Hi Kathleen, you might check the Marine Supports forum. There may be more families of Officers there.

For Parents and Families of Officers:

Good luck and best wishes for your Officer as he begins his new position.

Anyone with an Officer going into 0302?

Thanks for the kind words, Keri.

MART and BRC are extremely tough. If your Marine truly desires this billet then send him loads of encouragement to keep pushing himself.
A Recon contract is NOT easily given out so they saw something in your Marine.

Good luck to him to do his absolute best... he will make it if he wants it bad enough.

The two I remember specifically were Marines completing training for an 06 MOS. They had been Recon contracts, finished ITB, went to MART, and washed out for some reason. They were then assigned to comm because that is where the Marine Corps needed people. This was a few years ago, so I'm not sure if it's the same now.

TigersGirl - thank you for that answer, just a point of clarification. you wrote "I have also met Marines in other MOSes..." Were they in new MOSes as a result of being assigned to them after MART or were those their original MOSes to which they returned after MART?
