1. You get assigned there. Like every other unit in the Army. The 101st is Air Assault..not Airborne..despite the historical name. Haven't been Airborne since the early 70s.
2. The same as every other MOS assigned to an Airborne division.
3. They have. Though not much. Hasn't been much of a call for forced entry operations required of Airborne units in those two conflicts.
4. You will habitually operate from vehicles as a 19D.
5. No. You use what is issued. Period.Source(s): Me, 23 years in the US Army

look into the Air rigidity first! the advantages a procedures out attain that of the army! in case you proceed to exist base interior the Air rigidity you haven't any longer have been given do pay any utilities. interior of three years of the Air rigidity you would be a SrA and could make extra money. After that it relies upon on you and how complicated you learn. The Air rigidity housing is a thousand million cases extra appropriate then the army's! to no longer point out the deployment time is 3/4 to a million/2 the time of the army's!
