    Please forgive me guys if this is answered somewhere else.  I'm a prior service Marine reservist with a combat arms background.  Seriously considering doing the reserves with a PSU that's about 6 hours from me(I live in Houston, TX).  I've already made contact with the PSU recruiter for that state and he's willing to bring me in.  However, I'm trying to find out if there are MSST reservists in Galveston, TX and if so, what ratings would qualify to be in the MSST?  I'm not sure how the ratings go with units like the PSU/MSST.  Are those units more like "B" billets with everyone having an original "A" school rating for something else? And what schools are required for both?  Sorry for all the questions guys I'm just pretty psyched to figure this stuff out and make a decision.  The recruiter for my area said only two ratings are available here: admin and science tech or something like that.  I only want to do PSU or MSST but would rather be MSST especially since they are closer.  Help me out guys I know I just bombarded you.

    Hello, im in PSU-301 (cape cod, MA) there are many Rates at a PSU the best that would fit you would be: maritime enforcement specialist (ME), gunners mate (GM), or boatswains mate (BM) all 3 require going to "A" school regardless of prior service experience. I believe ME "A" school is the shortest at 6 weeks long? Not to sure it's been a few years.

    You obviously know your weapon systems so Being a GM would come naturally and you'd be a asset to the unit. GM is a fancy word for armorer

    If you want to be on the operations side of the house ME would be your next logical choice Considering that they train at Camp lejune, NC at the special missions training center.

    After ME would come BM. BMs deal less with weapons then MEs but still deal with them a lot. And make up the majority of the unit that operate on the boats. However there are a few MEs that do as well.

    I wish I had some information for MSST but I don't know much about them but I believe the primary rates are ME and BM.
