Air Force Loadmaster ? other opportunities ?

Just curious about air force loadmaster job. 1)How hard is the math to be a loadmaster? i am not that great at math, but i am decent and i have passed my math classes except algebra 1, but i passed it later. 2). What other courses do loadmasters take other than their job training? do they do the water survival test? what about other courses? 3) can loadmasters be or get airborne qualified. like do static jumps? 4) sometimes i see pics with load masters carrying guns. whY? do load masters get to see combat at all? do they get into some heavy action at all? or are they always connected with their plane? 5). How often would an loadmaster go up with the plane in a week or so? are hours straight forward, or can you get some awkward hours? 6) if you have been an air force loadmaster, did you like your job? why? If you had a chance to go back and make a choice of either being an infantryman or a loadmaster, would you choose loadmaster again?why? if you are out of the air force, what job did you get after being a loadmaster. Thanks! i am aware there is no air force infantry. just asking that last question because army infantry is something i am interested in too.
