- True...but lets not get it twisted....
- You can sign up for a non combat MOS ( Fix GPS systems or Tele comm ,Admin or Photo journalists work on Airplanes or Radars....) but all that comes down to one Basic principle..
Be ready to use your skills in a combat role when your command deems necassary.
- Is it likely that a non combat MOS will approximate contact with a enemy threat?....not likely...
but it happens alot,
- We had Comm guy who was seting up a antenna spot a Truck Full of armed Iraqi's.......he called back to Artillery and told them to FFE ( send alot of artillery rounds to his location)...he ended up bein the direct catalyst for that elimination....despite working on Communicatio equipment.
- Everyone who signs up knows they might have a hand in WAR....some a little.....some a grip full.
