  • My husband is an 88M. I wouldn't say it's the Best MOS to have, but everyone needs them. An 88M is a driver. Their job is to be licensed and drive vehicles around. It's no more dangerous then any other MOS. Yes they drive around a lot usually, but I don't worry about him any more or less then if he were doing a different MOS. He's completed 3 tours in Iraq. 2 doing 88M stuff and 1 doing MP stuff. Didn't worry more or less any of he times.

Transportation is the backbone of Logistics, and therefore Motor Transport Operators (88Ms) are the backbone of the Army's support and sustainment structure, providing advanced mobility on and off the battlefield. To operate and maintain the Army's complex vehicle systems, Transportation Corps Soldiers must be of the highest quality, with unparalleled motivation and self- discipline.

    Motor Transport Operators are primarily responsible for supervising or operating wheel vehicles to transport personnel and cargo. Some of your duties as a Motor Transport Operator may include:
