97E (now 35M) is interrogator, an MOS that can have a language trailer, but it's not what is generally known as the "linguist MOS". You may be thinking of 98G (now 35P), which is a language-dependent MOS, meaning Soldiers must have a passing DLPT score in order to hold the MOS. I just wanted to clear that up.

Signed up as a 35F so that I could interact with all of the other 35 series MOS's and reclass when my window opened. The MOS I wanted initially (but had incorrect knowledge on the risks associated) was 35M.

If I could go back, I would have enlisted as a 35M.

My whole enlistment process was an insane one... On the outside before the Army, I was apprenticing an electrician. Naturally, I wanted to continue with that so I wanted to become a 21R (now 12R I believe, "Interior Electrician").

Well, 21R wasn't available. Station commander said 91D (generator mechanic) was pretty much the same thing and I had a reservation. When it came time to sign up, 91D was no longer available. So, on a whim, I chose 89D (EOD).

Failed out of EOD (very ashamed to admit) and I got reclassed to 91C. It's what I know now and I'm proud of the trade, even if it's not done very much anymore in the Army.

Back to the question... I'd probably go a different 91 series. 91E most likely (Allied Trades... basically a machinist). Once you are in a certain CMF it just becomes home. I couldn't imagine myself in any other field except for Maintenance.

88K Watercraft Operator. I can't belive I passed that job up. I would be riding on a boat somewhere in Hawaii, Virginia or Japan.

Same here. Had I known about 88K back in 2007, I would have jumped on that.

HOWEVER, if I had done that, chances are I wouldn't have two deployments under my belt, nor would I have my shiny Aviation Wings on my chest. (Yes, I AM proud of my Aviation training)

I would have held out for 35M (my recruiter pulled a fast one on me, and didn't tell me it wasn't open until I got up to MEPS). Though at the same time, artillery has been good to me. The army is what you make it, I'd say what matters more than your MOS is how you approach it.
