MOS name changes

Postby Fullmoon » Thu Feb 16, 2017 12:24 pm

I was sitting in the waiting room at the V.A. yesterday and picked up an American Legion magazine to read. In it I found an article describing how the Marine Corps, under pressure from social engineers in congress, has eliminated the term "Man" from all MOS descriptions. So now an MOS number of 0311 Rifleman will be changed to Rifle person and 0341 Mortar man will be mortar person, a 1371 demolitions man will be known as a demolitions person, etc etc. The article also stated that Navy job assignments will also be eliminated from rank arm patches/chevrons and sailors will be known by rank alone with no mention of their job. This practice will end the long standing tradition so as not to insult or slander any female grunts or Navy personel and also help to generate a feeling of equality amongst male and female military member's. This magazine was printed while Obama was president (of course) and it remains to be seen if President Trump will reverse this nonsense.

If the snowflakes are offended by things, they should not be in the service to begin with.

Actually, I had read on the news that there was such an outcry from Navy personnel (women as well as men) that the Navy decided to drop that nonsense.

Sad is it not? For our military to give into the PC police . . .
