What this job is about

The armed forces require a lot of supplies, from food for soldiers to gas for armed vehicles and weapons – you get the drift. And, since the organization of supplies requires a precise touch, specialized supply technicians that track the use off supplies, as well as divvies up goods and reorders new stuff so everyone has exactly what they need. Because you'll be keeping meticulous records, it's better for someone with good organizational skills. Record-keeping, inventory control, shipping and receiving are all in a day's work for supply techs. If you're really into bubble wrap and invoicing, it'd be the perfect job for you.
