    Question from a friend today that I could not answer. Interested in wisdom from the masses.

    Mobile Support Equipment Operator (MSE Op) [Merged]

    Another version of the MSE Op customer service story. I was a Platoon Commander and my platoon was off to do some training with a local fire department off Garrison. The Pl WO requested a bus complete with financial code (as our unit did not have any) and sure enough on the morning of the...

    Mat tech with journeyman red seal

    I will go on to add... Mat Tech is a pretty awesome trade. If I was to join again as an NCM, I would strongly consider Mat Tech. I think it is amazing how they can take a pile of raw materials (metal, wood, textiles, paint) and turn them into useful stuff that solves unique problems where you...

    Mat tech with journeyman red seal

    The nice thing about doing the whole Mat Tech course is that you will say with a cohort and make lifelong bonds. It was also be a bit of a break for your when you are "learning" the things you already know which can be nice and gives you a chance to shine a little. You can also spend sometime...

    Looking for a Reference on Anti Armour in a Mounted Context

    Also take a look at Lesson 5 - Siting the Eryx During Combat Operations (in B-GL-385-010/PT-001 - ERYX—SHORT RANGE ANTI- ARMOUR WEAPON (HEAVY)). Although Eryx specific there are some generalities for general employment of man-portable AA weapons.
