The marines are some of the most highly trained members of the US armed forces. And though their courage and combat skills are immensely attractive, they also come with a different set of priorities and a different kind of temperament, which do not make for easy dating. So if you have just stared dating a marine or are thinking of dating one, here are a few things you need to keep in mind. However the marines are different from other service personnel by being are mobile, lightweight and very rapid. They are a highly mobile amphibious attack force.
Hello sir, Do ground itelligence officers or logistic officers see combat? Also how exactly can one become a scout sniper platoon commander? Every Marine can potentially see combat.
It depends on the unit you become assigned to and whether or not you ever get the chance to deploy.
Adjutant Officer -
I understand that you may not know the answer to this but any info would be appreciated. If you fail the school you will be reassigned as you stated.
You can get an idea of competitive using this breakdown from a few years ago. For most ground MOSs, you can become an instructor once you hit Captain. How competitive or likely will it be, to get Air Craft Maintenance? Will I be able to do hands on work?
Your competitiveness is dependent upon performance at The Basic School. There are Marines trained specifically to work on specific parts of each type of aircraft. Yes, you can deploy with a Marine Expeditionary Unit which will have you working on a ship for about a year.
Is that accurate? Hello sir I am going to be a freshman in college and am very interested in the PLC program and was wondering if you could give me advice on the best place to start or how to get the process started.
You will need to find the nearest OSO and they will start the application process. Not computer science, but like chemical or mechanical engineering? Asking because I enjoy engineering in general. How much say do new officers get in where they are stationed, if they have any say at all? Most officers will know their duty station coming out of TBS. There are Marine officers from every MOS stationed across the world.
Special considerations are given under certain circumstances such as family issues e. Are there any MOSs that are non deployable, or less likely to be deployed for Officers? Something more family friendly? Hello, What type of MOS is more in line with administrative work? And is Adjudant a less-regarded position? Adjutants deal with a lot of legal matters and review all paperwork before it goes to the XO and CO.
MOS selection is potentially years away from where you are at right now. Thanks so much for this forum. It seems as though most translators for all branches are only enlisted positions. There is no office MOS in Linguistics. I have a quick question in regards to switching from an air to a ground contract. My true desire is to sign a ground contact. They say the reason for this is that my chances of getting selected for OCS automatically doubles since the Marine Corps is in need of pilots, and once I get to TBS, I can easily switch to ground.
I just wanted to ask if this is true, and if this is common among candidates? Or is it a ploy to get me locked into an air contract? There are always other Marines that want to fill those slots.
Thank you for the reply sir! Firs of all, thank you for your service! Secondly, I am a going to be graduating college this coming spring and am looking to do fall OSC!
Dating a US Marine
I am aware of the accounting positions the marine corps has, but just wanted to know if there are other options?! The best part about being a Marine officer is having the privilege to teach, mentor, and guide young Marines.
Regardless of MOS, you can use your knowledge to empower the Marines in your charge. Do you need an air contract for Air Intel? Also, as far as you know, what is the daily life of an MP officer like? Or that are most likely to be stationed in SC? I know that it is ultimately up to the needs of the Marine Corps.
There is no linguist MOS for officers. Once you have a few years as a Marine officer you can be considered to become a Foreign Area Officer which will make use of language skills. You deploy as a Logistic Officer if your a Logistics Officer. You deploy as an Infantry Officer if your an Infantry Officer. What you actually do on deployment is dependent on the billet your filling. Do Air Intel officers sit around a lot when their not deployed.
What do they do on a normal work day. Sit around or move. Which MOSs are for females? And which MOSs are most popular for females? All MOSs are open to females so long as you complete the required training.
I only have one month left to finish my BA and I would like to know what to do to become one. There are no Marine meteorologist officers. On the enlisted side, we do have weather specialist. I did four years active duty and now want to become an Intel officer. How many years for an Intel contract for both active and reserves? Any jobs in Intel not guarantee for reservist or do both Active Duty and Reserves qualify for the same. Intel is a low density MOS.
Ground contracts are four years in most cases, five for Naval Academy grads. I plan to be a social worker in the marine corps. Is that even a possible officer MOS for the marines or not? I like to say that every officer is a social worker. You will work with Marines from all walks of life with personal, financial, mental, and family issues.
As their officer, you will help guide, mentor, and find them resources. Can Marine Officers be involved in linguistics or translators?
If not, does being bilingual benefit an Officer at all? Yes, knowing other languages can be extremely helpful for your career. You cant test out for a language and get extra pay and it also looks good if you want to try and do the FAO Foreign Area Officer program later in your career.
With FAO, you will get to earn a Masters and learn a new language. You must compete for MOS selection regardless of background. Every stay who does the slating of officers has a different mindset. Is this true and is there anyway to improve my chances?
Infantry can be competitive. Physical fitness is a huge factor when the staff selects Infantry officers. The Infantry Officer Course is brutal and has a significant failure rate. TBS will help with this! You could also deploy to a number of other places. Thanks for all you do. You also have to pass flight school.
Finally, will AAV Officer jobs still be available in about eight years. About 12 weeks. FInally, How long do you have to do college to become an officer, and should I enlist or go officer. If you want to do something new and exciting right away, consider enlisting. O may oversee other avenues in a new installation as needed.
I seen a few stretched a might thin before. Lol true story.
