The Marine Corps will conduct wargames to determine whether infantry jobs should remain specialized or be rolled into a single military occupational specialty (MOS). Infantry Marines are going to be operating in a more decentralized, distributed way in the future, and leaders will be relying on them to make more complex decisions.
Commandant Gen. David Berger has prioritized redesigning the Marine infantry battalion as part of a 10-year plan to modernize the Corps. He told lawmakers this week that future enlisted infantry Marines 'will be at a higher level than we're producing right now.' That will mean a longer training pipeline that will help prep grunts for making higher-level decisions. But whether infantry Marines will continue training for unique MOSs remains to be seen.
