  • Not a popular Field

    I have been told that the chemical MOS is not a popular field. Is anyone here familiar with the CBRN branch? Enlisted or officer I would like to learn a little more about the branch.

    Have you done a search on the forums? I'm fairly certain this MOS has been discussed by other members.

      Perhaps that is just because most units generally only have one slot for this job. So unless you enlist into a chemical unit, I guess it could be said that it is not a popular field.

        Popularity is subjective. Soldiers generally don't love performing "NBC" training (I know that acroynm is outmoded), because it's hot and uncomftorable. The branch has no bearing with the individual soldier popularity of enduring CBRN training.

        Additionally, I have read your posts. I realize you are attempting to just gather "good intell" on your potential accession, but you are overthinking these issues by a great deal.

            Also, a little insider info... it's fairly easy to rank up as a 74D. I've seen 4 specialists get promoted right at TIG/TIS. 3 of the 4 are about to be promoted to SSG.

                Just thought Id porvide some clarity on this thread. I was speaking with my OSM and he explained it to me like this. This is one of the most underutilized fields in the Army due to the intense schooling involved. Works for me I love that science stuff

                  Chaplain Corps now that's a popular field.....

                  As someone else stated it's all subjective. If people move up as fast as Mr.Loki suggests there is probably something less desirable about the field. I've been around some chem units.....and ennnnnnn it's alright. Their training isn't as exciting as other's I have seen.

                  If you are enlisted I could see where you could be told to do a lot of stuff not related to your field. Could happen......

                  If you like science you should think about becoming a Nuclear specialist in the Navy, second highest drop out rate very challenging.

                    I like the field because I have had some experience with bioterrorism countermeasures and emergency planning with our local planning office. My office also takes a lead role in decon inthe event that the nuclear reactor goes boom. So alot of what I do complements this field.

                        CBRNE's not a popular field until the mushroom cloud appears. Then it gets very popular very quickly.

                          Eh, I still wouldn't want to be CBRNE when I see a mushroom cloud, Sir.

                              I had been wondering howlong the AIT was for this MOS and according to the guard chatroom it is 9 weeks 2 days. Just thought I would share this.
