Does anyone know what my son needs to pack for warehouse clerk MOS school in Camp Johnson? He did not receive a packing list. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure what they are supposed to pack for school. My son went straight there from Camp Pendleton and took everything he owns. Which is everything he left boot camp with, along with any other stuff that he acquired over the past 5 months! I hope someone else has better information than me! Good luck!

Gene & MQTMom,

My son also went straight from Pendleton to Camp Johnson.  The only things he left behind after boot leave were letters and books.  Took all his other stuff straight from MCT to MOS.  Makes sense since he won't know for a while yet where the next orders will lead.  Hope this is timely and helps.

After MOS graduation, Marines travel on to their PDS. I think they are to take everything issued and purchased from boot.

Makes perfect sense...thanks a lot.1~Keri (HCC) said:

You're welcome!

Unless you are planning a visit to your Marine's MOS school. My son was only a few hours away so made a few visits. :)

Just tell him to keep in mind he is going to have to pack up when moving out and on to his PDS. Usually MOS schools don't class up right away and Marines are in need of something to occupy their time. He might check with the school about laptops or small DVD players (for movies). There is probably a charge for internet service. My son opted out of that as he was busy with other activities and duties.
