Artillery, preferably MLRS (13M.)

Grunt... I have the utmost respect for both. Marine Corps? Or Army? Either way, I vote grunt... because those are the guys who make it happen. Bomb an enemy to hell and back... it doesn't matter... the grunt is the only one who can take the ground.

For our sake it sounds like you need to go grunt.

Got that right. Nice load on a nice ride. I got my rating back in '91. Before that, I was Lance nukes. Too bad the Reserves lost their Combat Arms. I was hoping to find a nice MLRS unit once I got off of active. No luck.

Grunt...or one of the other Combat Arms.

I'm thinking a logistics officer might suit you pretty good!

Go 11 series (i.e. grunt)! Try to get as many Hoa schools as possible while you are still young (and your bones heal better). I would recommend getting airborne school guaranteed in your contract, then getting assigned to the 101st. You'd get two out of the way right off the bat. Then once you "make a name for yourself" volunteer for RIP. [8D] If you are not into the Hoa tab-hunter crap, but still want 11 series, get stationed on the DMZ--where the real deal is played out every day. [:(!] Good luck maggot . . . [;D] Just joking with you pal! [:D]

BG, Did you sit down with your recruiter and talk about this? Well, here's a couple of thoughts about considering what MOS to choose... 1) Do you like working in an office, or living in the woods/jungle/desert like a leprous goat? 2) Do you have a knack with machinery, or work better with your hands? 3) Did you want to get a skill that you could use in the civilian world? Or are you looking for more of a challenge? For me, the choice was easy. I've been in Combat Arms units (armor and armored cavalry) my whole career. I love working with my soldiers, going for days on cold coffee and no sleep, and doing tank and Bradley gunnery. Some people don't relate well to that kind of stuff - and there's really nothing wrong with that. So my advice to you is for YOU to think about what YOU want your service to mean for you, and what you'd like to receive in return. A former Sergeant Major (and friend of mine) once said, "the slogan should be changed to 'Be all you WANT to be.' An American soldier can do anything he sets his mind to." I couldn't agree more. By the way, do you know what "ordnance" personnel do? You might want to have your recruiter be a little more specific.
