- 91M Bradley Fighting Vehicle Systems Maintainer Being a mechanic is very demanding. Just because your MOS say that you are a Bradley mechanic, Light Wheel, Track or whatever it may be you will cross train on EVERYTHING no matter what your MOS is and expected to know the vehicles in and out of your field. You will work LATE. I never get off at 17:00 like everyone else. If you love working on vehicles then this is for you. It was a major disapointment to me thinking I would get in deep working into the motor. You are basically a parts changer.

- 91C is fun in AIT. I was at Aberdeen before they moved to Fort Lee. As soon as I got to my first unit, I was immediately cross-trained to 91D. Then shortly after that I was doing the work of 91B. Not too long after that I started working on 88's, 1068's and other tanks. They never had the B's working on the AC's or generators though. It's cool either way, I learned a lot and that's all that matters. The more you know the better. I then deployed and got put on PSD so I didn't go any of what I did in the rear during deployment.

If turning a wrench is your thing...
- It's never clean, often stressful, and hard on the hands. You'll work on everything and anything. You'll find yourself in remote areas playing maintenance man to a whole outpost. Male to female ratio, 869:1.

- 44B(Welder) and 44E(Machinist) are now combined under 91E(Allied Trade Specialist) and from what I can tell most units have no idea what to use us for, where I'm currently stationed I have done more woodwork and hanging stuff around the company than Machining, the majority of welding is patching, unless they want a chariot built. Still this MOS was my choice and I will stick with it til the day I leave. True promotion beyond SGT is tough but not impossible, a fast route is to go Recruiter.

- When I PCS to Korea this MOS was 64C.Of course my primary MOS was 19E tank gunner/commander
- Been a 91G for 3 years and never got to do my mos. I got sent to a Sustainment Brigade that has no tanks. The good thing is I got a Security Clearance. I did some 91F work then they moved me into the company armsroom. I believe G and K will be merging soon so going in as a F would be your best choice. It makes sense though tanks are not used much in these wars so were not needed but small arms always will.

- i have been in my field for a little over a year and a half now and i gotta say if you like to turn a wrench than its a good mos choice. big equipment and fun to work on. you can go any where with construction equipment cuz every base has some. about a third of the way into a deployment and construction equipment doesnt like the desert to much so you always have a job to do.
