What's your MOS (Military Occupational Specialty)? - Page 19

I was originally given orders to become a Combat Engineer, but the Marine Corps had a critical shortage of Field Artillery Fire Direction Controlmen (0844), and since my ASVAB scores were high enough, I was reassigned to that MOS.

If I remember correctly my wartime placement would be 7th brigade, 2nd AA-battery, 1st platoon fire control & signalling chief.

Sounds a lot fancier than it actually is, and it involves a lot of sitting around, watching a big green hunk of metal and listening to guys who spot for planes with an old German periscope-type device from 1936. I also have to use various sorts of communications equipment. This is what I did as a conscript too.

EDIT: Just thought I'd put in a picture of the German device.

I'm a radar/computer specialist.
I'm also Captain (reserve) and a platoon leader.

I know that Captains are not suppose to be platoon leaders but it's a very different platoon.
