I started to write a long thing, but realized I have been out for nearly 24 years. I enjoyed being a 12B immensely, but it is not for the faint of heart. Be ready to sweat and work hard and to spend a lot of time in training areas (field problems, living in tents out in the boonies). But, you get to shoot lots of weapons 4 times a year at qualification, and hit the demolition range a couple times a year, at least back when I was in.

SGT Brad Baier - When I was in it was 2-3 months of the year or so, sometimes more.

I was National Guard, but my experience was rather similar. Spent almost every drill in the field, spent a lot of time on ranges. Got out in 2016.

What is a Combat Engineer? In a nutshell, it is a person with a bedrock faith in the idea that in all the many and various arenas of human social interaction there are no interpersonal conflicts that cannot be satisfactorily resolved through the proper application of high explosives.

I agree, focus in the "PT.." part real good. You will be combat arms, and that means PT.
