If you were drafted into the Chiefsplanet army...
 
I have a list of 177 careers in the U.S. army, taken from this site: http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jo...iation#results


You have now been drafted into the Chiefsplanet army. Report to this thread and I will randomly assign you a career.


As background, I have no idea how many people work in each of these careers, so I made a complete guess. For example, I know infantry is going to be the biggest, but I don't know how may people are dental specialists or radar repairers. So I guessed, making sure that no field is less than 0.1 percent. This may make the army band bigger than normal, but I'm not really worried about it.

So...ten-HUT, soldiers! Show up and get your duty rosters!
