    If you get sent to a Radio Battalion, you'll end up doing simple troubleshooting/repairs on things like radios, making coax cable, and working with the maintanence unit get gear fixed and issued.

    I'm pretty sure they can be sent to any unit, but outside of a RadBn, I dunno what they'd do. I only met one on the 31st MEU while I was there and that's what his jobs were.
