    Smile Pros & Cons of Motor T

    Hey I was just wondering what the pros and cons were of choosing to go into motor transportation. Since I wanted to go into infantry, I cant because I'm a female, but I heard that Motor T was kind of like infantry.
    If you could tell me your opinions that would be great!

    Meagan92, choose an MOS that you are going to like, something that will benefit you after you get out of the Marine Corps, that is, if you make it through boot camp/recruit training.
    Don't just pick an MOS because it sounds good, or that it's something close to infantry, which we all know that females aren't allowed to hold that MOS.

    Well Just About All Of These Posts Are Incorrect, 1 Because Most Of The Jobs Dont Exist Anymore. I Am A Logistics Vehicle Operator, I Drive 7 Tons, Hmmwvs, And Lvs Trucks. I Went Through Basic Motor Trans School At Fort Leonardwood, Which Is Cold As Hell. Then After That I Went Thro Lvs School Still At Ft. Leonardwood. The Bad Side Of Motor T Is That 1, There Arent Anymore 33's. 2 You Have To Wait Around All Day On Grunts To Stop Counting Like Idiots And Get Into Your Truck. 3, Sometimes You Do Long Convoys At A Slow Speed. And The Final.... Ieds.

    I Love Everything About Motor T, Every Motor T Platoon Ive Been In, Has Been Amazing, Wouldnt Trade My Marines For Anyone Else.
