Hello, I've got a question or two about both of these MOS's. My recruiter was vague at best and bad mouthed MP's like they were the spawn of Satan. First, if you could enlist again and start over (knowing what you know now) which one would you sign on for? Military Police or Infantry? The recruiter stated that MP's are basically Infantry with a badge. Alot of the jobs (apparently things like checking ID's or guarding things) are done by both MOS's. While I realise that chances are I wouldn't start off driving a patrol car around base, what job specific things do MP's do? I'm aware that the Marines and the Army are two different branches, but does the Army have the same problem with tattoo's that the Marines apparently have? I've got tattoo's on both upper arms and one side of my chest. None of them are below my elbow and none of them are subversive. I found this part. Thanks for your help. Wanna kill these ads?
