How do you become part of a tank crew or mechanized infantry in the US?
As other people noted here, you can pick your job in the ARMY if you meet the qualification scores, back in my day it was the ASVAB test though it may be called something different now. 19K and 11M have some of the lowest scores needed out of any job in the ARMY, as some of my barely literate former colleagues were testament to.As an old tanker, let me give you some advice if I may?Combat Arms is rough on your mind body and soul, you need to make sure that is what you really want before going in.There is no civilian equivalent for these jobs when you leave the ARMY. Even if you think you want to make a career of it, you never know what is going to happen, I thought I was going to be a lifer but ended up getting out after 10 years. The Wounded Veteran Preference and leadership experience as an NCO helped me get jobs but I could have gotten that and a job skill in another MOS.It’s not all bad news!If you are still convinced this is where you want to go, then the ARMY desperately needs people like you. Combat Arms is typically undermanned and if you show you have a decent head on your shoulders, no other MOS makes Rank as quickly as combat arms do. Promotion points to Sargent and Staff Sargent typically hover near the bottom compared to over strength MOSs like medics, when I was in, which were maxed all the time. I saw excellent soldiers stuck as E-4s because there just weren’t any NCO slots available or they needed max points to get promoted which is harder to do than it seems. A commander who doesn’t like you or a just good enough but not excellent promotion board showing can lock you out.Like I said, it is hard on the body and mind and the turnover in combat arms is high, lots of people leave after their enlistment is up and they have earned the college money, some get hurt and transition to other jobs that aren’t as physically demanding and many reenlist to be retrained in another MOS.If you tell the recruiter you want Tanks or Infantry, he will be very happy as those are herd jobs to fill, so hold out for a bonus, as they are typically offered for these jobs, I got a nearly $7k bonus for enlisting as a tanker as they were extremely undermanned back in 1995. Just be careful as if you can’t complete your enlistment for disciplinary reasons (Anything other than an honorable or medical discharge) , you will have to pay that money back.Lastly, it is hard on the soul, I had to kill people in Iraq, I was fine with that as they were trying to kill me, alot of people weren’t and still suffer PTSD today. I lost friends and comrades which really hurt. I felt the death of every person in my unit personally, even the ones I didn’t like. My first Marriage failed while i was in Iraq as a six month deployment turned into 8 months, then 12 months then 14 months, Even during peace time i was in the field for 30+ days at a time, 3–4 times per year.Every Soldier sacrifices a bit when they join, combat arms sacrifice even more.Good luck with whatever you decide.

How should I fill out the preference form for the IBPS PO 2018 to get a posting in an urban city?
When you get selected as bank officer of psb you will have to serve across the country. Banks exist not just in urban areas but also in semi urban and rural areas also. Imagine every employee in a bank got posting in urban areas as their wish as a result bank have to shut down all rural and semi urban branches as there is no people to serve. People in other areas deprived of banking service. This makes no sense. Being an officer you will be posted across the country and transferred every three years. You have little say of your wish. Every three year urban posting followed by three years rural and vice versa. If you want your career to grow choose Canara bank followed by union bank . These banks have better growth potentials and better promotion scope
