OLD VS NFO.
It is. No officer career track though. Their officer leadership are pilots, most often helicopter guys. The Arctic Survival School is honchoed by Huey guys because they all have flown the nuclear security mission up north and been required to qualify at Arctic Survival School earlier in their careers. I met the current O-5 and O-6 leadership from Fairchild when I was up at Eielson and they are Huey guys too. Good dudes.As far as I can tell from my interactions with them, these guys do SERE as their full time gig.
