Ok, as a 92Y ( Unit supply Specialist) you'll basically be responsible for ordering items for the unit such as paper, MRE's, and turning in budget reports and such to the PBO. The promotion points for 92Y are always low, there are other additional things that you'll be doing also. As a 92A ( Automated Logistics specialist) there are different things that the Army can start you off working as. You can start as a SAMS clerk, basically you'll be responsible for ordering class 9 auto repair parts, and turning in reports to the BMO, doing daily reports, turn-in excess parts, reconciliations,ORIL's reports, pick up supplies from the SSA, and maintaining a weekly budget report, Or you can start off working in a warehouse were you'll be working in many of the different sections, such as stock control, recieving, issue, turn-in etc.. The promotion points for 92A are very HIGH especially for Staff Sergeant usually always 798, but if your willing to work hard you can do it. I'm a 92A in I like it, sometimes it can be very stressful, sometimes it can be fun. But whatever you choose, do choose so wisely, and if you ever go active, you can be stationed just about anywhere as a quartermaster soldier. Ft. Lee where your AIT will be is a very small place. Good luck hope this was helpful.

[being a 92y myself i would recommend you to go for it over 92A, the points are always low and theres different parts of 92Y. You can be a unit armorer which is basically controlling and doing maintance on different weapons. Supply clerk / sgt is maintaining the commanders hand reciept and Propery Book which is t a higher level. Good thing is you work stright for the commander.

This is a very nice perk of the job, the fact that you work directly underneath the commander. The supply room and the arms room is yours, and you have total control of what goes on in these areas. You can tell anyone you need to to get out of your supply room, or arms room, even if they outrank you. When the unit's turning in weapons you can kick weapons back that the soldier didn't clean no matter their rank as well. And if someone is a real jerk to you, you have the ability to make it hard for them, and there's nothing they can do about it. If they want to come to your supply room and be a jerk, just tell them you'll get back to them on whatever they need, or say you're out. If they come to your arms room to turn in a weapon kick it back and make them clean it again multiple times. You can always find carbon on a weapon. As a 92A you won't neccesarily have those luxuries, and you're ait is about a month longer. Trust me when i say that you want to be on Ft. Lee as briefly as possible. It's tiny and boring.
