Welcome Zekeian1!

The school and training is in Pensacola. It is my understanding and not a USMC statement, they will start in Pensacola and then when assigned to a specific aircraft be moved another location to complete training.

Where Marines are stationed depends on where they will be needed ('needs of the Corps'). It could be east coast, west coast or overseas (Japan).

Here is one discussion with some families sharing training information.

You can read a brief description of the flight crew MOS on the usmilitary.about site.
Basically they will assist in refueling, support on missions, help maintain loading equipment in the transport aircraft.

Hi my son will be going to boot camp in August and his mos is enlisted flight crew. I was wondering what this Mos does and where they go for training and are usually stationed
Thanks Kathy
