Have you ever been assigned to a Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) in MOS 68-- Field Medical ? If so, tell us what it was like. Did you love your job? Did you hate it? What was your average day like? Share Your Experiences
- I am a little confused by the mind of a person who joins the army and thinks he can avoid combat. When your unit deploys you go where you are told. All of the solders in the medical field are a special breed,I know because I was a platoon medic in Vietnam and feel privileged to have served in that capacity.

68 V Respiratory Specialist
- The most difficult and rewarding Enlisted Medical MOS to obtain, so much so that you get an Associates degree after completing this course as well as being able to work in the civilian sector as an RT making $50000.00- $75,000.00 a year depending on where you work. Graduated AIT 2012 currently working as a Civilian RT.

35G/35U ok yes 68A now
- Attended USAMEOS in Aurora, Colorado in 1981 for 35G then 1982 for 35U. Great choice here. Field and Hospital units were in my future. Served in 8th CSH/EVAC and Fort Devans Cutler Army Hospital. Good job while in the service. I got out in 1984 and been in Biomedical Repair since.

was enlisted 68R
- I was in as a 68R and the job consisted of working in Commissaries where food is sold as well as inspecting restaurants that sell or offer food to soldiers on the base. This is quite and interesting career but can become a little constant because there isn't much variety. There is a possibility to deploy and often times you are able to volunteer to assist other units overseas. It is best to pursue college while enlisted in this field because there is a lot of spare time when you go this route if you are not in a TOE unit.

- i want to reclass to 68x. It seems like a good job to go into. I love psychology and that is my major in college. please give me some info about this field thanks. please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- —Guest reclassing
- I went through the program in the 70's when the MOS was 91Q, great program. Fairly difficult but well worth it, nice job while I was in and it has paved the way for a great career as pharmacy technology program director at a large community college. Best wishes in your studies!!!
it aint what they say anymore
- Alright heres the lowdown. Everyone says ft sam is an animal house, raging parties and 7 to 1 female to male ratio. Negatory ghost rider. It is now a dry fort meaning no drinking and is.starting no tobacco as well. Males far outnumber females. Also during emt phase you get death by powerpoint every single week.day from 830 to 1700

- In response to "I swore in as a 68-S and get shipped out on January 2nd 2013. My question is.. will I ever be working in combat fields? I specifically told my recruiter that I want to avoid working in battle fields. Plus, what's my chance to be working in S. Korea? please Email me if you have any idea. Thank you so much firstname.lastname@example.org is my email." You might get deployed. I know a few of my battle buddies that were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. They even went outside the wire. My first duty station was yongsan which wasn't bad because I was in area 2. We did do inspections in area 1-3.

- I'm Currently in the future soldier program and ship 20130122. My MOS will be 68R and I've been reading a lot of forums lately and I don't think I've ever been more excited in my entire life. I'm ready to start my career and get started in life. I'm only 18. I've heard nothing but great things about this MOS and if the oppurtunity presents itself to choose this MOS, pull the trigger and choose it!! #armystrong #hooah !!!

- I'm a 68W and I love it. It is not an easy MOS and it requires a lot of studying and discipline. The training is in 2 phases. 1st phase is the EMT phase (6 weeks) to get nationally Certified as an EMT and that's the toughest face. Second phase is Whiskey phase(Tactical) phase where you learn all the battle field care etc. If you're already an EMT back home, you get fast tracked to Whiskey phase cutting your time by 6 to 7 weeks. If you're scared of going to the battle field, then I'm sorry don't join the military especially the Army. Every soldier goes to war regardless of their MOS. Remember you're a soldier first.
