And by thermal sight (For the Javelin), a lot of things look alike.

Do they even have 0352's (TOW Gunners) anymore?

"Let us be clear about three facts: First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." -Field Marshal Earl Wavell

The Army used to have more than 2 back when I came in.

11B - Infantryman
11C - Mortar
11H - Anti-Tank Infantry (ie Tow and Dragon Gunners)
11M - Mechanized Infantry

Spent my first 5 years as an 11B in the 82d. Moved on to the SOF field as a 37F Psychological Operations.

I know I'm not an infantry MOS but I thought I'd drop in and say that I do have the utmost respect for you guys. It's amazing how quickly alot of us wingers take for granted what we do. There are many a days in which I wish I were ground side so I wouldn't have to deal with such stupidity.

Anyways, Semper Fi!

I say go for it! I look forward to the money I'll be making(about double what I made in the army). It is very competative I lucked out being sniper qualified with combat experiance they take alot of guys with SF/SEAL/Recon experiance. But it never hurts to go after it you never know I'll have the proof of that in my bank account come summer

I was a 11C and then 11A. I was with the 25th Inf Division (Tropic Lightning) and the 10th Mtn Division. I was so glad I stayed light infantry the entire time.

One of you guys stated Ft Drum. I was with 1-87 Inf with the 10th. I was with 1-21 Inf with the 25th.

Regardless of MOS, I thank each and every one of you for your service. It takes courage to volunteer for the military and toe the line against our enemies. I understand the Infantry is what holds our ground. BUT, I spent a couple of years in the reserves (hated it) but was with a support unit. I was very impressed on what goes on behind the scenes to get us our bullets, beans, and body bags. I would take the Infantry any day.
