(This is a perfect example of why I posted this. It's always good to have someone else read your stuff to spot errors. Thanks for catching this, Kato.)

No need for apologies. In any volume of work mistakes are going to creep in. Thanks for sharing your work.

Glad I could be an additional set of eyes.

As previously promised, some additional information regarding certain careers in the United States Marine Corps. As with the civilian and Army careers I posted above, this information is tailored to my personal campaign and you will need to scrutinize it closely to make sure it fits in your version of the game. (I tend to run more lethal games, so I give the players more to work with as a balancer).

This information (in some cases) replaces information in the T2K v2.0 rule set, so a careful examination of this material will be helpful to the reader. This information mirrors life itself, as both are a work in progress.

Suggestions for accurate portrayal of the MOS's discussed are welcomed. This information only covers the USMC and I will post what little information I have regarding the Air Force, and Navy as time permits.

Please note that, in some cases, this information replaces what is in the rulebook, and in others, repeats what is present. My inclusion of the original information is, in no way, a challenge to whomever holds the copyright on the Twilight: 2000 property.

In closing, let me apologize in advance if anyone is offended or upset by my phrasing or interpretation of the MOS's discussed.

With all that being said, I offer the following:

UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS

Add the following to the Marine Careers List.

United States Marine Corps Basic Training
Entry: Strength + Agility + Constitution: 15+, no prison record.
Basic Training: The character receives the following skills as part of his basic training:
● Small Arms (Rifle): 2
● Small Arms (Pistol): 2
● Melee Combat (Armed): 1
● Melee Combat (Unarmed): 1
● Thrown Weapon: 1
● Heavy Weapons: 1
● Swimming: 1
● Medical: 1
● Navigation: 1
Careers: Available careers and arms are the same as the Army, except no ranger, airborne, or special forces careers exist.
Special: Characters with Intelligence and Education of 7+ may enter OCS. If they do so, they receive a level 1 Leadership skill, are commissioned as 2nd lieutenants, and then conduct their first term normally.
A character with Education: 5+ and Intelligence: 5+ may become a warrant officer. If so, the character enters the Warrant Officer Candidacy School (WOCS), receives Leadership: 1, Instruction: 1, and Persuasion: 1, then conducts her first term normally. Warrant officers can be members of the following branches: Artillery, Aviation, Special Forces, Engineering, Support, Intelligence, Medical, Quartermaster, and Transportation.

WARRANT OFFICER RANK PROGRESSION TABLE

Other Marine MOS's are similar enough to use Army skill sets.

If anyone has any suggestions, please don't hesitate to offer them.

Regards,
Goon

At least in US Army infantry units, Chaplain's Assistants are simply infantrymen with some extra religious ceremony training. They are, however, the most heavily-armed men in the battalion -- they're the Chaplain's bodyguards, remember.

This is what my research has borne out, as well. Given that, this particular character type would seem to be redundant.
