- I am a 19D. I graduated OSUT at Fort, Knox on Mar. 17, 2011. I am in the SCARNG. I have an outstanding unit and leadership which is a major factor in the Army experience. having been at my unit for a while the knowledge I have gained in being a 19D is extraordinary. I am currently a Bradley Driver which is awesome because I love the Bradley. We are almost always on the range, doing reflexive fire or small unit movemnets, or driving Bardleys and doing gunnery. It is a very demanding job and requires a well rounded person who is capable of quick thinking and fast paced learning. Alot of stamina and enduracnce of the mind a body. Very challenging. But if you are an active person and willing to be a team player and a leader as well as a quick learner, 19D is a great MOS for you.

I would like to see DLC
- I was a 19D when I got out I took other knowledge I had and did worl with HSACs. I do not agree with what DLC has said nor should anyone the whole spur ride and all. BS if you do the job you deserve the name. I really didnt know what to think when I was a scout about how some SGTs believed you weren't a scout until you made E-5 but when you look back blood is the same as per DLC comment if you truely felt that way feel sorry for those below you. A scout being the named came from native americans so if DLC isnt native American than he isn't one either. I believe what makes a scout is and individuals who does his job not for his recognition but for his country. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army_Indian_Scouts Read DLC
- —Guest Scout or Armor Reconnaissance Specialist
- It really depends on where you were stationed. I was stationed in Hawaii and it was cool till the guys from Ft. Gordon showed up and deemed everything had to be done their way no matter how screwed up it was. And went I went to Ft. Bliss you are in the field 20 days a month for 12 months then you deploy so if you are married you might as well file for divorce now. I really wish someone would have warned me prior. As a result I dropped a Green to Gold Packet to escape Bliss and now I am a cadet and I have never been happier. If you want a job where you see your family or do not like having to be involved in the "Good ol boy club" to get ahead then this MOS is not for you.

19D Cav Scout
- Loved being a Scout! Best damned MOS in the Army, bar none. I also got to go to sniper school at Benning! What other job besides 11B or CMF18 affords you that kind of training and options? None! I didn't want Special Forces training or to be just 11B or 11M, no offense to our pals there, whatsoever. I just knew I wanted to be a Scout because my dad was a Scout and I remember that hat and those golden spurs man...what a sight!

- Served from 76 to 80 in the last of the "OD" Army with Trp C, 1st Sqdn, 26th Cav. Went from gun jeeps to 113's while our support had M48 A5's, two rifle squads and a mortar crew. The field was excellent, rarely saw an officer over rank of captain, and were left pretty much out on our own. Which was just fine with us!

19D Cavalry Scout only after becoming an
- A 19D under the Rank andGrade of SGT/E5 is not a Cavalry SCout. They are actually a Armor Reconnaissance Specialist.

want to go back
- Simple put the single greatest experience of my life. 70 tons of rolling thunder bring the hand of god to the enemy. Sure you have your bad days but that is the same with any job. But when that main gun thunders and the coax clatters you just can't beat it. It's heavy hard work fixing those big bastards but why walk and carry you weapon when you can have your weapon carry you. 19k20r4

19 Delta Cavalry Scout
- The work is hard, the pay ain't all that great, the hours long, and the experience's...... unforgettable, nothing has been more rewarding in my life then joining the Cavalry. Nowhere else will you ever get the same opportunities as you do as a Scout. The history is rich and the work is rewarding, it is what you make it, don't ever let the nay sayers disway you they are the ones that probably hated ever joining just mantain a positive additude and you will never regret joining the Cavalry. - 1st AD, 1-1 Cav, B-Troop, Ft.
