    no mos combat engineer?

    I was choosing my mos today and was told me there was no mos combat engineer. Instead of combat engineer he was showing me its called something ordnance. Can someone tell me if this is correct?

    What he was probably telling you is that you cannot sign up as an engineer that you have to sign up Ground Ordnance/Metal Worker wich is very true especiallly in these times. It is very hard to pick an EXACT MOS nowadays you have to pick a field and hope you get what you want.

    It's BS. You can't pick the exact mos if you're going active, but make sure it's on of the mos' in the field before you sign.
