Wheres all the mechanics at

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.

63S10R4,63B10R4,91B10, No matter how you slice it I am still a mechanic.. Just ETS'd from 10yrs of active duty spent 5yrs at Ft. Lewis was apart of the 1/25th INF before its transformation into the Stryker Bde went to Iraq (OIF3)provided maintenance support to 2-8 FA we were known as the Combat Repair Team-5. Came back to Ft. Lewis the unit got re-flagged then sent to Germany. I was stationed there for 3yrs in Rose Barracks Vilseck,Germany with the 2nd Stryker Calvary Regiment we then redeployed back to Iraq in support of OIF 07-09. In March 2009, I got out of the Stryker Regiment, came down on orders to go to Ft. Drum and was assigned to the HHC 1/10th BSTB. Going from a Stryker unit to Light Infantry unit feels weird, Ill tell ya the workload of a light infantry is nice.
