I'm a Zero9L, the job is very easy and I love to do what I do. I was trying to join the Marine corps, but I couldn't make it because I pass the age of been a marine. Now I'm serving in army as zero9L. I love my job when I'm Deployed because I will be working with very educated officer and I don't have to worry about non commission officers mess up language. However, I hate my job sometime when I come home for rest, because I have to deal with some stupide fucks every day. This is the only reason I"m getting out next year. I hope this help some of you want to join this MOS. Plus the army don't need Arabic speakers or any other languages now accept pashto/Dari.
