ARMY Marine Deck Officer?

Hi everyone,

I’m a Navy vet of 7 years currently in my second year at TMA. I’ve recently been made aware of the Army’s Marine Deck Officer CWO MOS. Does anyone know if this career field can lead to an unlimited mate’s license? From what I heard licenses can be earned with this route. I’ve been itching to get back to the military life and this may be the path best for me. Thank you all for your time.


The MDO mos usually leads to a 500 or 1600 GRT license. Getting sea time on vessels large enough for an AGT license may be a problem. Talk to them at Ft. Eustis, they are pretty knowledgeable.
