Introduction

Every veteran who served in the United States Armed Forces during the Korean War was assigned a Military Occupation Specialty or MOS number. This was the government's way of classifying military personnel in various jobs for payroll and other purposes. A complete definition of the MOS, found in the Introduction to Special Regulations SR 615-25-15, Enlisted Personnel Military Occupational Specialties, Department of the Army, November 1950, is described as follows:

"A military occupational specialty is the term used to identify an area of military job activities covering either one duty assignment or a group of duty assignments which require similar abilities for the performance of their significant tasks, and which may be performed either in whole or in part by an individual who is qualified to perform the entire group of tasks. An MOS is composed of a classification title, a numerical identification, and a job specification. The numerical identification is known as the MOS code, formerly called specification serial number (SSN)…. Duty assignments which basically involve the same kind of training, experience, techniques, and abilities, and the same relative degree of physical capability of enlisted personnel are classified together under a broad MOS. A single duty assignment which is so specialized that grouping with another duty assignment is not possible is recognized as an individual MOS. For example, General Clerk (4055) represents a broad classification and includes such duty assignments as mail delivery clerk, reports clerk, mimeograph operator, and file clerk, since they fall within the general area of skills, knowledge, and abilities which the MOS of General Clerk represents. On the other hand, the duty of Legal Clerk (1279) represents a specialized duty assignment not susceptible to grouping. An MOS classification represents or identifies a skill or group of related skills; it does not represent an individual's only skills nor does it indicate that an individual cannot learn other skills."

Thanks to the efforts of veterans Clyde Keene of Kearns, Utah, and Arthur Lajeunesse of Latham, New York, this page of the Korean War Educator provides the following MOS listings from the Korean War era:

  • US Army MOS titles and codes, enlisted personnel, 15 November 1950
  • Alpha Index - Areas of Specialization, enlisted career fields (Army)
  • MOS numerical listing for July 1944

Clyde Keene also provided other MOS information that has not yet been posted on the Korean War Educator. Additions to this page will come later.

Alpha Index - Areas of Specialization - Enlisted career fields (Army)
November 1950

The following information was supplied to The Korean War Educator by Clyde B. Keene of Kearns, Utah. Clyde was a member of A Company of the 43rd Construction Battalion at Camp Tokorozawa, Saitama Prefecture, Japan, when it went to Korea with the 14th E.B. He told The Korean War Educator, "I and several others were first assigned to the first 'A' Company (July 1949). Many of us were in Korea in 1948 for a full year, some arriving in 1947. We all departed in January of 1949 as a Depot Unit (599th Engineer Base Depot, located at Ascom City (Army Support Command), for Japan. All ended up at the 4th Replacement Depot at Camp Zama' Japan for reassignment. In May 1950, I reenlisted for six years and returned to H&S Company, filling a vacancy in my same MOS. 'A' Company departed in July for Camp McGill for embarking to Pohang-dong, Korea."

According to Special Regulations SR 615-25-20 "Enlisted Personnel CAREER FIELDS", published by the Department of the Army, November 1950, enlisted career fields served as the career patterns on which the personnel procedures of the enlisted career guidance program operated. They were the career outline within which enlisted personnel were classified, assigned, and advanced. They also served as the assignment framework in the peacetime army and mobilization establishment within which MOS assignment procedures operated. Areas of Specialization and Career Fields are separated by a dash. The Area of Specialization is listed first.

Numerical list of Military Occupational Specialties - 12 July 1944

[The following numerical list of Military Occupational Specialties from the 1944 time period was sent to The Korean War Educator by Arthur E. Lajeunesse of Latham, New York. Arthur was a rifleman with Item Company, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division in Korea from September 1951 to July of 1952. He ended up as a section leader in 60 mm mortars, 4th platoon. The numerical list originally came from Mr. & Mrs. Bob Hall, both retired schoolteachers who live in Scotia, New York. Bob served in the US Marine Corps in Korea. Mrs. Hall obtained the MOS list from the Library of Congress through the Freedom of Information Act.]
