Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening,

This may be the wrong place to be posting this question and if it is please forgive me, new Marine and a new user. I'll gladly take my trash elsewhere if i need to. I am looking for more information pertaining to my MOS, 2147, LAV repair tech. I've searched all over using different keywords and phrases but always find the same articles which give little to no insight about what goes on. I guess you could say I'm looking for a little more details. Any information or a simple redirection to a thread that contains useful information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read.

Never held this MOS, but my brother in law did and he makes huge dollars at Chevy now as a senior tech. That's all I know.
