  • infantry duties while deployed

    What do you actually do while deployed will I actually get to go on patrols or would I just sit in the rear with the gear. What's the difference between being active and guard, duty wise? Will there be more "action" as active? Thanks

    It depends on your mission and deployment area. As an infantryman, you will likely do more "outside the wire" than most soldiers will. I was attached to an Infantry company while deployed, and we went on patrols just about every day (and often more than once in the same day). That was on active duty, so experiences may vary. Depending on where and when you go, you could be focused more on training locals and guarding FOBs.
