at all levels. In this role, you will become an expert communicator
as you establish, maintain, and operate communications equipment;
operate laser range finders; encode and decode messages; assist in
preparing and distributing fire support plans; and determine target
locations using computers or manual calculations.
And as your skills increase, so will your responsibilities.
Advanced team members supervise and train other Soldiers, prepare
observer target lists, initiate suppressive fire, and select and
man observation posts.

you for a rewarding civilian career in computer consulting,
information technology support, or data processing.

earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition
After 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you will learn fundamental
Soldiering skills, you will attend six weeks of Advanced Individual
Training (AIT), which will include a combination of hands-on and
classroom training where you will learn how to decisively compute
target locations, proper ammunition handling techniques, system
operations, and artillery tactics.
