I'm in the process of joining up and have to make the choices on trades. Originally I wanted to be an ammo tech, and my recruiter told me this is a great option to go for, however my dad (who left the army 15 years ago) reckons that all ammo techs do is sit about in hangers and dish out rounds, and that the recruiter is just trying to fill quotas. Could somebody please shed some light on this and what is exactly involved in being an ammo tech? Preferably someone who is one currently! Because I would really prefer not to make the wrong choice!
