picking a mos?
- about me i love to go to church and care for others. wat would be a good mos i should pick??
91B (was 63W then 63B)
- I am a 91B and been serving the Army for 10yrs. I have to admit I was disappointed in alot of comments about this MOS. I love turning wrenches and the logistical side of maintenance as well. The only reason anyone would have to do details(cutting grass, picking up trash, tec), is if you are not being productive. Do not listen to all the negatives. You have many opportunities to work above and beyond your area of expertise. There are some elite units that have a single mechanic that is expected to be proficient at his job and able to learn how to work on other pieces of equipment(robots, newly released equipment, and lots more). Just be prepared for long and odd hours. And try to get as much college hours prior to joining, as promotions are rough as we are still an overstrength MOS. If you have more questions about this MOS please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com

Where have all the medics gone ?

- —Guest Muzzy
- im 91b, currently rear detatchment for a deployed unit. when you are done with all the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, they make you do stupid things like pick up grass in the cracks or clean the latrines, police call the whole motorpool. but as a person not mechanically inclined Im learning a lot. if you really don't have an interest in being a mechanic don't pick 91b. Don't choose an MOS youll regret the moment you go into basic and hear everyone elses cool MOS. you will be one jealous mother!@!@er

45K, 45G, 45B, 91K, 91G, 91F
- Well I have been in the Army for 17 years got RCP now I'm a Reservist. Anyways about the MOS, most people have no clue what 45K,G,B are any more since they have all been change to the following: 45K = 91k = completely phased out now. 45G = 91G I think still 91G for now. 45B = 91F and is now the overall armament MOS. from June 1997 to Jan 2012 I have enjoyed being a 45K Tank Turret Repairman. I was able to meet all kinds of people and work for all kinds of people (good and bad bosses). As always the Army and job you chose is only as good as you make it. Jan 2012 I was required to re-class as a 91 F because the Kilo MOS was being phased out. 91F is the repair of almost all weapons systems. It is a very easy job even when you have a lot to do. The hardest thing is breaking bolts or parts that want to be stubborn which is still easy to do maybe time consuming sometimes.And for those of you that asked yes you do deploy its the Army. If you do not want to deploy don't sign up to be a soldier

- been in for almost 3 years now and i do everything at my motorpool here at camp casey korea. ive worked on all wheeled vehicles, M270 MLRS, a little bit of M1068s and that all we have here. i dont know how it is anywhere else in the world but here if you are a 91 or 94 anything you work on it all no matter what your title is also we never get recognized for anything its always the operators. dont get me wrong i love my job gettin down and dirty everyday sometime, bullsh!ttin with the guys at work, its just fun and can help with you future when you get out. the only things that i dont like about being a mechanic is the f*ckin stupid a$$ operators not PMCSing their stuff correctly and not tell us thatsomething is wrong with their vehicle till the week before we leave for the field and not being recognized for anything even though we work late night alot, recover and fix what they f*ck up, and keeping the battalion ready to "Fight Tonight" 580th FSC 1/38th FA 2ID

91G Fire Control Repairer
- I have just completed my training for being a 91G and actually, the training is at Ft. lee, VA and the training length is 19 weeks. The description is a little wordy, so to put it in layman's terms, we repair electronics on tanks; Abrams, Bradleys, Howitzers, and Paladins. Pretty simple stuff, if you're smart enough! Good luck!

- Anyone with 91S with advice or experience? There isn't much advice on the Web and I was hoping someone here knew something. Please and thank you!

I was a 44B.
- I got reclassed to this from 11B because I wanted to go airborne, and was leaving the ARNG after college (Oct 2001). This was my one option, oddly enough, to go airborne, even though I was already 11B qualified and just wanted airborne and a chance at ranger school. It's not a bad MOS. I deployed as 1 of 2 44B (91W now?) for our brigade combat team in OIF 1; spent a year of my life in that country unf*cking everything that we (and they) had f*cked up, metal-wise. It was a good experience...I had a few jobs lined up when I got back and was thinking about getting out. I reclassed again to 98G for the clearance and haven't regretted it yet. I've transitioned that experience/language/clearance into a whole new job field that is incredibly lucrative. I went back to Iraq a number of times and made a great amount of money. I still work in that field (intel) and love it. Out of my three odd MOS's that I trained and worked in, I loved them them all. The Army rocks. It will set you up for life

Don't Do it
- This feild is awesome, the tank is awesome. However the Army is rally downsizing the Abrams feild so after e-4 you have almost no chance of promotion. You have a very slim chance of ever actually touching a tank after AIT

New Location Of the MOS School.
- I was the vary First 91A10 to show up and be trained at the new training Facility in Harmony Church in Fort Benning, GA. The facility has two different buildings for training and in the first building you are only there for about a week, before moving on to the other building. The schooling was good, and a lot of it I remember, and has helped me. I was class 2011-008A, and the one before me was class 2011-007A, which was the last class to graduate that school.
