Hi, I'm a new recruit to the Army, leaving for BCT in May, and I enlisted as 15G. I just wanted to know some things.
What is training like at Ft. Eustis?
What Is day to day life like?
How easy/hard is it to be promoted?
Where were you stationed after AIT? Is there a main station most people go to?
If ANY of these answers can be answered, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!!
I'm wondering the same as well. I too am a new recruit enlisting as a 15G. I leave in May also. It's hard to find people in this MOS for some reason.
From what I've read on here some former 15G's or current ones say it's a nice rewarding job but it's one of the most difficult jobs to train for during AIT. I would like to know more specifics on this job like physical demands, attention to detail and what makes this MOS so difficult.
I was considering reenlisting into this MOS as well a couple of years ago, but I ended up leaving the Army due to personal issues at home. Now I'm thinking about coming back into the ARNG to do this, but it's been very hard to find a slot, everybody seems to be overstrength. After LOTS of calling and searching online, I finally found an open 15G slot two states away, but I think I'm going to take it anyhow. I really want to do this, it looks like a great MOS.

15G AIT is at Fort Eustis, VA.
After AIT you will be assigned to any unit worldwide based on the Army needs (Active). ARNG obviously stay within their State.
Promotion up to E-4 is basically "automatic" meaning you will get it in due time if you keep your nose clean. For E-5 and E-6 is based on points; a cutoff score based on how many Sergeants are authorized determines how many get promoted.
The hardest MOS course is Aircraft Electrician and I have heard that everyone fails at least a test no matter who you are or what you know.
The good thing about 15G is that it leads you to the FAA Airframe License to work on civilian airplanes. BTW, any MOS in Army Aviation is good. I did 15P and 15T for 20 years combined; crewed UH-60 for 10. Great career!
Hope this helps.
