Hey there, I will be joining the Army in a few days and was thinking about becoming a NBC Operations Specialist, if anybody here has any experience in this field could you tell me about it? I'm looking to see what duties are involved, what the length of training is, and what sort of cool toys you get to play with! Everybody have a Merry Christmas and an especially happy New Year!

I was an airframe repairman 68G. Any of the 68 series (airframe, powerplant, hydraulics, etc) help towards getting a FAA mechanics license. It is true for the 67 series aircraft maintenance (crew chief) as well. You cannot go wrong with infantry or armor MOS’s.

Dude, what are you thinking brother? Why are you going to join the Army? Take some advice from someone who made that mistake and join the Chair Force. I was a 19k armor crewman, and we had to do alot of NBC crap and it's mighty lame. The Air Force takes real good care of their people. They have a rule about minimum space allowed for single airman in the barracks, if they don't meet the minimum they get paid extra. They also have many more fields geared toward jobs you can use in the real world. I mean what the hell am I going to do as an X tanker. Don't go combat arms, aquire a skill you can use outside the military. Because even if you retire eventually you will be back out here with us. Don't regret serving my coutry, I just wish I would have done things a little different. ALWAYS REMEMBER "THAT WHICH IS COVER FOR 5.56 IS MERELY CONCEALMENT FOR 7.62!"

If you really have your heart set on NBC... Air Force. Same training, newer equipment, better life.

ohh don't let them talk you outta the army, my only suggestion is that if you want a combat arms job that has a future afterwards, go with light infantry and then try for rangers or special forces. they get jobs thrown at them left and right after they have been in for a while. after your a few tours in sf or rangers either go to ocs and make a career out of it or go to the civilian sector and get a job as a military consultant or teach tactical course. the executive security buisness is always looking for true professionsals. if you make it through the asvab and meps it only goes down hill from there(snicker snicker laugh laugh). the army truly can be a great career choice.
