11B and 25C are the ONLY MOS that can get you into a LRS unit. A few LRS units will allow a 25C on the team, but most teams are limited to 11B. There are very limited opportunities for LRS selection on active duty, most of them having been disbanded or turned into pathfinder companies. The only ones that exist are in BfSBs and in the National Guard. Better to focus on the 25m target of being the best soldier you can be first.Which mos would give me the best opportunity to get into a long range reconnaissance unit?
It's surprising that 19D is not an MOS you would find in a LRS. Why is that? They are scouts, right?
not reconnaissance, scout. They have bradleys and TOW'ed out HMMWV's and find shit for the main effort to blow up better. Way different mission and job than LRS.
In battlefield depth they're barely forward of the FLOT, where LRS is way beyond that by doctrine.
You act like you have a choice between 19D and 11B, when really your choice is between 19D and 11x. If you pick up 11x, then you will be either an 11b or 11c, and guess what, that choice is not up to you. Hate to rain on your parade, but I get irritated at questions like this given my present line of work. Although, your question is better than the guy who told me he either wanted 18b or 11b in his contract...lol...
