A lot of people have been asking me “what’s next” as far as training goes. Not that I mind telling anyone who asks, but just in case people are still following this blog… here’s the scoop.
Next week I head off for Marine Combat Training (MCT) at Fort Geiger, NC. This is a 29-day school that will teach us the basics of warfare and combat… including infantry weapons, advanced land navigation techniques, how to work in fire teams and squads, hand-to-hand combat and the proper employment of field equipment and vehicles. We’ll spend the majority of the 29 days in the field, sleeping outside in a sleeping bag and doing a lot of hiking.
After MCT I’ll head straight to my Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) school. It has been suggested to me to keep details on my MOS to a minimum since it is a job that requires a Top Secret security clearance. There’s plenty of info and details online regarding what I’ll be doing, but it’s best that those info and details don’t come from me. I can discuss it more in detail person to person, but I’m trying to ride low as far as what gets put online for all to read.
After MOS school I’ll come home and report to my unit once a month for “drill” while I live as a civilian.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for the prayer and support. Remember to keep our troops currently deployed in your prayers. They need them far more than myself.
