I'm pretty certain when I get the chance to reenlist after my service break, I will be selecting 42A as my new MOS.

I was curious as I develop my "wish list" if there was a way of knowing which duty stations have open 42A slots so that my list could be made practically, if that makes sense.

Thanks for the amazing feedback on this site thus far!

My dude,

This is one of those questions that probably doesn't need to be asked.

The answer is literally anywhere.

Thanks for the quick response!

It seems 42A is considered a good MOS to choose, is there a reason it is so wide open? I understand that every duty station has a need for 42A, but for every station to have open slots is that an indication of something I am missing?

SPC Josh Tharp - 42A is under strength for 10 level soldiers. There is an S1 everywhere you go.

SSG (Join to see) - ....competing with HR Comapnies which are nearly 100% 42As. Usually 3 Platoons, at least one is postal, the other(S) theater gateway strength management.

His curiosity is likely driven by the fact that the ARNG goes by open slots, not realizing AD has a constant need for 10 levels almost everywhere and every MOS on the regular.

Virtually every unit in the Army above company and some of those have 42A1O slots.
If you have choice of station, the world is your oyster.
