    A PFC is a private who has been promoted twice. He knows practically nothing and is not eligible to have an informed opinion on how his squad operates. You will be assigned a position and moved to other positions as your Team Leader/Squad Leaders decides.

    As a newly arrived Soldiers in a good unit, you will be assigned as a rifleman, after six months or so you might move to grenadier and later you might move to SAW. Only in poor units are the new Soldiers assigned to the SAW or MG.
