Loved it. Hated it. Did many enjoyable challenging things, did many stupid/repetitive/boring/dirty things. Given the opportunity to do it all over again... I would not change my MOS (well maybe if I could have gotten a cav scout slot).

Of course, it isn't an MOS but the closest answer is:
1100 General Unrestricted Line (Gurl)
2775 Security and Law Enforcement Officer, ashore
Pretty much loved my LE duties......my ship time, averaged, would probably come to mediocre.

This is a staged photo from a dog and pony show at Camp Pendleton in 1993 (maybe 1994) but it displays essentially what we did. I took the photo; that's Sgt. Steiner on the ramp. I shook hands with the Commandants of the U.S. Marine Corps, Philippine Marines, and R.O.K. Marines (and their wives) that day.
