Pros: Great experience, team oriented, excellent skills learned for civilian jobs.

Cons: N/A


This is an exciting MOS that I wouldn’t think about trading. There’s so much you can use when transferring to the civilian world. If you don’t mind going in head first of course. You get the opportunity to work with the army’s most known weapons. You get to work along side with the best friends that you will ever make, you’ll never be able to trust anyone as much as you trust the people in your company. The training is extensive, day, night, rain or shine. There’s no boundaries to what you can accomplish with this MOS. highly recommended for sure!!
