Every MOS has a specific number of positions authorized. This framework
provides the structure for those who have been awarded the MOS. All personnel working
in an MOS need to be familiar with the duties of their MOS at each level of skill. Most of
the positions authorized are at skill levels one and two. The 91R, at these skill levels,
inspects food designated for consumption. Food inspection responsibilities are
performed whether assigned to a TDA unit or a TOE unit. At skill levels three, four, and
five, the 91R is assigned to supervisory positions for veterinary service units. A brief
sketch of the responsibilities of each skill level follows (see figure 2-1).
