Here's one for the group that I never asked anyone before when I was in: what made you choose to become a Lance Missile Crewman? Was it the job itself as it was described to you by the recruiter (and were they pushing it?), was it the chance to go overseas, was it the short enlistment time and short A.I.T.? Or something totally different?
Me, I was told there were a few basic MOS's to choose from for the two year enlistment. Before I made a long commitment to being in the Army, I wanted to go in for the minimum; I could always re-enlist once I saw what it was really about, if I wanted to stay in. If it was going to be hell, better two years of hell than three or four. My cousin signed up for four years with the Marines, and he spent a heck of a long time counting down the months and days left. He didn't hate it, but he didn't want to make a career of it, so that's a long time to wait to move on with your life.
Of the choices (cook, driver, grunt, Lance), Lance was the most interesting, and the one that didn't sound mundane when you told others about what you'd be doing. "You're working with ballistic missiles? Whoa." Also, being that the duty stations were Korea (one year there, not the whole enlistment), Oklahoma, or Germany, I figured my chances of getting to Europe were pretty good, and I did get stationed in Aschaffenburg.
And that's why I chose 13N.
