Question: I just signed up for the cavalry scout position and I leave at the end of april for for knox. If anyone could tell me a few things about it I would really appreciate it. What can I expect as a cavalry scout? I've heard that ranking up is quicker when you are a cavalry scout. Is this true? What jobs are available in civillian life for ex cavalry scouts? What other pros and cons are there to this occupation?

A Scout is the commander's eyes and ears on the battlefield. When information about the enemy is needed, they call on the Scouts. They are responsible for reconnaissance and learn about various weapons to include explosives and mines. Cavalry Scouts engage the enemy with anti-armor weapons and scout vehicles in the field, track and report enemy movement and activities, and will direct the employment of various weapon systems onto the enemy. The cavalry scout leads, serves, or assists as a member of scout crew, squad, section, or platoon in reconnaissance, security, and other combat operations. Now you should have done your research and talked to your recruiter, others in this field, visited a base with Cav units there or read something on it before signing up. But it is what it is. We used to look at the cav guys as second-tier infantryman lol. But in jest. Combat Arms normal have lower promtion points for ranks E-5 and sometimes E-6. If you are doing the right things (i.e boards, college, correspondent courses, high marksmanship qualification, high APFT, attending Ranger, Sniper, Combatives, RSLC etc) then you advance. As for civvie jobs, you can do whatever YOU what want when you get out from teacher to doctor to President of the US. You got back to college or vo-tech or whatever and retrain. Don't limit yourself or buy into the b.s. that all you can be is a cop or a security contractor. Pros are many and the cons...we don't let 'cons' serve in the Army. Stay focus and don't believe rumors without facts. you'll be fine. Scouts out. http://www.cavalryscouts.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cavalry_Sco...

Yes I was a scout back in the 60's. My two older sisters were also scouts. My parents divorced before I was of Girl Scout age but somehow my mom still found the money for me to join. She thought it was important. I enjoyed it, I was 11 when I got into it and stayed until I was 13. I was chosen to be the patrol leader by the other girls. It made me feel fantastic that they chose me to lead them. Those were two of my most fun years as a child. I used to be very proud of coming to school with my uniform on and my patrol and I raising the school flag once a week. My mother couldn't afford the new uniform for me at first so I wore my older sister old fashioned winter long sleeve uniform in Calif.After awhile when my mom saw how much I liked it, she bought me a new one. I have changed in the past 40 years but still remember the good times of scouting.

There is a high demand for civilian Cavalry Scouts. Just kidding. You can meet me (Fire Support Specialist) with the Infantry guy in the unemployment line. The other guy who said use your GI Bill is dead on. Enjoy being a Cav Scout... you'll get to do Cav Scout work and you'll probably do a lot of Infantry stuff too since there isn't a whole lot of Scout work in Iraq and it's not always easy to do mounted Scouting in Afghanistan. It's a good job for adventure and for doing "army stuff". Sounds like a great choice to me. Have fun, good luck!

Ill be honest. Im pretty sure, at least at this point, that women cant even do Cav Scout, considering it is a combat oriented MOS

1) You usually rank up quicker in the Army 2)There aren't really a whole lot of jobs coming straight out, you'll have to get some education via your GI bill 3) The fact that there aren't a whole lot of jobs out there when you get out, plus you'll be patrolling the streets which makes it a lot more dangerous than a specialized job that keeps you on base

Like the other guy said. Make up a resume...teams you played for, accomplishments, things like that. When inviting them to games be sure to include your high school schedule or your regular season schedule. That way they have time to schedule a time they can see you. If you are playing in larger tournaments that helps. I played in USA cup quite a few times and thats how i got noticed. If your team doesn't play in tournaments on a larger scale look into becoming a guest player for other teams, with your status I'm sure they would love someone with ODP experince on their roster. Good luck
