Hey good looking out for Maintenance here. I'm a 63A stationed at Fort Benning home of Infantry. This is almost as bad as Korea, I'm a tank doctor on an Infantry post. Life sucks there is little PLL, ancient tanks, and we get no love from the Infantrry we are here to protect. Some day if I keep thier tore-up tanks online, I may get to return to Beautiful Fort Knox home of ARMOR. Take Care man, GO Ordnance!

Were here brother and sister (63B's) just combine training with the new yankee skill for the stryker combat teams.Needless to say i was a former 19d in iraq before the post war assault firing my weapon and working on trucks that where extremely damaged by ied's on the battle field. However my team and i still did reconnaissance and stripped the trucks for security reasons then continued on with the mission...But, i think the army needs to consider giving mechanics a special tab or something because we are the hardest and most flexiable guru's on todays battle field.Combined with a combat arms mos or mechanic specialty is the only way we remain flexible in our technical and tactical skills as mechanics.
