Good area for those looking into the military who need advice from ACTUAL members and not just: someone whos dads brothers friend was once in a unit with someone that did some stuff that he heard about.

So, post up your Branch, Rank, MOS/AFSC, Job title and a short blurp of time in service, deployments, skills aquired etc.

Please, Keep this thread ON TOPIC, and ONLY post one time with your information. If you are coming in here to find information about the military, please PM whom ever you would like, and DO NOT post your questions in here.

I'll go ahead and start this off:

Emergency Management Apprentice.
Lackland AFB, TX 2/11 - 4/11
Ft. Leonard Wood, MO 4/11-7/11
Robins AFB, GA 7/11 - Current

With my job, I am, for the most part, a teacher. I train people how to properly disassemble and inspect their M50 or MCU-2 mask, as well as inspect and don and doff their JLIST/CPO. I teach them Pre, Trans, and Post attack actions if something were to happen. The most fun I have with my job is when I put the classes through the Gas Chamber, as part of their CBRN class.

I'm also perform BEPO, Base Emergency Preparedness Orientations for all the newcomers to Robins AFB.

I am also trained as a HAZMAT Responder.

Army
Chief Warrant Officer 2 (CW2)
150U (Prior MOS: 15J with 160th SOAR)
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Operations Technician

Stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado

I've been in for 10 years as of this past June.

For the most part I oversee all flight operations with the RQ-7B Shadow for my platoon but I can switch to any Army Unmanned Aircraft. The Enlisted Soldiers fly and maintain the aircraft and I stay busy with airspace, frequency management, standardizations, etc. I'm the Subject matter expect for everything UAS in my Brigade.


By the way we are super short in this MOS for operators (15W) and they make a killing in the civilian world. Hence the reason we can't keep them. :shakehand

Handyman,

The AM rate must be locked up if you have been in that long and are still an AM2. I know when I was enlisted my rate had a very high advancement rate but damn man that sucks. But if you love the job who cares, and it's not like we do this for the money.

How do you like Lemoore? Is there really nothing there? I'm considering jets when I finish primary flight training in a few months and would like to go to Lemoore or Japan if I did. But if I don't select jets I won't be disappointed because I really want helos. I just love flying all together and am glad I have this opportunity that most will never get.

Chief "**** it arrest them and we'll call the ship to come get them"

OPSEC anyone?
Really Opsec? Nothing that has been said has violated OPSEC. You sound like an Army wife on the unit facebook page crying out OPSEC. I am in a MI company so I know all about what can and can't be said. :shakehand
