From 1996 to 2001, David Missita served as an expeditionary airfield systems technician in the United States Marine Corps. The title “expeditionary airfield systems technician” refers to a military occupational specialty (MOS) in the Marine Corps. Marines like David Missita are each assigned an MOS that determines the specific role that they will fulfill while serving in the military.

Military occupational specialties in the Marine Corps are grouped into occupational fields according to the type of work that they require. Occupational fields range from the well-known infantry specialties to lesser-known specialties such as traffic management, public affairs, and food service. In addition to the regular duties performed by all marines, each marine regularly performs the tasks associated with the individual MOS assigned. The technical training given to each marine for his or her particular specialty allows the Marine Corps to perform the wide variety of tasks and activities related to its day-to-day functions.
