原文:

The USAF has created a new single-entry program for recruits interested in special warfare careers to earlier identify candidates who may have the aptitude and skills to become a battlefield airman.

Beginning in April, selected special warfare candidates within basic military training will enter Air Education and Training Command's new Special Warfare Operator Enlistment Vectoring program, or SWOE-V, the service announced Feb. 21.

That means recruits on the path to become combat controllers, pararescue, Tactical Air Control Party, or special reconnaissance airmen will converge under the 9T500 Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC). This is a change from assigning airmen to specialties before they can make a competent decision about their career choice.

中譯:

美國空軍最近為有志於特戰職涯的新兵,推出一個全新「單一入營管道」方案,先期確認具備空軍特戰兵性向及技能的人選。

該軍種在2月21日宣布,此方案會在今年4月開始實施,從基本軍事訓練(入伍訓)挑選出的空軍特戰兵人選,將進入空軍教育與訓練指揮部,接受新式特戰兵入伍導向訓練。

也就是說,進入此一管道的新兵,將成為戰鬥管制員、空中救護員、戰術空軍管制員或空軍特戰偵查員,而且全部適用9T500空軍專長號碼。這個改變不同於以往之處,就是不會在空軍士兵還未能夠做出恰如其分的職涯選擇前,就賦予他們專長。
