Former EMT

Was stationed at FE Warren AFB in Wyoming, and later went to Belgium for GLCM. Typical one day on, one day off, with some meetings on off days. Typical days were driving out to remote locations to fix various malfunctioning components. Minimum was about 10 hours, 12 was normal, if you get near 16 then you get to stay the night in a wonderful Missile Alert Facility. Very independent work, with a lot of responsibility. For reference, there was a -C that was for GLCM, Ground Launched Cruise Missiles. Intermediate Range that was stationed all over Europe, INF treaty eliminated this. Select few get the opportunity. Make the best of whatever you choose.

Also there are no UAV's involved. It was talked about for a time that UAV maintenance could have become apart of 2M0X1 but the contract was given to civilian contractors.

ICBM side

There are 2 shreadouts, A and B. MMT (mechanical) is AFSC 2M0X2 and FMT (facilities) is 2M0X3. 2M0X1 (EMT) typically dispatch 12 days a month with one on-base training day. Plenty of family time / time off. 2M0X1 shreadout A is ICBMs, Shreadout B is Cruise Missiles. Dispatching to the Missile Field to perform maintenance was absolutely the best job I have ever had...in the AF or out! Would do it all over again without question.

This AFSC has two seperate systems it works with, Cruise Missiles and ICBMs. The most common bases are Barkesdale AFB, LA and Minot AFB, ND for Cruise missiles and Minot AFB, ND, FE Warren, WY, Malmstrom AFB, MT for ICBMs. If you are lucky you could be one of the few who go to Whiteman AFB, MO or Vandenberg, CA but don't count on it. All other assignments listed here either don't exist anymore or are a single manned position and someone will either die or retire before that slot opens up. This job has an extremely low possibility for deployment. Occasionally there are volunteer opportunities but they are rare. I do not reccomend this AFSC for anyone who enjoys seeing their family or having any kind of personnal time. Most days are at least 12 hours if not more and weekends are never a guarantee.

Join if you DO NOT want to get deployed. Travelling long distances to missile sites in order to troubleshot/repair missile components in missile silo/capsule. Only possible assignments are in WY,ND,MO with possibilities of instructor duties in Vandenberg AFB or Cape Canaveral but spots are extremely limited. Shredouts in ICBM are EMT(electro-mechanical technicians) FMT (facilities maintenance technicians) or MMT (missile maintenance technicians) Job entails 16 hour timeline on work with usually one day on and one day off. A lot of driving involved in all weather conditions. Missiles are a very small community in the AF and is possibly the only non deployable function of the AF, however volunteer opportunities are possible. Top secret clearance required for EMT and MMT. Perfect AFCS for persons wishing not to be deployed and want to live within the 3 states offered.
