    Help Marine Corp Cuts and Re-Enlistmets

    Advertisements
    So I know the MC is making cuts with certain MOS's, my DH's MOS is one they are making cuts in. He was already told he wont promote to corpral this year because there are no slots open. He is up to re-enlist but he wants to lat move. Do you know if there is a list he can get of MOS's that are open to LAT moves? Where he can get it? We want to make sure its something he will like, but also want to make sure its something they arent making cuts in. Originally he wanted to do switch to Motor T but they are making cuts there as well. He'd also like to do Corrections but I dont know if they are making cuts in that MOS. He will be a firt=term re-enlistment. Any advice is helpful. THanks so much!

    Also, im sorry if this is in the wrong area....

    Yah his best bet is to have to talk to his monitor. I'm sure there's info out there about which MOS's are being downsized. My husband's isn't one of them so I haven't looked into it.

    ALright thanks. Do you ladies know when the Marine corps fiscal year starts? DH said it was here sometime soon? I heard he has a better chance of being able to re-up if he does it right after the fiscal year when they are just starting to fill slots. His EAS is next july so he was told to do his reenlistment paperwork as soon as he could.

    Oct 1st is the start of the new fiscal year. He'll have better luck lat moving into a critical MOS. EOD and intel fields are critical.

    Thanks! I know he cant do EOD because he isn't a Sargant. I know it said they are in need to Aviation type MOS's too, so I think hes going to look into that as well.

    My DH is in Aviation. There are some MOSs that are in serious need. He just did his re-enlistment, but a buddy of his in another shop is LAT moving to another Aviation MOS. It's a pretty decent field. DH loves what he does and there was no issue re-enlisting.

    My hubs is Aviation also and in the middle of switching his MOS. Such a giant PITA. Still better than hunting for a job though.
