    What MOS are available in an Engineer Support Battalion?

    I've signed up for the Reserves and plan to attend college while in.
    I want to attend college in my home state. The main (if not only) reserve battalion in my state is the 6th Engineer Support Battalion.

    I'm wondering if anybody knows what sort of MOS's make up this battalion? My recruiter told me combat engineers, but from the description of the unit, they didn't sound like typical combat engineers.

    Hmmm..interesting question. Do they have a public website? You might try googling them and see what comes up.

    What comes to mind for me are the following:

    Admin
    Intelligence
    Truck driver
    Mechanic
    Generator operator
    Tracked vehicle crewman
    Tracked vehicle repair
    Combat engineer
    Facilities (plumbers, HVAC, etc)
    Supply
    Landing Support


    I'm sure I've missed a few.

    They do have one but I'm having a tough time finding the company composition, only the battalion composition appears to be available.
    I will probably be requesting Combat Engineer or Intelligence then, depending on my ASVAB scores. Thank you very much Sergeant.
