    I plan on enlisting as a 92f petroleum supply specialist. Does anyone have any advice about recruiters or is anyone here a 92f that can give me an idea of what day to day life is like in that mos?

    I would not want that MOS. :noes:

    I'm a step below EOD, but driving a fuel truck in a convoy across Iraq scares the fuck out of me.

    EOD is crazy. We've had to escort them and do stuff with them quite a few times.

    I would try to get into Intelligence/Communications, easier to get into a federal level job when you come out doing the same thing you were doing in the army.

    you will live learn and breathe these catch phrases:
    "what the hell" - "POL"
    "what the fuck" - "big green truck"
    "whats that smell" - "POL"
    etc. etc. etc. I am sure BillyJackNCoke knows more.

    "who the hell?" POL
    "what the fuck?" "this job sucks"

    and there's a few more I made up but they won't make sense to anyone outside of the career field

    On your way stop by and talk to the Air Force recruiter, see if you can't qualify for a similar job for them.
