About Military Occupational Specialties

The U.S. Army used alphanumeric codes (e.g., 11B10, Light Weapons Infantryman) to identify the Military Occupational Specialty (job) each person held. The MOS that a person was qualified in was called the PMOS (primary MOS), while the DMOS (duty MOS) was the job they actually held at a given time.

Different MOS coding systems were used for enlisted, warrant officers and officers:

  • Enlisted codes consisted of five digits. The first three (e.g., 11B) indicated the position while the fourth and fifth indicated the relative level:
    xxx10 - basic Infantryman (E1-E3) = 11B10
    xxx20 - specialist (Specialist 4th Class, E-4) = 11B20 (Note: some SP5s were 20s, e.g., 63B20, 91B20, 94B20)
    xxx30 - team leader, specialist (E-5) = 11B30 (A number of SP5 positions had "30" MOS codes, including 64C30).
    xxx40 - noncommissioned officer (Sergeant E-5, Staff Sergeant E-6, Sergeant First Class E-7) = 11B40
    xxx50 - senior noncommissioned officer (E-8, E-9) = 11B50 (or, as we shall see, 11B5M, first sergeant)

    Where the individual held a Special Qualification Identifier (SQI) for special training or skills, the last character was an alphabetic SQI Code that indicated the qualification (e.g., in 11B1P. the "P" indicates "parachutist")

  • Warrant Officer MOS Codes were also 5 digits, but the first four (e.g., 631A) indicated the position, with the last available for an SQI suffix.

  • Commissioned Officer codes were numerical; four digits indicated MOS (e.g., 1542, Infantry Officer) and an optional one digit SQI prefix indicated a special qualification (e.g., 71542, Jump-qualified Infantry Officer).

The U.S. Army changed the MOS coding structure sometime in the 1980s, so the MOS codes which we held are now part of history. While MOS codes can be useful especially when visiting the Wall or searching through the casualty database, they can be fairly hard to find these days.

Vietnam-era Special Qualification Identifiers

Enlisted and warrant officer MOS codes may end in "0", or may have a letter code attached to indicate special qualifications. Per DA Pam 611-21, the Special Qualification Identifier (SQI) character formed the fifth character (suffix) of enlisted and warrant officer Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) Codes. These included:




Inspector General Noncommissioned Officer


Civil Affairs


Military Mountaineer


Flight Status








First Sergeant (to differentiate from Master Sergeant E8)


Joint Planner


Parachutist, anyone awarded jump wings upon completion of Airborne School


Equal Opportunity Adviser


Army Recruiter (Career Counsellor) NOTE: Not certain of this SQI.


Special Operations (Special Forces)


Airborne Ranger


Drill Sergeant

With Commissioned Officers, the qualifier was a prefix, not a suffix. For example, "7" stands for Airborne. An Infantry Oficer is "1542", while an airborne infantry officer would have an MOS of 71542. Only one prefix was appended to an MOS, although PMOS and DMOS may carry different prefixes.




Special Forces


Army Recruiter


Nuclear Weapons Employment Specialist


Parachutist, anyone awarded jump wings upon completion of Airborne School
