I was wondering if there was anyone who was in the following fields : Logistics/Embarkation & Combat Service Support
Ammunition Technician
Communications
Aviation Ordnance

I've looked up and know general information about these fields, but I would like to hear some personal experiences in these fields. I'm having a hard time chosing my MOS any help would be appreciated.

Thanks so much

Rebekah

thanks for all your help. I just got my job. I'm going into Aviation Ordnance Field 65. My recruiter was able to get that job for me for the date I wanted to go to boot camp. Aviation Ordnance and Communications were my top two, and I ended up getting Aviation Ordnance. Thanks again for your help.

Was a 2531 and 2532 (changed to 0621 and 22 I believe. They were doing that as I was getting out.) and loved it. You get to go to the field and do "Marine" kind of things, but you also get to do something a little different than an infantry type, just more components, so things keep changing.

Nah, I spent some time in the wing, swinging wasn't all that great for me! Of course, we did have daily uniform inspections, weekly wall locker inspections-- which included JOB and Alphas once a month. We usually spent about five months a year in the field, at a minimum. About the best thing were the 5-7 PT sessions each week.

I guess the people in the wing were a little uptight and trying to prove they weren't really all that laid back.
