Marines in the Ground Ordnance Maintenance field are responsible for inspecting, repairing and maintaining the weapon systems in the Marine Corps. Marines in the Ammunition and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) field are trained to handle hazardous materials and to disarm explosives.

Here is the Marine Detachment site for Ft. Lee. Ammo Tech is listed under Bravo Co.

Sometimes a 'back up' is only the norm for that school. Your Marine will have a better idea of class starting once he checks in and gets the firsthand information.

My son will be going to Mos 2311 in a few weeks. Is there a status on the school as of now? Is it backed up?

Hi all!  My son will be starting in this school I believe in January!

Lately he has been training for the Sparain Run abd taking care of the stupid ones. I guess every Sunday they have a big cook out. They love my ribs and sauce.

Comment by SSgt75 on July 22, 2013 at 6:23pm

He just needs to keep in touch with his NCOs. They are the ones who know when each class starts, how many Marines are there for classes. If he bugs them nicely they may move him up to start sooner. Since it's an Army school about half of each class is army. Remind him that the instructors ARE watching what is going on and making notes. How he handles himself while alone and bored, what he finds to do with himself (studying, working, etc.). These are mostly young kids who are away on their on for the first time and they can find some very creative ways to get in trouble. We were lucky in being 2 hrs from the base we could come up and take him off base for liberty on weekends.

Thank you SSgt. Do you know if there is a way to find out when class picks up?

Iansdad - yes, it seems to be always that way at Ft. Lee. Not sure why. My son had to wait over 6 weeks up there - doing nothing until he got picked up for class. The actual school time is less than the wait time. I recommend that he start MCI courses or start reading books off the Commandant's Reading List and stay out of trouble.
