had no idea about it and instead made up a bunch of bullshit about nukes and nervous gas to stir up voters, even forcing their own intelligence agencies to comply and follow the narrative they wanted. Because nobody would have supported it otherwise just because a few left overs from the Iran-Iraq war.

                Still talking unironically about WMDs twenty years after the invasion is fricking moronic. No, the GIs that got poisoned do not count. You got duped, deal with it and move on.

Especially in the 2000s when saddam wanted to get back at the U.S.. aside from that, the most notable one that didn't do the invasion is German and france. Which saddam had contacts with before and was confident in the germans/french not letting America do the invasion. Overall, the prelude of the invasion of iraq was riddled with moronation, especially from germany, france and iraq. If iraq wasn't playing footies with the UN, the U.S. wouldn't have had much justifications. They were also moronic in trusting the germans and french of all people.

                Nah, nothing to do with that. Its mainly the hysteria and the fact that saddam was being shady as frick when it comes to him having a WMD program. Being a madman goes both ways when it comes to deterrence. Either you deter any enemy in the region or the enemy will come to the conclusion that you need to be dealt with fast.

                totally missing the point, the point is Mossad knew about the attacks well and advance and was monitoring the people who did it, but did nothing to warn the US, because they wanted it to happen.

                That's moving the goalposts.
                Almost any reasonable person will understand that Iraq's WMDs did not fit the claims of a working WMD program.
                But what irks me is that "reasonable people" will believe statements like "Iraq had no WMDs" even though they absolutely fricking did. Turdworlders still go "found those WMDs yet?" and yeah we fricking did.
                Sure the mobile labs were Azovstal Cum Pits tier of delusion, but we're not talking about retroactively justifying the Iraq war, just the cold hard fact that WMDs were found and the evil US empire actually hid it instead of taking a victory lap.

                The bullshit came from the "media" that parrot the claim that they never had WMDs and taking certain context to fit whatever narrative they are trying to portray. Specifically a Anti war narrative. I forgot where it originally came from, but i remember it parroted by the media without much research.

                The real "moving the goalposts" is pretending Iraq was about a few WMD chem munitions that almost all countries have in some way, instead of the 24/7 fearmonguering propaganda about Saddam wanting to bring the apocalypse with WMD that was widespread in the US/UK media at the time.
                >we're not talking about retroactively justifying the Iraq war
                That's exactly what people try to do peddling the "ackshually there were WMDs" bullshit. It's just playing semantics to avoid acknowledging that it was all lies.

                As someone old enough to remember what happened, the entire justification of the war was focused on cherry picked (and wrong) information about Saddam's supposed nuclear program.

                They found nothing to support that.

                What they did find was leftover chemical and nerve agents that were supposed to have been disposed of, and that was publicized, but it wasn't the justification for the war so people didn't care.

                So yes they found "WMDs", but not the nuclear ones.

                Doesn't matter. The U.S. original goal wasn't to fight the taliban, but the clients they were protecting. In 2020, the doha agreement pretty much had the taliban agreed to not support al Qaeda anymore and a complete ceasefire/cease of support for the ANA when it comes to air support. The Afghan government lost on their own.
                >Iraq had no WMDs and we failed to install a friendly pro-Western democracy. Our forces were largely unsuccessful in containing the insurgency and we were forced to spend large amounts of money buying off Sunni Tribes and making deals with local Shia leaders to leave without the entire thing falling apart. Today Iran has by far the most influence in Iraq and our misadventure there expanded Tehran's influence in the region.
                Iraq did have WMDs and the iran cope is funny when they INVITED American troops back to the country after asking them to leave in 2010. If iraq was truly an Iranian puppet, they wouldn't be willing to ask for Iran's main enemy to park behind their yard.

      I think it's something like 100 days minimum for 21/23 SAS, and you are expected to deploy at least once a year.

      Basically everyone in it is self employed or unemployed. 21/23 SAS are the only group outside regular army allowed to attend selection for 22. So a fair few guys in the reserves are trying to speed run their way into 22 without ever needing to learn drill or shave.

