I was scrolling through social media today and came across the AFSOC page and they highlighted the late Lt. Col Shroeders memorial at Arlington. Let me just say first, there are no words to accurately say how sorry I am. This is still very new but I wanted to show respect to his family and of course, Lt. Col Shroeder.
When looking at the photo, I noticed a captain with a grey beret. This brings me to many questions but primarily, how? I thought the 15wx(c), AFSC was obsolete. Are these personnel who were grandfathered in? I also came across this article and it depicts the pipeline for a weather officer who will attend special operations training. https://bootcampmilitaryfitnessinstitute...ction-training/
I am currently working on a bachelors in meteorology through Mississippi state university and they have an AFROTC program. I intend on applying to POC ERP and graduating/commissioning. If I can pursue weather officer and get special operations training, I very much would love to do that but it is very conflicting when I read that it is obsolete but see there are personnel who are doing what I want to do.
For anyone who can provide info, I thank you. I was also reading the CFETP for 15wx and in it, it says that in 2015 it has been phased out. I just don't know what the actual process is for current day pursuit of being an officer with a grey beret.
