MOS 87315 - Pipers

MOS 87315
When you read the fine print on the paperwork that ordered me to
active duty, you see the term “MOS 7315.” MOS stands for Military
Occupational Specialty, something that all active duty personnel are
assigned. You will have to do some digging because 7315 is no longer
an active MOS. However, you will find its description as “a small
chemical unit officer”.
This MOS essentially means I am knowledgeable in CBR warfare—
chemical, biological and radiological. The 8 stands for instructor,
which I acquired when I was teaching at the Chemical Corps school at
Ft. McClellan, AL. The ramifications of this MOS can start many a conversation.
