Airborne Slot

Post by newsoldier »

Rangers,

Is it possible to obtain a slot at Airborne school after completing basic training only? I will have to wait for about 4 months or so between basic training and attending OCS (TXANG program) and then branching infantry. It is my understanding that there is no option for OCS with Airborne (or so I was told ) and that I should have the opportunity for Airborne (as well as Ranger School) upon successful completion of OCS and IOBC.
I was hoping that I could maybe volunteer for an Airborne slot during basic training. I would like to say thanks in advance for any information.

I believe I have found the answer to my previously posted question - I am pushing now for not being more in-depth in my search.
