STAY FAR FAR AWAY from 91B. Our points are at 798 for E5, which is incredibly hard to achieve. Our E6 points are at 742 though, so if you do make E5, you will make E6 soon after. Its not going to change any time soon because we are overstrength. Awesome MOS, especially with the H8 Additional Skill Identifier, but you could be stuck at E-4 for awhile. I have been in 7 years in April, And I have been an E-4(P) for 5. Waiting for points to come down, I have 642 right now, and it ain't looking good.
