FORT CARSON, Colo. — The 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) is home to the Special Operations Advanced Mountaineering School, a seven-week course which trains special operations personnel to survive in and move through mountainous terrain during military operations.

The course is conducted multiple times throughout the year, giving ample time to prepare for the training. The Soldiers who graduate will have the ability to serve as their unit’s subject matter expert in tactical military operations in mountainous terrain, conduct pack animal operations and have the ability to certify basic mountaineers for attendance of future iterations of the senior course.

This is just one of the many advanced skills taught in special operations units. Soldiers who are up for the challenge should contact the Special Operations Recruiting Team Fort Carson.

While there is no obligation when talking to a recruiter, they can help other Soldiers achieve their career goals.

Visit the Special Operations Recruiting Team by stopping by 1853 O’Connell Blvd., building 1042, room 143. Call 719-524-1461/1462 or text “CARS07” to 462769 for more information.
