Thank you!


No training seats before FY15.

Either way, I am VERY happy for the opportunity available to the Soldiers that grab up this opportunity when they have the minimum quals.

While I don't regret my switch to 68V, I understand the rank progression to be much more streamlined in the 51 series, and I am quite happy for those Soldiers that take advantage of this opportunity.

MSG, thanks for all your help on the assignment information. I went to BDE retention last week and they informed me I was pending assignment to Ft Sam Houston. Is there any information or links that you can send my way about the contracting units located on Fort Sam? Thanks again for the help!

I was just wondering how often you PCS with this MOS? Since it is limited to such a small number of people do you tend to have to move around a lot or do you usually get to stay at a duty station for a significant amount of time?

Generally speaking, 36 months.

For those already in a 51 slot, what is stopping you from going to the officer side? Most have bachelors and if you really enjoy contracting, can always come back after company command. I'm assuming half are because of TIS/TIG but just wondering if anyone else has put any thought/done this..

Because most of us will be out of touch with the contracting side when it is time to go back. Not to mention the Certification requirements change (usually at the beginning of the fiscal year). In all honesty, a good percentage of the NCO's will just get out and become 1102s and make more money without having to wear the uniform anymore. We took this job to further our options for when we get out.

I used to religiously read this when I applied for this mos. They weren't taking in people due to the drawdown but we're opened back up again. This is probably one of the best jobs I'm the army. Hoping this page will be busy again with interested personnel with questions.

Active Duty to Reserves as a 51C. Are there any 51C Reservists here that can offer some insight for someone that will transfer into the Reserves fall of 2018. As in do you actually do 51C work when you do your drill weekend and/or AT? Do you deploy a lot? Also, what is the promotion like for us?

Thanks for any info you can provide.
