Can anyone give me some detailed info on 92M mortuary affairs specialist? ?

I would like to learn more about this army mos. I am also interested in 68X mental health specialist. So any info on that mos would be appreciated as well. Do people in these jobs like them? Is there career potential in the army for either of these jobs? What is the mission if deployed? What is the likelihood of deployment?(I know all jobs can get deployed, but some are more automatic than others I hear) How gross can 92M get? A lot of questions, I know. Thanks in advance for any help.


I understand the basics about these jobs that can be found many places online. I am looking for some more personal, inside info. Again, thanks to anyone who helps.

Update 2:

Wow. Thanks for the info. Is there any way I could get in contact with you MA? I would like more specific info and I don't think this yahoo answers thing is the best forum. I can't seem to im or email you, and I am not sure if you can send me anything either. But please try. If not, maybe I can post my email or number here, but I don't know if that is a stupid thing to do. Let me know what you think. Again, thanks.

    Alright so here's the dirt from a 92M. People in this job both like it and dislike it like everyone else in the Army. This will depend on the individual. The main complaint with this MOS is that when CONUS, the job is simply not done. There is no work for a 92M in the states. Now you will have all kinds of time to do college and details and shamming.. Not so much MA. There are duty assignments/rotations to Dover Port Mortuary and the Richmond Morgue however those are few and far between. You will... I repeat... you will absolutely... get stationed.. at Fort lee.. for the fist couple years. Its how it works. Once you attain e-5 it is possible.. possible.. to be stationed in Hawaii at JPEG or somewhere else. Google JPEG cause I'm not going to explain it. The deployments are 6 month rotations unless you are a reservist. It alternates between the two active duty MA units and the puerto rico reservists. 92M can get very gross. Let me know if theres anything else.

    Oh.. weapons.. yeah... not so much. We are Quartermasters.. The job overseas consists of processing remains, cataloging personal effects, shipping and transporting said effects and remains and the paperwork that accompanies both. Again, not combat arms. Pretty much don't leave the FOB. Hell you might even get Kuwait and not even really be in a combat zone.

    An "affair", which is a romantic or sexual relationship with someone you are not married to, can have love as a part of it, or it could be a sex-only thing.... just depends!! Its just a girl-guy relationship outside of a marriage, and as such it can include any amount of love possible: from none to all-the-way committment. Simple as that.

    "Love" is an emotional attachment to someone or something. The attachment is strong enough that when that person or thing is gone from your life, you experience emotional pain. You know "love" especially when you experience it and then the loss of it. An affair is essentially a social relationship between 2 or more people which encompasses one or several events amongst them. That is why when someone throws a party, they call that an "affair" or when two people fall in love and conduct themselves as a couple, they call that an "affair" or when there is a political row and several political actors are involved they call that "the ______ affair".
