ive been an engineer with 2D CEB for 3 yrs bust ur as in country and chill back here in garrison. and for combat gotta get with a line platoon in a COMBAT ENGINEER BATTALION like in Camp lejuene NC.

A combat engineer performs many duties including demolitions. contruction. route clearing.( urban and terrian).

I was thinking about doing combat engineer, the one thing that will decide it is whether or not I would see combat. I really want to see combat. If you dont see combat as a combat engineer then im not interested.

When in doubt, choose Combat Arms, do two years as a grunt, then re-up and choose a speciality school or even apply for OCS. I am a Marine Corps Veteran. The first two years are your orientation and observation period, make an informed career choice after two years leaining Gunnery. It will make you look even more desirable for speciality schools with “Grunt” in your file.

MY SON JUST FINISHED BOOT CAMP AND IS OFF TO COMBAT TRAINING. AFTER THAT HIS MOS IS COMBAT ENGINEERING. CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW LONG THAT TRAINING IS?


military dot image Ward    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

USMC999: Even if you’re not with an Infantry unit, you will still see combat. No matter who you’re with, a combat engineer will get some kind of action.

Chris Marine DAD: Combat Engineer school, or CEIC, is only two months long and goes pretty fast. However classes can get full and he could get put into a later class. I was only there an extra month at most.

military dot image Andrew    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

hey my name is drew and i signed for the marines a few months ago. my mos that i chose is combat engineer. i know that there are three main jobs in the combat engineer field. their is division,Field Service Support Group and Marine Air Wing. i wanted to know which one youwould see the most combat in. do you also get to choose where you want to go in those three fields, or is it just where they want you to be? if you get assigned to a field where you dont want to be can you change it? also how long do you get to stay in that specific field of duty before they move you? i really want to be in the CEB and get attached to infantry platoons. What are the chances that i can be a division engineer in a CEB?

I WAS A COMBAT ENGINEER FROM 1966-1971. 1968 VIETNAM I CORP 1 I LOVED IT. WAS WITH 1/ 9 AND 2/4. BESIDES BLOWING THING UP. AND.BUILDING THINGS ALSO SEEN COMBAT. I LOVED TO HEAR ENGINEER UP. GOOD PICK 1371


military dot image CPL Pankey    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

I’m an active duty 1371, i love this MOS, To answer some of the questions on here, if you are part of CEB you are in the division, if you go to CAB you will be part of Division, If you go MLG you will more then likely be in a support element, Like and ESB. As for what you do as an engineer it depends on what unit you are with, I’ve done everything from Bridging and boat operations, to patroling and route clearence to swinging a hammer to demolitions and house/room clearing… in my personal opinion its the best MOS in the Corps, but its not for everyone… so make sure you really want it before commiting. If youj have anymore questions you can ask here or see your local Marine recruiter!

military dot image Sapper One    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

Combat engineers, If you want to see combat you go division, its just a luck of the draw (no females).
If your recruiter told you all do you is blow shit up and build schools, he lied to you. The mos (Division Side only) is something to be proud of. you work your ass off day and night. you do any job ask from you. But it doesn’t end there, if your division, you are still asked to perform the 03xx duties; That means going on patrols, shooting rockets, standing post, being a rifle man and going door to door killing the enemy. Not only that but you are required to know knowledge as big as the bible. Anything from Demo, Urban combat, mine warfare, Infantry tactics and your shitty stuff like building. If your lucky enough you’ll sleep in the mud, hunt your own food, and call the wingers and groupies a Joke. -Dont forget, in Garrison you are just a working party for everything.

In addition they say hcg can help you be able to stick to the dietary plan, moreover causes one’s body with the intention to drop alot more entire body fat. Thanks, hcg.

Many 1371s never went to ES during the Nam days.OJT was the training,you learned from the old heads how to do it and perfect it better.The old heads were usually 19,20 and 21 YOs.Very common to be with 03s all the time in Vietnam and travel from I Corps from one end to the other.Marine engineers were in every operation in Nam,notably Hastings and Prarie in 66 TF Delta,one platoon served with the 4/503RD/173/AB,on Operation Winchester Oct.66-Dec.66 when the 4TH Bn. assumed the TAOR around DaNang.Marine engineers did patrols and ambushes LPs and OPs and personal experience fired many rounds from my rifle and M60 at the enemy.We also used M79s,and M72LAWs and did EOD work as well.It was a very interesting time for Marine Engineers.
