Hello, I am currently an infantryman in the Army and had an interest in TACP prior to enlisting in the Army. Long story short, I ended up in 1st Cav and am thoroughly displeased with it. The JTAC itch is still real. I was wondering if anyone had any information on how hard it would be for a prior service guy to land a TACP contract.

I've been out of the Army 4 years and just got a contract for TACP. The recruiter wouldn't even bother with me until I passed the PT test(PAST). It's hard AF to get into USAF let alone as a TACP. They only have x amount of slots for the year and they fill up fast. The only thing USAF has open year round of PJ and sometimes CCT. Hope this helps...
Make the bad men go boom.

A service transfer is a personnel action of switching current branch (Army, Air Force, Navy, USMC, Coast Guard) to a different branch of service with no break in current enlistment. This differs considerably from attempting to obtain a prior service enlistment after current enlistment ends with a discharge/separation from military service. A prior service enlistment is not a transfer.