      Although also quite a lot of climbing instructors, farmers and the like.

      https://i.imgur.com/nhwiMx8.jpg

      the 20th SFG is part of the National Guard. Do they take a months training and put it into 2 days?

      They won't be fully comparable to regular SF. I'm not familiar with them but would imagine they specialise in a narrower range of operations/skills.

      What they represent is a pool of SF capable men who could be made fully competent in a relatively short amount of time through pre deployment training.

    My friend is in the Special Forces reserves in Massachusetts, basically they go through Q course, spend about a year and a half on active duty, and then only get about 20 solid training days a year. When he's not doing that, he works as a tandem skydiver instructor

    To answer OP's question:

    20th SFG has elements in a few different states' NG. The 19th SFG is the other reserve component group which is also NG, no SFG in the army reserves. As with any other MOS or unit, they have to meet the same standards and go through the same training pipelines as their active counterparts.

    I have known people in 20th SFG and have a buddy in the Q course right now who enlisted as an 18X (SF candidate). 20th SFG is made up of guys coming off active duty SFG that want to still serve part time, guys that are already in the guard and go to SFAS and Q-course, as well as people like my friend known as "SF babies" who enlist as 18X. The pipeline for that is infantry OSUT 22 weeks at Benning, then Airborne school, then SFAS, then Q-course, then to your specific unit.

    The training schedules vary from unit to unit but all units will typically do at least a 2 day drill once a month (known as a MUTA 4) but as with other guard units they can do 3 (MUTA 6) or 4 day (MUTA 8) drills on occasion.

    In 20th and 19th SFG I am sure they probably do a little more than the typical 2 or 3 day drill one weekend a month, but they are also frequently going to schools and deploying for foreign internal defense (FID) missions which is one of the original purposes of SF or going on combat deployments.

    I wish I could give more information about it but I never served in an SFG, I was an 11B in the FLARNG for 6 years so like I said I just know people who have been in 20th and got a buddy at the Q-course now.

    I have never heard anything bad about NG SF components, and to the contrary, Bob Keller spoke very highly of his unit in 20th SFG. TLDR Bob was a Ranger pre-9/11 and re-enlisted with an SF contract following 9/11 with the FLARNG going into 20th Group and deployed with them early in GWOT, and said he would put that team against any other SF unit in the army he felt so highly of them. He retired from CAG a few years ago.

      Ran out of room but I believe this was the podcast with Bob Keller where he says 20th SFG was switched on and squared away but he talks about his whole career.

      He's from my hometown here in SWFL and retired to here and runs a training company for civis and local LE, few of my coworkers at my old department had an opportunity to train with him and were very impressed and it was good training. Been a year or so since I watched this video but he may go into more detail about what NG SF is like I just don't remember, and take it with a grain of salt because that was early 00's and a lot can change in 20 years. Hope this helps OP!

        Heck yea homie, FLARNG? I enlisted into the 2/124 scout plt in HHC back in 08 (split op) so when I finished infantry school in 09 we were going straight to pre-deployment and got thrown into D Co., opted to stay in D Co. after deployment. I had nothing but fantastic NCO's and leadership at the platoon level the whole time I was in. My PSG from the scout plt who stayed as our PSG when we got attached to D Co. was muhreen force recon in the 1st gulf war. Super knowledgeable and hard mofo. I think he's an E-9 in the SFAB now. Very fortunate and many fond memories. Got out in 14.

    From talking to the guys from 19th, they train quarterly instead of monthly, and their AT is almost always more than 2 weeks. You are expected to remain physically and tactically fit on your own time. Some of these guys are TX Rangers and so forth.

    High speed natty guard guys are pretty much just full time except they get to pick and choose deployments. There is even a certain type of "rotation rider" who does nothing but bounce from rotation to school house back to rotation so they can just be full time reservists. Like texas has an airborne national guard unit and those guys are all chads who spend 8 months in Kosovo so they dont have to go back to their real jobs, come home do some jumps, go to ntc, hop on another rotation to some shit hole so they can get AD pay, hazard pay, and just hang out and lift weights.
