Marines Change Names of 19 Jobs - Remove "Man"

Infantry Marines on a Flight Deck
With the shift to open all military jobs to both men and women, the Marine Corps will be dropping the word "man" from 19 job titles - shifting to more gender-neutral terms for these jobs.

Not all jobs or classifications with "man" will be renamed, however. The terms "rifleman" and "mortarman" will remain as they are, since they are firmly established in the culture of the USMC. Some other uses of the word "man" will remain as well, such as "Manpower Officer", "Marksmanship Instructor", "Construction Wireman", and "Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operator". In most cases, the word "man" is replaced with the more inclusive term "Marine".

This change comes after Navy Secretary Ray Mabus ordered Gen. Robert Neller, the Marine Corps commandant, to end gender-segregated training in January. About the same time, in a separate memo, Secretary Mabus asked for a review of the MOS codes, citing "an opportunity to update the position title and descriptions themselves to demonstrate through this language that women are included".

Here is a complete list of the MOS names that are (and are not) being changed, as obtained by the Washington Post:

The Washington Post article also makes mention of the controversy surrounding this name change, with some Marines angry about the "politically-correct" nature of the change, and some unconcerned. At least one thinks that the Corps has more serious things to be worried about after transitioning from over a decade at war.

The Navy is currently considering name changes for certain occupations. Both the Army and the Air Force are not considering changing any occupation titles.
