Military Duties:

Marines in this MOS stay very busy and active daily. There are always supplies moving in and out of the supply warehouse that need to be tallied or distributed. Additionally, supply warehouses can occasionally be inundated with old supplies that have to be properly removed and disposed of.

Military Duties Translated:

Marines in the 3043 MOS learn a useful skillset of tracking and maintaining supply inventory and distribution. This is transferable to warehouse positions as well as possible careers as logisticians. Logistics are a major factor when it comes to managing and controlling supply chain, so with some basic college courses, marines leaving the 3043 MOS are more than equipped to handle a successful career as a logistician. Additionally, supply chain managers are in high demand and can earn a very lucrative salary after a few years of experience.
