Re: re: worst job info
But there are some people who love being at the TOC. More power to them. Let me be down on the line.

Some like the TOC/OPS others dont. Some are naturally born to do it.
I enjoyed the service until I was sincerely fed up with the service after a 48 hours watch; during that operation 98% of the messages was encrypted. The Norwegian army has this peice of equipment which sounds like a modem being used; imagine going to sleep in your sleepingbag and all you can hear is the "beeeep-wheeeee-beeeep-beeep" sound in your head...

As far as the US Air Force is concerned: Let me say this up front-there are no worst or bad jobs in the US Air Force..however there are intense professions that can turn your head white very quickly...
Please understand the difference between its just a job...or a profession. If all you are there for is a salary..and you arent interested in what it is you do...then you have a job. But if you are engaged in a profession..then its a lifes work with rules, responsibilities...and the satisfaction is internal despite what comes.
In the US Military, we are all grouped under the profession of arms...even the Air Force members do get rifle and field training to allow them to fit in with the rest of the more agressive services. We dont get as intense of training..but we do learn which end of the barrel to point down the range..and how to load it.
Within the profession of arms..we have our potential profession of interests. Medical, logistical, administrative, support...and yes of course flying operations are all our professions of interests we engage in.
Now..if i had to pick the least liked profession in the US Air Force...in my opinion it has to be administrative. I would even rather be a cook/food service manager than an admin technician, due to fact i hate paperwork. But even administrative services has its place in the profession of arms. It takes a tough person to hang in there in the world of the pen and paper..and I do salute them.
to the Admin troops....
If we should have to fight, we should be prepared to do so from the neck up instead of from the neck down. General James H. Doolittle, USAAF
