  • Maintaining operational readiness of vehicles and equipment

  • Participate in reconnaissance operations

Helpful Skills

  • Ability to make quick decisions

  • Capable of working as a team member

You'll become familiar with technology while you build strategic thinking and leadership skills that are in high-demand in the civilian workforce.
