I put my Component transfer in a few weeks ago for infantry officer. Currently I am a reservist artillery soldier and despite my end goal of wanting to be in the infantry I absolutely love my job. However I am constantly debating which stream to choose with respect to a career as both have their pros and cons (as with any job). I do not want to beat a dead horse as there are many topics highlighting the differences between an NCM and officer, especially with respect to the infantry. I was wondering if there were any Infantry Officers and NCM's who would be willing to let me pick their brains VIA PM.

Thanks in advance :salute:

If there was anything you couldn't find from the forums - you are welcome to PM me regarding anything Infantry Officer related.

As a retired infantry officer commissioned from OCS I would suggest staying in the field that you know.There are of course other factors to consider like what career field offers the best avenue for promotion. Probably any combat arms career path would work. But my .02 is to stay in the artillery career field which gives you a leg up on those commissioned from RMC for example.
