I'm trying to reclass to 68P. Can someone who acctually does this job tell me some things about it. Good and bad. I am married, what would AIT be like for me and my wife? Will I get housing or have to stay in barracks?
quote:MEDDAC - You will work 40hrs at least every week, maybe more but that might be 7pm--7am NITE shifts.
Your weekend might be MON and THURS. Then the next week it is TUE and SUN (hospitals are open on weekends)
As long as you do your job well...that it seems is all that matters. (being a good soldier or nco matters VERY little in comparision to your job...almost none)
Unit Cohesion is almost extinct - PT is on your own usually. If you deploy it will be b/c you are PROFIS...so you will go with a unit based from elsewhere for support. It wont be like your whole floor at the hospital deploys with you. Much much less unit cohesion. No time for that, b/c patients come first (and rightfully so)
The overall military bearing and soldiering in MEDDAC is 1/10th what it is in a TOA unit. If that's something you ENJOY....kiss it goodbye.
