Forgot to mention..
- a 25N is pretty much the SAME MOS as 25F, just dealing with better equipment. 25F is supposedly a dying MOS. When I went to AIT many people got the opprotunity to change to a 25N. The people who got sent to 2ID in Korea, got a class and reclassed to 25N there.

AIT, srsly? 25F20
- First off, for the couple people that left comments saying that AIT was a prison, and how your PSG (should still be drill instructors anyways) is a complete dick to you, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE THAT WAY. You're still in training, it's the US Army, not preschool. If you expect to be able to go where you want, when you want... you picked the WRONG career field. Anyways, although it's a thinning MOS, my time as a 25F has been awesome. You SHOULD be some kinda Network operator. I've dealt with older systems dealing with PA-1, DNVT/DSVTs, VOIP phones and general Data networks. Like Cisco routers? Hopefully you do. But, that isn't just all the fun, you could also be put in an Air Defense unit. I was. I also did Force Protection, not a single thing to do with anything Signal (minus MBITRs). No matter what MOS you pick, just remember that you will do whatever job your command team tells you to. I've seen signal people who've NEVER work in a signal position. Just something to think about.

- 25U seems like a pointless MOS to me. As direct support (94 series) we basically do all there work for them. They are basically just the middle man from operators to support meaning getting the equipment saying "ok its bad" and taking it to us. You really don't learn much from it other than equipment management. Nothing about radio waves or signals. If you want that become a 29E Electronic Warfare Officer.

- AIT students have to work five days a week, normal army hours (for TRADOC). Your husband should be off "work" around 1700 everyday, unless he's been tasked out to do some extra duty like CQ runner etc. Ft. Gordon is the epitome of what's wrong with the army. There are no drill sergeants to be found and the base is rumored to be modeled after a college environment. Perhaps thats why the above AIT students were having to ask permission to use the bathroom, because there battle buddies act like silly ass college kids instead of soldiers. I think people forgot that they joined the military, even if it is commo you should still act and have the appearance of a soldier, someone tells you to fix something... you should just say "rgr sgt" and move out.

question about a.i.t.
- My husband is fixen to graduate basic at fort jackson,sc and is going to fort gordon,ga. His mos is communications. I was wondering if he would have any time off during ait? We are married with 2 kids and so if he is off any i would like to stay some of the time he is there. We are able to afford it, so would it be worth us staying?

AIT at Ft. Gordon
- Ok. This job honestly rocks and I love it to death. I have fun everyday I do my job. Here is the bad part though. Ft Gordon has gone to hell. Expect to show up and be treated like a 4 year old. I honestly asked a NCO did I need his permission to take a piss one day. You are controlled tightly throughout the week and then loosely on weekend and once you get off post you see a lot of soldiers start to get into trouble. Beyond that the base is hot all year round and they treat AIT students like dirt. You will be not allowed to visit most places on post and your going to feel like prisoners have more rights then you. Let me explain something about Platoon Sergeants. Ok your drill sergeants are top notch thats why they are who they are. Platoon Sergeants are just plain wierd. You'll find some that really know their stuff and want to help soldiers. You'll also find the ones that the army just doesn't know what to do with them after 18 years time and service and they are complete jerks .

25U: A big deal?
- I'm just now enlisting in the National Guard. My recruiter set me up with 25U at my boyfriend's unit, agreement being nothing personal. The way he put it I would be a big deal at the unit (being 1 of possibly 2 communications MOS's there). Is that really how it is? or was he making a big deal to make me want to do it? I'm really nervous, because while i'm good at computers, I'm not good at explaining things to people...

25V ... (Old 84B)
- I was a combat photographr (still) with 84b MOS in Vietnam (66-67). I think it's now 25V. If I could do it again I'd certainly choose a 25V and BEG to be assigned 55th at Ft Meade

25S SATCOM Systems Operator/Maintainer
- Definitely a great mos to have. It's surprising how diverse you must be to be a Sierra. I'm about to graduate from Vincent Hall and go to airborne school in a few weeks. The TACSAT side is very fun. Breaking down and setting up terminals is easier than most people might think. Very hands on. Strategic is alot easier. Chairborne hooah lol. Right now it's 14 weeks for common core and 9 weeks for Strat. 23 weeks total. 11 weeks for TACSAT. Plus 2 extra weeks for JNN. There used to be a massive holdunder to start common core. I had to wait 3 1/2 months to start common core. National guard, Reserves, and prior service get priority in starting class. Now there's a HUGE holdover to start TACSAT. they're projecting as much as 12 weeks. (start new classes every 3 weeks). I've been in the army coming on a year now, and TRADOC is still treating me like a child. Battle buddies everywhere! Even to the bathroom. Fort Gordon is definitely the worst place to have AIT. I've hated every minute here.
