GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Each year the Marine Corps human resource development process is synchronized through publication of ref (a). Ref (b) governs the process. Ref (a) 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 ref (a) was coordinated with the February authorized strength report.
1.a. The Fiscal Year (FY) 17 manual contains significant and numerous changes. A complete list of changes can be found in the conversion tables (chapters 2 and 4) of ref (a), which can be viewed on the website identified in para 5 below.
1.a.1. New officer MOSs were created in occupational fields (OccFld) 02, 75 and Free MOS (FMOS) 8623, and enlisted MOSs were created in OccFlds 03, 26, 55, 60, 80, and FMOS 8623.
1.a.2. Officer FMOS 7559 and FMOS 7561 have been deleted, and enlisted FMOS 2799, Primary MOS (PMOS) 6072, PMOS 6322, PMOS 7307, and PMOS 7321 have been deleted.
1.a.3. There are grade structure changes in officer OccFlds 05, 21, and 55, and grade structure changes in enlisted OccFlds 03, 73, and 87.
1.a.4. There are many changes to the summary, requirements, and prerequisites fields within the MOS manual in officer and enlisted OccFlds 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 08, 09, 11, 13, 18, 21, 26, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 44, 55, 58, 59, 60, 63, 64, 65, 66, 68, 70, 72, 73, 75, 80, 81, 86, 87, and 88.

1.b. 33 MOSs with a title that included the word “man” were reviewed to determine if those titles should be retained in light of the Secretary of the Navy memo to the Commandant of the Marine Corps (CMC) dated 1 January 2016.
