What the fuck do these guys do? I sat next to some dude on my flight back from TAD who claimed this MOS, anyone wanna tell me what they do? From what he did share it has something to do with escorting Fallen Marines. Is it permanent CACO duty?

I did something similar in Iraq with the hospital at Al Asad. Humbling experience to say the least. Props to anyone who chooses to do this. I still have issues with some of the stuff I did and saw.
