MOS specifications for WWII USMC?
Posted 29 March 2012 - 12:49 AM
I'm trying to figure out the MOS for a WWII Marine. The MOS reads 501 but I can't seem to figure out what this stands for. Does anyone havea good link or resource for decoding WWII USMC MOS codes?

You can also check this answer from a Col. Lynn which explains how to get the information.
"Dear Hubert Ryan,
The following information was provided by the U.S. Naval Historical Center at 202-433-4132: call the U.S. National Archives at 301-837-3510 and request a copy of NAVMAC 1008-PD. A archivist also said to me that located in the archives are the U.S. Navy Bureau of Personnel or BUPERS records which contain both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps MOS listing. You want to request Record Group 24 BUPERS and Record Group 127-U.S. Marines. The FAX for the U.S. National Archives is 301-837-1752. The web site for the U.S. National Archives is the following: National Archives and Records Administration. If you are requesting by letter, the following information is needed: complete mailing address, daytime telephone number, and specify the request in detail. Send the letter to:
Textual Records Reference Staff of the National Archives

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.
