Both are in the MSC. Just curious. Thanks for any legitimate answers. I'm looking for the answer, not opinions by the way.

It may be possible in the Army Reserve or National Guard but not on Active Duty. A 72D is a scientific AOC wit specific degree and credentialing requirements. Where as as 70H starts as a 70B. Once you make O-3 with 6-8 years of service you got through an AOC Designation board (Active Only). In the USAR you could most likely hold the 72D AOC with the 70H as a secondary AOC. Usually only 67J (MEDEVAC) pilots do this on Active Duty. It’s common in the Reserve to hold more than one AOC as a 70 series. Example, 70H, 70K, or 70F. No 70A in the USAR.

Not sure if things have changed since I retired (2011), but back then the only AOC allowed to have a second was 70J.

I’m in the Guard and I hold both of the listed AOCs; 70H is my primary, 72D is secondary. As mentioned previously, the active component doesn’t allow this configuration.
