    I agree with Greg on this one – you have provided so many thoughtful and descriptive explanations of the various MOS designations. I can’t believe none of them made the top 10. That said, the platoon names discussion is great food for thought, and the OER bullets are very useful. Thanks again for all of your insightful posts.

    1. As a person who has been guest posting here on Part Time Commander, I hope that the MOS designations showing their descriptions and duties, along with the training required start receiving more attention.

      It is my belief that if more young people find this website, these posts will become more popular, and will hopefully help them decide on what job they would like to pursue in the U.S. Army.

      All I can say is please use the share buttons at the bottom of the posts.

  2. Thanks Chuck; this was very interesting. I must admit that I am not surprised by your #1 post, but what did surprise me is the amount of hits it had over the #2. It seems many leaders are interested in sample OER bullets.

    I must say that out of all these posts, the Platoon Names is probably my favorite. I am not surprised that it is somewhat high, nor am I surprised by the APFT Walk Standards or the Army Physical Fitness Test. I am somewhat surprised that out of the many MOS descriptions that none made the list.

    Thanks for sharing this, and hopefully it helps you develop more posts.
