Hey James, Bravo Trooper here. Wonders didn't  stop  when it came to the Army. They train you in one job, you get to your duty station & your doing something else. I was trained on the dinosour(M60A1), arrived at 1/2 ACR, I was told I would be on a SHERRIDAN & be a Scout. Being a recruit, it was a shock.
