I enlisted into the Marines in march, I enlisted into combat support, There are 4 things in that field that i can be put into, these include Tanks, Tracks, LAAD system, and arty, i was wondering from you guys who have experience, or have some knowledge o this topic, where do they send most of the enlistees in this field, is it pretty evened out, or do they send more people to one certain job? Thanks a lot for you input in advance.

If this is the same 'COMBAT ARMS' program I went in under (many moons ago) I was guaranteed tanks, tracks, arty, or infantry. I am an 0341, mortar man.

As for what you'll get.... whatever the Corps needs you to do. Your test scores will play a big part in that.

What ever it turns out to be, once you earn the title, just be the best you can, and you do fine.

The Combat Arms program I went in included comm, arty, ordinance, tanks, and a couple of other things. I ended up being a comm bubba. It just depends what the Corps needs at that time.
