New in 2021: The final year for Marine tankers | Marine Corps Times

Marine Corps decided to get rid of Marine tankers for good this 2021. An estimated 800 Marines in a tank-related military occupational specialty were given the option to swap jobs or, if they had 15 years retire early. But in December, the Corps posted an official administrative message that allowed enlisted and officer tank MOS holders to end their contracts one year early. The decision is to align on major force redesign efforts and push through on funding to more advanced weapons systems.
