GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Each year the Marine Corps Human Resource Development Process is synchronized through publication of reference (ref) (A), the Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) Manual. Ref (B) governs the process. The manual defines occupational specialties found on tables of organization, identifies skills of Marines to meet organizational requirements, and otherwise provides information that enables the Marine Corps to carry out its assigned mission to organize, train, assign, and manage the force. The annual revision of the MOS Manual was coordinated with the February authorized strength report.
