I'm a Big Brother and one of the young men I mentored wants to join up.

He's looking at becoming a FF/Paramedic and has gotten a small scholarship for community college, but he really wants to serve.

Since I don't have the answers, I thought I'd ask here:

What are his reserve options? Is 91B still even a reserve MOS in the Army Reserve/NG? His other option I suppose, being in Tucson is going in as a Air Force Reserve or Arizona ANG FF or Medic. Looking at the AF MOS list, I don't see anything aside medical related that isn't something like mental health tech etc.

Little help?

The Army reorganized their MOS numbers last year. 91b dosen't exist any more but there are still field medics in the USAR and NG. The Air Force field medics are the para rescue airmen (PJ's). A trip to the recruiter will answer most of your brother's questions.

If you go here---->www.usparatroopers.org, there are a couple of current recruiters there that can give you options as far as the Army is concerned.

AF doesn't have MOS, they have AFSC (Air Force Specialty Codes). I have a few AF firefighter friends up here at Luke, who happen to just love their jobs.

If he wants to be a medic, first he has to qualify on the ASVAB.

Yes, we still have medics in the Army. It's 91W now, health care specialist. He can do it in the Acitve duty, reserves or the guard.

And yes, I'm a Recruiter.

I don't know if FF is a reserves or NG MOS but as leatherpuke said, there are plenty of openings for 91W in the Reserves and NG(every unit's gotta have 91W's). I heard that sometime in the future they may switch it to 68W or something but it's still 91W as is. It's the MOS that I went with and I don't regret choosing it.

It's a flexible MOS because of the different units you can be placed in and a vital job.
