The main restricted MOS's would be those that deal with electronics, EOD, and aircraft pilot/crew chief. All of which deal with colors (wires,
lights) that must be recognised.
It will not stop you from being drafted. However, as there is NO draft, you are worrying about (or counting on) nothing.
Forgot to add:
Lefties do just fine with all issued equipment and weapons. In fact, the M16A2 has been designed to NOT bounce hot brass off your arm or face. Most
machine guns eject to the bottom, so lefty shooters have no trouble here either. The M249 ejects forward and to the right, missing anyone shooting
it....but peppering anyone forward and to your right with hot brass and links! Trucks/HMMWV's are NOT set up for left side driving, neither are most
armored vehicles...however, driving the M1A1 Abrams tank is perfect for a lefty, as nearly all controls are right in front of you.
