    Job Within MOS After Commissioning

    When you get assigned your branch, how much choice do you have over what specifically you'll be doing? For instance, if you branch Armor, how can you choose whether you're in a tank platoon or cavalry? Or for Engineering, how can you choose combat vs non-combat engineering?

    Class Rank and Branch Selection

    Previously while browsing these forums, I came across a document that had the order in which each branch ran out of slots and what rank in the class the last person who was able to branch that had.
