A NOTE TO VISITORS

While the Air Force Special Tactics community encompasses Combat Controllers, Special Reconnaissance, Pararescue, and Tactical Air Control Party, Airmen interested in those enlisted specialties must apply through the Air Force Special Warfare pipeline first, Visit Airforce.com/SpecialWarfare for info and to find a recruiter.

The 24th Special Operations Wing hosts applications for Special Tactics Officers, ST TACP Officers, ST TACP enlisted, and Special Operations Surgical Team members.

Training recommendations and resources are also found on this page. It is strongly recommended that you train extensively before you enter the “training pipeline” to become a Special Tactics operator or Special Operations Surgical Team member.
