    Dude, everything they say about Ft Sam is true! Except the part about the 4 to 1 female/male ratio. It's more like 2 male to every 1 female, but even then everyone manages to get laid more than once.

    ****, why the heck did you listen to your recruiter??? Mine tried to get me to go to 88M (Truck Driver) school. Either way, more power to you, Hoooah!

    How does the US system work?
    You have a specific trade for a driver of a humvee? Or is that just one of the drivers positions.

    Like here, if you're a "driver" or trucker then you qualify for jeeps, light medium and heavy transport trucks, transport trailers, forklifts etc..

    There's a specific job for a driver of a heavy truck in the transportation corps. Anyone who takes a course can drive a HMMWV.

    Do US infantry soldiers get cross trained and specialty courses?

    We have specialty courses such as combat lifesaver,airborne, pathfinder, primary leadership development, etc that won't change your primary job. Then there are "MOS producing courses" that WILL change your job, or at least add to it. Once an infantry soldier (aka 11B) takes one of those, he is generally transferred to that job.

    To echo what SFGoon said, we sometimes get crosstrained in another field. This past June we participated in an exercise with a bunch of other Army Reserve unit around the U.S. Myself and a few other medics were given a certification course that allows us to drive 12-Ton, LMTV, and Humvees. The unit that taught us was a transportation unit. Us medics trained a few of the transportation guys as Combat Life-Savers. They're basically there to assist the medics and perform basic things like giving iv's, etc.

    We also had a Canadian Military Police unit training with us up there. You guys a are pretty high-speed.

    Asia:

    I know the Ralph Hall investigation was last year, but did anyone ever email the FBI with that info for a Stolen Valor investigation? He may have cleaned up his act since the law went into effect this year, but it would be nice to know that he's on their radar.
