A lot happens in the United States Army every day. There are many things which need to be commemorated for future review as well as to help with training future personnel members. One of the best ways to make sure that the troops of tomorrow are able to get the help that they need is through video. This is just part of the work you will be doing when you work as a combat documentation/production specialist in the US Army.
What You Will Do
You will be in charge of recording different things as they happen throughout combat and peacekeeping missions around the world. You will use video equipment as well as the latest technologies in sound and production. You will be performing the same kinds of jobs which many people who work in film and television industries do every day. The difference is that you will do your work in the name of your country.
Get the Training
Before you can get started in your position, you will need to go through basic training. This is because you will be in combat situations and you will need to be able to take care of yourself. You will also go through specific training just for your position. This means going through 26 weeks of advanced training. Here you will learn everything you need to know about the equipment you will be using and how to maintain it properly.
