So I've been looking around the internet at specialisms after basic training, but I can't really find much on the role of a mortar platoon, so I have a few questions: 1) Can they go on patrols? 2 ) What is the role of a light mortar? 3) Hselective is the specialism? I know at this stage that I should focus on just getting into basic training, but any information would be appreciated!!
