I'm a non infantry MOS, my contract is under equipment/vehicle repair, under this equipment/vehicle repair program lay two fields of which I can be places in, Motor T and 13xx (engineer, construction, facilities and equipment field). My recruiter said I'll most Likely be places in the 13xx field. In that field j can be anywhere from welder To construction vehicle operator. If im in Motor T I'll be a mechanic.

The Marines are going back to the Pacific. Major plans for basing in Guam & Australia are underway. As forces draw down, they will be the first to leave Afghanistan starting next year. Your job? Very possible. 10 years worth of gear & vehicles have to be shipped back to the US.

Unless Ron Paul gets elected, your chances of going to Iran are very high.

You think they don't need mechanics in Afghanistan? They don't ship that kind of stuff back to the states for repairs.
