I was a 27B
- I served from 1977 until 1984 working on Tow, Dragon, Shillelagh and Lance Missiles. I was at Ft. Stewart, GA 1978-1982 and Nurnberg, West Germany 1982-1984. Best time of my life. Went to work for Hughes Aircraft on different TOW and Bradley systems after the Army.

- —Guest joe
- Joined up as 94F and no one is saying anything good about it, makes a new recruit second guess their MOS decision, does anyone have anything positive to say?
- —Guest sabrina
- i have this job and on my contract it says 47weeks at fort lee virginia so they must of moved the school to 1 location
- —Guest james
better be good at binary
- First off its 45 weeks long. You will go to redstone arsenal for 10 weeks and then fort sill for the rest. Second redstone arsenal is closing so you will be at Ft. Lee for the 45 weeks. Third its actually 35 or so long. If your good at math and electrical circuitry then this is your job ! And your first duty assignment will be germany or korea. And most of us 94 mikes have never worked on radar. Good luck and dont let your recruiter talk you into this rare job and get a bonus if you do.

Training is long
- Ok. It's stated that the training is about 11 weeks at Red Stone. What is missing is the mention of about 40 more back at Ft. Sill, OK. I am a 94M and I love my job. The big issue isn't the training, it's the overcrowding in the MOS. Points are maxed for promotion and they don't drop much. Good people in this MOS and the education are good compensation. Just throwing this out there.

- If what you want for your army career (which as a 94F you will not get past e-4) is to kick back and work on printers then this is the job for you. And no, our mos is not to work on printers, but that is all you will do downrange. sorry kids. your recruiter fucked you. learn what you can from the army, take advantage and get out!
- —Guest guest
- Great MOS. Its a job you can apply to your free time. I build custom gaming systems, computers, speaker systems, and pretty much anything. Most of the 94Es will end up in a support battalion. A few, such as myself, will end up working for Intelligence and Electronic Warfare for a Military Intelligence unit. You will most likely adopt the secondary MOS 33W/35T if that happens. It can be tough when you go to a unit that doesn't know what you really do. Luckily my 33W/35T SSG has been in for has worked with 94s.

Cant get in anyway
- 94 R is being phased out so good luck getting in. Its a terrible job anyway, you spend most of your time in a small closet working on night vision goggles, which I will tell you is a headache! We lieterally did our job maybe eight times down range, so if your wanting to catch up on video games and school this is a great mos.

- I read all your responsed to the 94 Series MOS. Each of you has the right to be angry about how your training went. The Gulf War took alot of the experience away with the early retirement after the War. New Young Soldiers are training you and they have no experience. Remember this, everyone has something to give, either good or bad, take it, put it in your KIT BAG of STUFF. The Bad, use it as a reference of things not to do. The Good, use them as examples of things to help build your career and assist others. Life deals us all a winning hand, we just need to know how to play it and win at it. The decisions you make will make all the difference. The Army Song states" And the Army Goes Rolling Along" what it does not say is" it rolls with or without you. SoBe All you can be and Get all you can get. Remember 1000s want to be in your shoes receiving the education, benefits, pay, clothes to wear and traveling the World. The Train don't Stop so get on or watch it pass you by. 1SG JACKSON

- I have served as 27F Vulcan, 27M MLRS(35P)now 94P,27T Avenger(94T), 27E Tow/Bradley and 27X Patriot (35S)now 94S and finally 94Z. Guys all of you are right about everything you have said about 94 series; however, take the training and experiences and use them to you advantage. Civilian life is (YES, very very GOOD) the time and training in the Army made all the difference. Stop complaining about free education and training and get it, it's free. Hit dogs always holla, so to Soldiers who had bad leadership. So don't complain about it, fix so the future will be better for your children who decides to join. First to Fix Taking Care of Soldiers is Serious Business 1SG Jackson, A (Happily Retired)

94D ATC radar repair
- This job is pretty sham-tastic. The initial AIT portion sucks but once you're finished with that, it's generally smooth sailing as a troop. When you become a cheif, however, it's a different story. Just try to absorb some knowledge about electronics/radar/navaids, and you'll EASILY have a job working for the FAA, DOD, or contractor making pretty good money/benefits.

94L - Get The F***out
- Good luck getting out of this field once you're in it unless you ETS(LIKE ME). Good luck as well making it to an NCO rank unless you're good on your knees, but since your NCO already apparently is you won't have a chance unless they die. So good luck f****ers

Everyday is the worst day of my life
- 94S is great if you like wasting 5+ years of your life. As a previous poster noted, there is a reason promotion points are at the minimum. Anyone with a modicrum of self-respect or intelligence gets out at the first chance they get. Who does that leave in charge of our E-4s and below? The NCOs that stayed in because they new they are unfit to hold a job in the real world. If this is you initial entry MOS enjoy spending 48 weeks(or whatever it is today) regreting you choice. Redstone Arsenal is a very nice post. I wish I could work there.

- How about those that have held the MOS respond from now on? This was one of the best MOS's the Active Army had to offer. Now with the new modular system the Army has done away with my MOS and I am having to reclass. I chose 94Y IFTE because it is the most related field of work that I could do. I have deployed twice and have enjoyed my experience in the field. Very rewarding especially when an SF or infantry soldier asks what you do and you tell them you keep their Apache's flying and targeted in. I have talked to many ground guys that really appreciate the support soldiers taking care of the equipment that supports them. Take it from me this was a great MOS, very technical and full of mostly intelligent soldiers.
