The range of activities engaged in while in the zone was many and quite
exciting, rewarding, for a young man looking for adventure. And, no matter
the primitive, frightening events of a search and recover mission in the
field, I always slept in a bunk at night. I traveled the entire country
eventually and came to understand the commonalities among all peoples and
the evils of war. Good luck to all who serve in this field.

I am a former 92M, and it takes a special breed of person to do this job!

@jhonnycashowns 75% wow! really a person with down syndrome can get rank
(enlisted or officer)? Hmmm! lets evaluate that for a second. First you
need a college degree either bachelors or masters to become and officer.
Now how can a person with down syndrome graduate from college? hmmm! Second
to move up in rank as enlisted you have to go to PLDC for sgt, BNOC for
staff sgt. and ENOC for Sgt. first class. Now a person with down syndrome
couldn’t even make it to corporal or specialist. hmm!

@MrCrashWizard geez, I wouldn’t brag about how much money you make off the
bereaved. I guess the Army didn’t teach you that part.

Some has been deployd with this MOS? I am a 92Y but my unit wants me to
reclass to this MOS so we deploy on january.

I was a 92m for 6 years, deployed to both Bosnia and Kosovo. I would highly
recommend this MOS to anyone considering it. 92m’s past and present are
kinda the unsung hero’s of the military. This MOS is only available in the
Army. There are two active units, and I think there are two reserve units.
And no, those were not actually dead soldiers, they were acting.

Virtually every one of the fallen had parents, siblings, children, buddies
and friends. I’d like to think that work of the 92M helps with the healing
process by providing proper closure.

@theharveyco Hey Harvey, you might just qualify for an Candidate Officer
with your credentials and experience
April 8, 2015 at 7:54 pm (UTC 0)
were those real dead soldiers? or were they just acting?….they looked
April 8, 2015 at 7:57 pm (UTC 0)
I do this and have been deployed doing it and it can be rough but you just
need to stay strong and have a positive attitude…Most 92M that you meet
will have the greatest sense of humor and have the most respect towards
anyone because in this field you HAVE to be respectful of the dead and
still willing to move on and be happy.

Worst job in Army….

I did this 25 years ago, then it was 57F and was called Graves Registration.

this is not what this mos consists of on a daily basis. you will usually
sit at fort lee virginia in a classroom doing nothing or in the motorpool
doing vehicle maintnence. you will only get the chance to do your job if
you are chosen to deploy in which you will only be deployed approx. 6
months. in that case you will pretty much live in the morgue and when
called on you will perform your duties.

@MrCrashWizard im going to that now im going to do 8 years n then get out
do you know where good pay for that career is
April 8, 2015 at 11:05 pm (UTC 0)
ill be waiting for you in my unit private!
April 8, 2015 at 11:58 pm (UTC 0)
@theharveyco Thank you, that means a lot. Some of my friends think im
stupid for joining and they think im going to get killed. and if that be so
id rather die for my country than sit around my whole life wondering if i
could have made a difference.

I served a total of 36 months in Vietnam under the MOS 57F, Memorial
Activities Specialist. That was the MOS that replaced Graves Registration
Technician and was replaced by the 92M used today. I served another 2 years
as an instructor in Memorial Activities at Ft. Lee. I was 19 when I
enlisted. Thousands of bodies went from my hands to the hands of others on
the way home. I remember that the most mutilated, most decomposed, least
identifiable the body, the more I we had to use our skills.

A grim job, but someone has to do it. this is one of those POG jobs that
you cant really disrespect.

@yourtony99 actually its very difficult to get infantry at this time
because so many people are involved in that field, as for “it doesn’t take
skill to point a gun and die” why don’t you go tell that to the guys in
S.F, Force Recon or Navy Seals
