    Can anyone help me? I cannot find anything on MSST or MSRT recruitment. Any info on what rate, or requirements to join one of these teams would be helpful. Maybe a contact e-mail of an actual team member. Thx

    I don't believe those organizations have billets for unrated Seamen or Firemen, so you wouldn't normally expect people to be sent there straight out of boot camp. Rather, one would put in for such an assignment after 'A' school or even later. But that's mostly supposition on my part. If you go to the TRACEN Cape May web page, click on 'Unit Information Sheets (UIS)', and then click on the various districts, you can find the information sheets for the various MSST's, etc., within each district. Some are more informative than others.<!-- Edit -->

Commander (CGPC-epm) will review the Discriminator Identification and Tracking System (Chapter 8.O) to determine the candidate’s eligibility.
