Field Artillery

As an officer in Field Artillery, you will become a combined arms expert, controlling long- range weapons while coordinating with Armor and Infantry forces. Leaders in this branch may also coordinate their strikes with tactical air, naval gunfire, and Army aviation weapons.

These officers are on the battlefield responding with long- range precision weapons against distant targets. They neutralize or suppress the enemy by cannon, rocket, or missile fire.

Lieutenants who begin in Field Artillery may command cannon and rocket platoons prior to leading Field Artillery batteries. Additional duty positions include fire support officer and fire direction officer. Eventually, you could become a maneuver battalion fire support officer as you advance your career.
