I'm currently in the TXARNG as a Cable Systems Installer/Maintainer or a 25L which is a dying MOS. It's dead in terms of E-5 promotions and there is even speculation that it will be phased out very soon. I eventually want to either work as a Title 32 military technician, go on ADOS orders, or become an AGR. I often see most full-time positions open for 31B's Military police and 92Y's Supply specialists than most of the other MOS's. Which MOS would be most beneficial to re-class into in terms of promotions and my goal of becoming full-time?

As far as short term and long term benefits, 42A. I see a lot of admin NCO positions open for e4-e5 more so than supply NCO. With that being said, 42A also is probably the easiest transfer of MOS to civilian sector job you can find. From there you can snag a AGR slot for admin work it a few years then take a 6 slot for supply and reclass. It is world's easier to transfer within the AGR program then actually get into it. Go figure.
If you were E5 already I would say 92Y because there is a supply AGR position at almost every unit in the guard if Texas is anything like Pennsylvania but as a 92Y talking from experience I sat as as an E4 for a while in the armor position because most BNs only have one E5 position so you hit a funnel. I reclassified to 13T in my BN to get E5 and then waited another 3 years for a supply sgt position to open up. Honestly the easiest way into the AGR program is prob getting an ADOS position helping a recruiter and then jumping in to a recruiter position when it opens up then you can reclass after that if a 92Y or 31B position opens up but I've seen more people enter AGR through recruiting
