So you can enlist as 0300 but you can't enlist as 0311? Because I just don't wanna be assigned to be like a mortorman, or a TOW gunner, or antitank missileman or assaultman. Now Riverine Assault Craft doesn't sound bad but how many 03xx MOS's are there like 10?

14 MOS now......but alot have always exsisted as B-MOS's and have now been added as 03 instead of remaining in the old 80 series of designator.

Rigid Raider, Riverine, Recon Parachute, Recon Diver, Recon Parachute & Diver, Combat Rubber Craft, Scout Sniper all used to exsist in the 85 field.

80 field was an additional skill identifier in addition to your primary MOS commonly called a B MOS

Isn't it true that at ITB, you can write sort of a "wish list" of your MOS's that you'd like. So maybe I can punch in 1.) 0311, 2.) 0331, 3.) 0300 something like that? Just be sure, MOS 0331 carry M249 SAWs right?

Yeah you can put in a wish list, but you'll already be a 0300 when you get to ITB. 31's do carry 249's but at times when 31's are in short supply 11's have been known to hump 249's

Oh. So if I don't choose any MOS then they'll just put me in an infantry division as I understand it? So number one will be 0311, two will be 0331, and 3 I'll think about. So then when you put in a wish list, what are the odds of them assigning you to something you want in the wish list? Oh. 3 should be 0351 I guess then.

No you'll just get an MOS they pick for you. But even with a wish list they will still pick the MOS ..............thats why it's called a dream sheet. You will be 03 that's your guarentee.

Oh okay. I see so dream sheets are useless so to speak lol?
