I’m a 42A on a postal mission..... in postal I do absolutely nothing so I just work on self development. The S1 42A basically do what they do back home just a different environment. You will have Guard shifts and everything depends on the unit you fall under. Myself and 1 other SGT are the only 2 people on a post under a whole different active battalion so we just do our own thing. No extra duties.

It really varies and depends on where you deploy to. For example if you're F5 Qualified and end up in Kuwait, you'll just be sitting there watching civilians work all day. However if you do not have the F5 AND/OR you are on an HR Mission, you'll probably be working somewhere at or near the S1 or checking people in/out of theater. Feel free to DM me. I am currently deployed.
