Well just got back from meps yesterday and i picked 92F and i don't have a clue what im going to be doing. its not really what i wanted but i have a felony and my choices were limited because of the security clearance, and after the woman said 30,000 sign on bonus i picked it lol. now i kind of regret it because it sounds pretty dangerous, driving trucks full of fuel lol but gotta do what i gotta do. well reason why im writing on here is because i was wondering if there is any prior service 92Fs or anyone that could give me an idea of what I will be doing after basic and ait. or what they had to do while enlisted. I cant find anything on the internet really.
that was me i dont know why it doesnt show my account name but what ever.
[rant]First off, I am continually amazed at why recruits go to MEPS not knowing what jobs they qualify for and what they want. Recruiters should be telling their recruits what they qualify for long BEFORE the recruit goes to MEPS. That way, recruits know exactly what their options are and what each job is. If the recruiters aren't doing it, then the recruits need to be ASKING! [/rant]
Now... 92F. You'll be driving trucks. A lot. When you're not driving a truck, you'll be fueling aircraft.

There are dangerous jobs in the Army??? Holy crap, no one told me...
dude, you have nothing to worry about. i am a 92f. ait it 9 weeks even though you might get told 10. after that you are likely to go to PVOC (petroleum vechicles operators course) which is a short version of the 88m ait. you will be considered like permiment party there but ft. leanordwood just sucks.(nickname= ft. lost in the woods, not a lie) i then got stationed at fort hood. if you get an aviation unit your a lucky guy, if not its boring as hell. i am curently deployed in iraq and have yet to do my job once. everything over here that deals with our job has been contracted to thrid world nations and we do not do any of it. so don't worry its not all that bad. but it is boring. i am already working on reclassing as soon as i get back and working on the paperwork now. good luck
I leave for WTC in January and start 92F AIT in March....Cant wait....heard the job is boring but Im looking to go to school..finish my degree...whats the work day like?
My sister is 92F and I just picked 92F for my job, she said it's easy and boring as hell. She told me to get used to smelling like fuel. I go to basic 20090113 and do my AIT in March at Fort Lee. Good luck!
Hey I leave for basic on 20090113 too and my AIT is also in March at Fort Lee. I picked 92F too. I have been a little worried about it since I don't know anyone in that field and I can't really find anything on the internet about it. I'm glad to see that you aren't worried about it. Maybe it won't be all that bad. Maybe I'll see you around!
I found a survey online filled out by a wife of someone in AIT for 92F. They said its pretty much classroom work for the first 6 weeks. Than week 7 we are in the field. Weekends off and such. It maybe different for me and the rest of you guys cause Im prior service but I hope to see you all there.
I'm sure you may see me there, my name is Michelle too. I'm Michelle Dudley, you won't miss me, I may be the only 32 yo woman in Basic, but you never know. Good luck and I'll see you at Basic Hoo-hah!
You wont see me in basic training. Im going to the Warrior Transition course. But maybe in AIT. I start AIT i think March 6th.
im currently an ait student at fort lee I graduate next thursday. The training for the job is basically learning all the different trucks and the types of hoses and fuel systems that come on them..lots of memorizing. You go out in the field after week 3 a lot and actually start getting hands on. You take about 9 tests all of them are pretty easy just pay attention in class. be ready too go to pvoc after ait for 5 weeks at leanordwood. if you have any other questions feel free too message me foxes.
I'm heading down to meps next thursday hopfully to sign up for WTC and 92f would anyone know whats going to happen after WTC?
This may be outdated but all the information on here has been the most informing i have read, so if anyone can tell more in depth of what training is like it would be greatly appreciated, thanks
I was a 92F for 5 years. I just got out in April of 2009. I deployed to Iraq twice for a total of 27 months.
There are two different types of assignments that you can get: Aviation unit and Ground Unit (for lack of better terms) If you get assigned to a ground unit you will be in a BSB (Brigade Support Battalion), a FSC (Forward Support Company), or a Sustainment Brigade. Usually that is. Nothing in the Army is guaranteed...
You will be in either a POL (Petroleum, Oil, Lubricants) and Water platoon or a POL and Ammo platoon. POL is your 92f's. It also stands for Painting, Odd jobs, and Landscaping ... Not officially that is, but if you are a in a ground unit that is what you do.
My first deployment I drove a lot of fuel trucks around Iraq. I also drove a lot of forklifts and RTCHs. My second deployment I went as my company's training NCO. Only went on the road a couple of times that second deployment. The POL platoon on the other hand was on the road almost all of the time.
It does get boring, but also you will have you hands full with a bunch of odd jobs for you company. 92F's get tasked with a lot of dumb crap.
My best friend, we actually went to basic, AIT, and our first duty station together, was in aviation. He gets worked to the ground. Aviation units always have something going on, especially if you are going to Ft. Campbell, KY. If you are going there. Don't get caught up in the hype and don't listen to everyone that says it Sucks. Make the best of it and you will be fine.
Let me know if you have any other questions. I guarantee I will be able to answer them.
HEY MICHELLE YOU WON'T BE THE ONLY 32 YEAR OLD...my husband is 32 and he will be there as well..lol

Well, the thing is, Michelle posted that a year ago so (1) she is no longer at BCT and (2) she is now 33.
It's best not to drag up posts that have the last entry more than 6-8 weeks ago, particularly in this forum as these tend to be short-lived discussions.
ok so i did not check the date...
I also leave 20090113 for 92F with AIT afterwards at fort lee, VA. I'm just curious about what you do day to day at AIT. From what I've heard so far it sounds very similar to college, maybe a little closer to a vocational school that you live in dorms for. Can't wait to get done and back to school to get that pilot's license and go WOFT!
Im PFC Barrientos and I leave on June 09,2010 how is AIT IN FORT LEE VIRGINIA? Im in the split off program and none of the recruters are being helpful with what my job does and what will happen. Another question that I have is how long is it? Will I be back before September 07, 2010? Thanks if you answer my question
