    Like the Title says, I know C5load is AWOL and I'm looking for any info I can get before I start looking too hard into crosstraining.

    You DO know that command post and logistics planning are both open, right?

    Oh man! I would take loadmaster over command post. At least if you get stuck with a moron working as a loadmaster you would have job satisfaction of actually working.

    Not sure about logistics planning.

    Eh, I just want to avoid jobs with high deployment rates and multiple excuses to keep you after work.

    I've dealt with enough CP guys to know I never want to try that job. And logistics planning really doens't sound like something I'd enjoy. Being gone most of the yeah is actually a good thing about loadmasters as far as I'm concerned.

    Yeah, but you don't get flight pay, and when you are stationed at a base, you are actually there. Not something i really care for, I get bored to easy. And most officers aren't that bad... some can be though, but they can be dealt with.

    That and being enlisted and on flying status pretty much guarantees they will pick up the tab every now and then ;)

    Yeah, and the nice thing is there won't be a "usual" bar... drinking all over the world FTW.
