[USMC] I am going to enlist in the Marines, but I don't want to be a pogue/POG. What do I need to do?

Are grunts solely infantry? Does that mean that any non-infantry combat arms (artillery, armored, combat engineers, EOD?) are POGs? I recognize the value of every job in the Marine Corps, but that's not what I want to be. I want to come out without the stigma of being a POG, so I will do everything in my power to avoid this.
And good lord, please no lectures about going to college or not wasting my life.