Also, do you have any info on the day-to-day of ground intelligence officers? Has a DUI charge. A BFA degree 3. Has a previously broken clavicle which still has a titanium plate still intact? If I could still get in, how long would the process take to get waivers for the DUI and broken clavicle? CI is not an MOS. It is an additional responsibility that officers from any MOS can be assigned when an investigating officer is needed.
I am looking to work under an MOS that deals with some form of counseling. Any recommendations of jobs that I can start looking into as well? Great question. Every MOS will put you in charge of Marines who need counseling. You will be one of the first lines of support for a Marine and will work with senior staff, medical, and outside organizations to get Marines support.
I want to enlist into that field, but after I earn my degree I want to still work around dogs.
Is there anyway that is possible? You could have Marines under you that handle the dogs. Do either of those have to go through infantry officer course or is that just for ground intel? Thank you for your time. To get Intel, be at the top of your class, if not the number one officer.
These brave men and women are the epitome of selflessness, bravery, courage, and patriotism. Some people are quite specific and want to only date a marine officer. Before you go and find a local bar by the harbor and wait for a man in uniform to come on in, here are some essential things you need to know while dating a marine. 1. PDA is Limited. Jun 18, I am Army Enlisted IRR and I am dating a Marine Active Duty Officer. We met as civilians through mutual friends but are concerned about the fraternization policy. The Marine Policy is unclear about the Reserves and IRR while the Army policy states the relationship is ok. Since he is the active duty individual we are more concerned with the 5/5(K). Because of these regulations, your marine may not be able to "post to your wall" or reply to public messages in certain ways. Everything he posts on social media websites has to defend the Marine Corps and show the entire branch a positive light. Follow rules Dating a marine is not like dating a guy or a girl in a regular job.
Best of luck! Logistics Officers have a lot trucks, Communications Officers have comm vehicles, etc. These will vary with your TBS graduating class. They are generally higher density MOSs like communications, logistics, supply, etc.
I was wondering how competitive the mos AAV Officer is to get into. And what are some common places aav officers are stationed? Adjutants focus on administrative and legal matters. Intelligence officers could be viewed as analysts, but really there will be analysts working for them and their job is to evaluate information and present recommendations to commanders.
They may try to persuade you to go Ground first and try to get selected as a pilot later on, but I would caution against this if your soul desire is to be a Marine pilot. Perhaps, a qualification which pilots can obtain. If u are a adjutant officer or public affairs officer are u in combat at all or is it like a regular jobs of some sorts. Every Marine has the potential to be in a combat situation. However, the day-to-day for an Adjutant or PAO will be more administrative in nature.
The Marine Corps recently added a Cyberspace Operations. Be the top ranked officer in your graduating class at The Basic School. Throughout the selection process you will learn about all of the Marine communities and may decide you want something different.
Current Sergeant of 5 years. End goal would be the route, but seems to be a difficult topic to find adequate information on. Any resources or location to obtain such material? It is a competitive MOS and in recent years selected officers had to complete the Infantry Officers Course prior to going to Intel school.
With that being said, IOC training cannot be disclosed. Focus on being competitive for the MECEP boards, taking college classes on the side, and setting a trajectory towards commissioning first.
Should they finish the current training then reapply to switch or is that even possible?
If they quit on their own volition, not fail out, would they have the option to reapply to another MOS or would they just be reassigned?
In general, you cannot change your MOS.
Dating a marine corps officer
Is there a bigger description of each of those 4 jobs? Airfields are a product of many different MOSs. It depends more on where you are stationed than anything.
If you get to the Marine Air Wing, you will be doing airfield all the time. Is there any officer jobs that deal with MWD? Also can you be a military dog handler and also be an officer?
No, officers do the handle dogs. Military Police Officers have handlers who work for them though. Sir, I am active duty navy in Yokosuka going to the naval academy and I was curious on which particular Marine Officer MOS have high opportunities on getting stationed overseas in areas such as Europe, or Yokosuka japan.
I have seen and heard of marine officers in Europe. A good chunk of Marines will always get stationed in Japan. Thank you for your help. My logic comes from a desire to learn about being a Marine before leading Marines.
Will I have to complete an enlisted contract of 6 years before applying for a commission, or can an application be submitted sooner? You can apply anytime during your enlisted tour.
Seeing as you have a bachelors, why not just apply for OCS?

Officer Candidates School (OCS) is where mind, body and character are screened, evaluated and honed to a razor-sharp point. Leadership is measured not by how well you follow procedure, but how you lead in conditions of uncertainty. Decisiveness, judgment, initiative and moral courage are tested in the midst of chaos, exhaustion, indecision and. The Marine Corps encourages Enlisted Marines to further their education and talk with their chain of command about the opportunity to face and win each battle as a Marine Officer. Open to active and active Reserve Marines who are Lance Corporals and above who have earned a Bachelor's degree. Must complete one ten-week training session at OCS. Dec 27, It's God, Country, Corps. There is a saying that if the Marine Corps intended for you to have a girlfriend/wife. boyfriend/husband, etc. they would have issued you one. Might want to keep this in mind if you are considering or actively trying to date/marry a Marine. The Marine Corps does not offer any sort of benefit for girlfriends or.
Military men are used to being thrown into countries and situations with which they are unfamiliar, so when traveling, always expect to have a great navigator around.
Basically, dating a Generation Y military man is no different than dating anyone else. His may be unimaginable to you, but that does not make him any better or worse. Dating a service member is not all fun and games; it takes a lot of work and patience, but if you are interested in the person and not just the uniform, then he is definitely worth the pursuit. Also, if you are lucky enough to date one or some!
