Re: Details on AIT for 68W?
T1ger8oi, I too am a 68W however I have not been deployed so I dont have information for you on that other than to say that I am in a National Guard Cavalry unit and if they get deployed I will be on the ground with them. As far as the confusion between Healthcare Specialist and Combat Medic is that they are basically interchangeable titles for 68W MOS it just depends on what type of unit you are in as to what you are called, combat unit=Combat Medic medical support unit=healthcare specialist. Another thing to think about is have you taken your ASVAB yet as it requires a fairly decent score to have 68W open to you. Something else I will mention to you is that currently there are skill identifiers that are attached to 68W for other jobs such as 68WM6 is a nurse, however sometime in the near future they are supposed to be getting there own MOS for that, and all the other skill identifers. Also I believe the Army as a whole just changed deployments to 9 months from 12 months but I may be mistaken.
