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

- 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.

- 25r requirements area now 107 in el and Top secret clearance
- —Guest recruit
- Here's a few corrections to things I've read here about the 25S MOS: -You need at least a Secret Clearance -There is no relation between grades and selection for Tac/Strat -Selection for the ASI 1C is more timing than grades. -The ASI 1C requires a Top Secret -AIT is MUCH longer than 15 weeks. Its 15 weeks for Common Core, then additional training for your Strategic or Tactical course track. Plan on spending at least 8 months at Gordon. I spent over a year with the additional 1C training and inactive time. -Going Strategic can hurt your Army career due to the lack of deployments. Don't be dissapointed if you go Tact -You ARE NOT GURANTEED A HIGH PAYING JOB WITH NO COLLEGE AND THIS TRAINING. Its great training and you shouldn't have a difficult time finding employment. I have watched numerous coworkers ETS and only make 50K in the Baltimore/DC area which isn't that much money. Do your college and get your certifications and then you will better prepared for civilian employment.

31R to 25Q to ????
- I haven't worked as a 25Q in years. I've been an S6 for almost 3 yrs. I've been working as a 25B, 25U, 25L, and working on the 25E....Wow...25Q is pretty much pointless. I have been Commo for 12 years and I want to retire as one. Thanks to all who serve.

25M need security clearance?
- I just spoke with my recruiter. I'm aiming for 25m and he told me (and showed me the listing) that for 25m Multimedia illustrator I need a "secret" security clearence. Here in the article it sais security clearence for 25m not needed. Anyone has the correct data?

with 123 Sig Bn, 3rd ID
- I was in the Army from 1968 to 1971. I was trained as a 31M20 @ Ft Gordon Ga. I was sent to the 123 in Germany where I was trained as a O5C. Anyone recognize these?

- Competent 25U's are critical to mission success. I've worked in the same Commo shop for five years now with two different teams on combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and if you are a 25U that isn't interested in learning everything under the sun you will be worthless. Field work and Deployments are challenging and very rewarding. Leaders and subordinates alike will try your patience - in critical times military bearing and discipline will be your best friend. Garrison duty really sucks and the way the military is setup doesn't really grant you ample - 'real life' - experience mostly theory. Expect to hit the ground running during deployments and field problems and possibly learning everything on your own. Expect A LOT of heavy lifting. If you are overweight and aren't a self motivated don't even think about it. Don't expect to be a computer guru as a 25U. Your recruiter is misled. Yes we work with computers but 95% of our job is tactical communications (Radio).
