It's not all bad
- If you're in tech school or considering the job here are some things to know: some of the places you work at will suck...at first. but this is where you learn the job..then learn how to poise yourself for selection to special units, assignments and special duties. Bust your ass and be a dependable 2T2 and your options are open. If you want to sit around and get paid to do nothing or go to the gym..go elsewhere. This job isn't for you.

Not a bad job if you like being outside
- I was a 2T2 for 7 years, the job isn't bad if you're looking for grunt work. Sometimes you're in the office but a good chunk of the time is spent bustin your butt outside. If you're lazy pick a different job. The cool thing about this job is that you have the potential to go TDY to other duty stations for inspections and to help them out which lets you see a lot more places than just where you're stationed. Just like anything in the military your experience may vary depending on your base and your chain of command. A bad chain of command can sour any experience. This job deploys ALOT so if you want to see the desert this is the job for you.

this afsc sucks
- Do not do it!!! It is repetitive and you have to do everything (other AFSCs) when you deploy. I am at Mcguire afb and we work long hours, miss holidays, get leave denied, and suffer from terrible leadership. Try another AFSC.

DONT DO IT
- If you're thinking of signing up as a 2T2 listen to my story. I signed on as a 2T2 because I was sold by all the travel stories. So far the only two places I've been is Dover and the AOR. I have worked over three years continuously on 12 hour shifts in my four and a half years, mgmt decided for me that I shouldn't go officer, I have never TDY'd anywhere, I deploy EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR, am treated like a criminal, worked like a slave, constantly demeaned by superiors, have been unable to attend school because of long shifts, am constantly denied leave (and I do mean that, it has been denied about 80% of the time) and am constantly brought in on days off. I have gotten three holidays off during my career, one fourth of July, one New Years, and one Thanksgiving because it was literally the day I got back from war. My supervisors don't care about my health or well-being, they don't care about morale, all they care is that I work. Be careful if you're considering this career field.

A USAF career is what you make of it!
- To all, No matter what career you decide to embark on, the 2T2 careerfield is one that will offer many locations as well as travel opportunities. If you take advantage of school while you are in, I challenge you to become an LRO (Logistics Readiness Officer), if you want to stay enlisted, there are many opportunities after retirement as well. I have spent almost 18 years in, started my career off at Charleston AFB, on to Kadena AB Okinawa, Ramstein AB Germany, McGuire AFB NJ (AMOG), back to Ramstein, back to McGuire (CRW), off to Kunsan for a year and now at HQ AMC. Over the course of the almost 18 years I have had the opporutnity to travel all over the globe in support of exercises, humanitarian and combat operations. I have loved my job as a 605/2T2 (Port Dawg). - Best Regards, Port Dawg

- I've researched plenty on this job and I have to say I'm excited but still in the dark about what life is like in this profession. I would like to hear more personal stories and experiences about this job. Like sightseeing or certain things that happen behind the scenes. Thank you whoever shares with us. I will for sure come back and share my experiences.

- I enlisted under this job and personally look forward to being able to do it. Being a reservist, I plan on trying to be as active as possible and traveling wherever I can.

Last response correction
- Tech school is still 29 days. Sorry, I got mixed messages from my sources at my base. But it's no longer in Lackland. It's at Fort Lee in Virginia now.

Tech school length
- Tech school is actually 39 days now, not 29. Just found out today. Maybe someone should update this.

Just signed on
- I signed on last week and this is my job. Sounds pretty decent to me! I leave for basic in January hopefully. I'm excited and I think I made the right choice with it.

- Absolutely loved this career field. I retired in 2000 after 20+ good years. Heck, there were times I would have paid the Air Force to let me do the things they let me do. To be in parts of the world, seeing tourists who were paying thousands of dollars to be there...but being paid to be there...wow! From Super Port to MAPS/CMB, to Logair and back around again, there wasn't a job I didn't like. For those of you complaining about the job, and disrespecting those who liked the job, find something better...if you can. After retirement, I took a different career path, because I knew the civilian counterpart to a 605/2T2 wouldn't even be able to compare.

- Loved the Job - did not select it when I first enlisted in '87 but fell in love with it; especially after serving in 8th MAPS, Clark Air Base Philippines, after that stayed in mobile aerial ports deployed 260 days a year around the world for the last 6 years of a 10 year active career-if not for young children at the time would have stayed for 20. After leaving Active Duty continued to do it in the Reserves until I hit 22 years total then transferred to the Navy Reserves to be a Supply Corps Officer (where I continue to serve). Our motto in the MAPS "Work Hard/Play Harder" This job helped me see the world in more ways than 1 - will always be a "Port Dawg" and proud of it - best memories of my military career!!!
