    Some PAO Lite Colonel thought I would be "a great fit" for that MOS and gave me his recruiting pitch. I totally didn't listen.

    I was interested at one time in reclassing to that MOS.

    There are a few different paths that can be worked at, and the majority of the positions are shitty.

    1. You can work for AFN (Armed Forces Network). It is essentially a radio/tv station, and all the jobs that go along with it.

    2. You can work at the Whitehouse, doing all of their broadcasting BS.

    3. What you will be doing: Each BCT (Brigade Combat Team) has 3 of those positions if I remember correctly. Like one E-5 and 2 E-4s. You basically follow the brigade around, going to all of the hot spots, acting as a correspondent of sorts. Combat, ugly stuff, and some of the good that happens out there.

    Cool job if you land a good duty station/position, with high potential for work on the outside, but overall, blah...
