Military school

Just wanted to ask if anyone has ever been to the Metal Worker School, MOS

44B, at Aberdeen, MD. while in the Military. I have a son that just got there and will be starting soon. He worked with me for several years and decided to join the Army. He is already a good weldor so maybe it will be good to learn some extra. Thanks for any info.

It could work both ways. He could learn a ton if'n he doesn't think he already knows everything. If he goes at it like a newbie, they will definitely teach him a LOT.

As a teacher, I'd rather have students that don't know anything than those with prior experience. Or worse yet, prior union members.

Never heard of it, but my Dad grew up in Baltimore and was stationed at Aberdeen during the Korean War. I'll ask him if he knows anything.

Aberdeen Proving Grounds comes to my mind. A very old base with History.=
