How can we reverse geocode MGRS (military grid reference system) strings in ArcMap?

MGRS strings use alphanumeric notation to identify a location on the earth.

For example, I have 34TCK9320739642. How can I get the address (city, state, name, country, etc.)?

    You might have to do it in 2 steps. Convert the MGRS to lat/lon, then find the address. – mkennedy Feb 14 '17 at 20:11

    Close votes, really? What's hard to understand in the question? – mkennedy Feb 14 '17 at 20:13
  • It might help if the question gave the meaning of the Military Grid Reference System acronym in the question body. – Vince Feb 14 '17 at 20:15
  • There is a tag that someone can look up... b-> . – mkennedy Feb 14 '17 at 20:17
  • I didn't vote to close it. The confusion might also involve what "Name" might be extracted. Given that MGRS strings describe a rectangle, not a point, handling multiple matches needs to be considered. – Vince Feb 14 '17 at 20:21
