I would be a reclass, as this mos is open now. Which duty stations deploy the most? As I would want to deploy quite a bit. How hard would it be to get Italy and Germany? All information is welcome.

Supply is networking job if you don’t know how to network your job will already be complicated because most of the time it’s not about what you but who you know that can help. It’s one that in order to be considered great at it you need to step up and not wait to be told things. Protect your commander assist others when you can and if you don’t know find someone who does. I did supply for over 12 years it’s what you make of it try to get to different types of units for the experience of dealing with different equipment and it builds up your resources.

92Y= accountability. Your job is to protect your CDR, XO, and 1SG. Above all is your CDR. Obviously protect yourself and whoever is under you in the office. You have to like inventories and paperwork. It is a fast paced environment. Multitask. Sadly very few NCOICs are good leaders, usually they delegate everything. It depends on your unit but my personal experience I had to do the work of the NCOIC and 2 supply clerks by myself as a PFC (my unit deployed). You deal with higher ups in BN & BDE all the time. Also you work with civilians on post. Attention to detail is a must. Knowing your regulations because that’s how you protect yourself & CDR. Know how to handle stress. If do go this route remember to take notes of everything. You will thank yourself later. You can get really great jobs after the military with a 92Y experience. If you have people skills you will be fine. Lmk if you have any questions I could help you with. Good luck.

So when your unit deploys you don't get to go with them? And what duty stations have you been to so far? Have you deployed? SPC Karla Sanchez

I was in Fort Campbell. You can deploy if they have the slots. The CDR could only take his Supply SGT and one clerk. No deployments. The 3 deployments my unit had I was already nondeployable by the second. The third deployment I was dealing with medical retirement and was even worst with my injuries. I am a vet now.

I believe 92Ys, even starting at AIT, pride themselves on professionalism, and are proud to be in an MOS that has such great support to the Army structure and mission. Sadly, 92Ys don't realize the MOS's where soldiers are totally different and don't have to oversee, and take care of many things accept themselves and don't know important business process and battle rhythms that are different everyday like for Yankees. This ends up being a pitfall to good 92Ys, because of the clash or personalities resulting in more stress and lack of team work. Which, depending where you are in the Army again, team work is more prevalent in some places than others. I imagine you are lucky if your on a good post or actually in a Quartermaster Unit. I have been on assignments where I am the only full timer as a 92Y and the only full time soldier in uniform. Since I like working on projects as a team, and not delegating everything, it is really difficult.

The positives of being a 92Y depend on you. If you're good at building relationships with others in the logistical world then you can become one of the 'wizards' that people come to when they need things. This will greatly enhance your standing within your unit, and with your CO, 1SG, etc..

The negatives are relatively few. They include the requirement to participate in other unit operations that will take away from the time you have available to focus on your primary tasks and responsibilities. If you're an 'outdoors' soldier you will probably chafe at the time you have to spend in a supply room or garrison environment.

Duty stations are what you make them. While some come with inherent hardships. all of them can be rewarding and enjoyable. The best assignment I had was not Japan, or England. It was the 4+ years spent at the NTC in the Mojave Desert.

If you want to deploy a lot there are many ways for you to go. The obvious places come to mind; Fort Campbell, Fort Bragg, Ranger battalions, and so on. Less obvious would be some signal, or logistical support units.

I will advise you not to go 92Y unless clerical work is something you enjoy. Also, the job requires a lot of attention to detail. Being slack on the accountability side of things will become expensive for you, or your commander. Either way, it doesn't work to your benefit.
