    Mos 0471 ?

    I read on usmilitary.com about this MOS. What exactly do they do? It seemed like they cover a lot of areas. Do they see combat? And what is the difference between 0471 and 0472?

    Thanks

    The only Combat they see is when the have to go in and collect the remains of Our Fallen Brothers and Sisters.

    This is one tough MOS emotionally and it is for Volunteers Only.

    I had to check this out on MOL and whooaaa and behold this is actually an MOS. So in the who entire Marine Corps there are like 30 Marines in this one MOS.

    Seems like this should be more of a FAP or TAD type of thing, but its what ever.
