Grewing beat me to it. That is an absolutely disgraceful comment to make especially from someone who has little to no military experience. Go and say that to the parents of those three SAS reserve lads who died, but hey its easy to say things from behind a computer screen isnt it?thats what the special forces support group do!, the reserves probably just give blowjobs and load up the choppers.
Firstly there is no time that regulars have to serve before applying for selection they could do it from the day they pass out if they wanted to its just that it will be unlikely they will pass selection without any experience as a soldier.How was that a lack of respect? I never slated the job they do, I never slated anyone in the SAS(R). I never labelled them walts. I merely stated that I don't think it's right that their regular counterparts have to serve their time to be in the SAS but civilians with no military experience can just walk straight into one of the planets most prestigious units. Sure, if they can pass the selection then bloody hell I'd shake their hands. Its not the people I'm criticizing, merely the selection. So take your band wagon and *text deleted* off!
