Hey guys, firstly, thank you for reading.
Ive been in the process of figuring out what I wanna do in the Army. I Was set on going in 19D but, I just now read a non-active post on another forum with a soldier describing his role as an "infantry scout". Truthfully, it sounds far closer to what I want to do than my original thoughts on 19D. Is there anyway to negotiate this when I enlist? Or is this totally a case-by-case small squad role, which rotates or is left up my C.0.?
According to what I read, as opposed to 19d, there is less time spent in a vehicle. Additionally, as an "infantry scout" I would have the ability to provide recon with an ability to destroy the enemy as well.
To give you some insight..Overall, what I want out of an MOS is: to become an expert in land navigation, become skilled in self-surival, acquire the highest level of observation and reconnaissance skills, and display my opposition for those that are a threat to America authoritatively.
Thank you guys.
