I am a former reconnaissance specialist.
When they have a war I went to lead the the fight with the Cavalry.
With a radio I can bring any harm to any sized unit that the other end of the radio actually believes and has indirect fire capabilities for me to
I had NCO s ,Forward controllers and elite forces in front and around me in the the main body, all others are support.
We usually operate in squad level elements in our nominal job once we start an infiltration near enemy lines.
ANYTHING coming my way was vaporized or we try to kill it ourselves
In the last wars our tasking changed from my job mostly to infantry work.
In Korea I was an LRRP called a CRS platoon these days,a "BLUES" scout or the ever popular "Dope on a rope"
In Desert Storm I was in Armor as a dismount/backup gunner on a Bradley. ,even though I was still a 19d100 series whom never trained on the system.
If you don't believe me yell it in a VA...get it on tape.
