USMC Leadership - Knowledge
Knowledge: There is a Service knowledge that every Marine will have to know, but further there is your Channel of Expertise in your Military Occupational Standards MOS that are specific and unique to your training and technical background. For me, that was intelligence analysis and linguistics – while my language skill is in Russian – I have extensive training in communicating across cultures with translators, interpreters, software, and non-verbal communication tactics; I have been able to help troops communicate when deploying into regions of Iraq and Afghanistan – while speaking neither of those languages. You are to be the Subject Matter Expert (SME) in your lane of travel, lives depend upon it.
