Back in the day, they had one of the highest causality rates in Iraq. You had something like a 50/50 chance of catching an IED during your 16 month vacation to the sand box. Not fun. No idea what it's like these days, my guess would be that it's alot safer if you have to go past the wire now.
Back in my time 88m was the heavy wheeled operator. I believe that the most was readjusted to other mos' so the information that I can give you is about 30 yrs old. You will be able to try to look busy pcms can only take so much time. If I may suggest is that you work on college courses. Promotion points, and to also may ets out with a degree or maybe more. The transmission industry out here is turning into self driving. Truck8bg out here was and is so much work. Rewarding career. Be blessed
