Hey WaterBoy, I cross-trained into 291X1 back in 1982. Made it for 2 years before I went back into my primary AFSC (207X1). I can credit those 2 years and that AFSC with getting me into a computer position later, and eventually that's which way my second career went. Not telecommunications, but Computer operator (manager more precisely).

I think 291 was one of three AFSCs which were combined into the 491 fields in 1985. When I enlisted in 1986, the clerk put down on my paper what he thought was the new number for programmer(X2), but it was for operator(X1) instead. His faulty memory ended up with me going to operator school, but I was able to cross-train into X2 after three years. All in all, it was good experience, and I'm still in computers now.

They changed the 491 to 3C0 sometime in the 90's, and I understand it all changed again sometime after I got out (2003). Can't ever leave things the same, eh?

Why do the Army and Air Force make it so hard?

In the Navy, I was an Electronic Technician.

I was an 811X0 for 5-1/2 years. I was at Loring and Vandenburg. Perhaps we met somewhere. And as we used to say "SAC sucks."
