The Quartermaster ETHOS:  Our ultimate goal is to personify the Quartermaster ethos: "Logistics Warriors who are soldiers first, technicians second to none; battle focused; reliable professionals assuring victory by sustaining America's Army in peace and war."

In a nutshell, the quartermasters are responsible for providing the Army with right supplies, in the right quantities, at the right time and place to assure victory.

 Below are the Army MOSs that fall into the Quartermaster's Corps Field:

92A - Automated Logistical Specialist - The Automated Logistical Specialist is primarily responsible for supervising and performing management or warehouse functions in order to maintain equipment records and parts.

92F - Petroleum Supply Specialist - Petroleum supply specialists are primarily responsible for supervising and managing the reception, storage and shipping of bulk or packaged petroleum-based products. 

92G - Food Service Specialist - The culinary specialist is primarily responsible for the preparation and service of food in field or garrison food service operations.

92L - Petroleum Laboratory Specialist - Petroleum laboratory specialists are primarily responsible for supervising or conducting laboratory tests on petroleum, oil and lubricant products. 

92M - Mortuary Affairs Specialist - The mortuary affairs specialist performs duties relating to deceased personnel, including recovery, collection, evacuation and establishment of tentative identification.

They also inventory, safeguard and evacuate personal effects of deceased personnel.

92Z - Senior Noncommissioned Logistician - Supervises soldiers engaged in supply, services, material management, and logistics operations.

The career field 92 is by far one of the most intricate and needed MOSs that make the Army move forward every day.  Without supplies, people who deliver needed gear to deployed Army units, and people who can repair, clean, and feed our soldiers and their effects, there is no Army.  

Logistics specialists have a wide variety of skills that are highly sought after in the civilian business communities.

 The training, experience, and leadership in logistics and supply chain management is extremely valuable not only to the Army and military in general, but to big business in the civilian sector. Army personnel with these skills will have no problem finding a job when they get out of the military.
