Yes I'm a 68A. Training is 42 weeks at fort Sam Houston. You will be able to have your family move with you. You could for sure end up in a hospital. I am in a field unit but I have many friends that are in hospitals.

But as for airborne in the hospital, probably not likely. I only know of one airborne 68A but obviously I don't know all 68As haha

Hi there. I will ship out soon. Just wanted to ask for advice.

What should I do to be the best BMET as I can be?

What certs and degrees should one pursue to further their career especially outside of the military?

Are you able to attend college (campus or online)?

How does one get into the best assignments?

What has been you favorite assignment or favorite experience/memories as a BMET?

Unless you are going to a School that requires You to Maintain jump proficiency You will be terminated from Jump status the Last Day of the Month you sign out of the Airborne Unit...
when you get to the Gaining Unit you will go thru a Refresher course... If it requires or has an Airborne Slot...

Try this One...

Towards the end you can talk to your platoon Sgt and say if you would rather be in a field unit or hospital. They should be able to help with that in closer to course 8. Good luck with course 1 and 2!

It's not that hard. Pay attention and ask good questions. Do your experiments and you will be fine.
