I'm a 45K38
at APG, MD
teaching well every weapon system from M9-M1A2 Ambrams
Well, I have been. Awarded 45B10 in early '82. I was one of the first to be sent off to the Bradley course; far and away the lowest ranking guy in the class. Did a really early class in the MK 19 around '83. The one we used was a ex-Naval unit that they reworked.
Funny thing is that your position is what they were offering me to reup in 86. Since they had effectively screwed me out of a $16K bonus I went Reserves instead. I've held 45B, 45K, 45Z, 41C, 44E, 63Z, 92Z & 41Z. I've been detailed Trans and Finance. Makes me a well rounded REMF.
