Abstract:

The U.S. Army has come to rely increasingly on citizen soldiers formally known as soldiers from the Reserve Components RC. Given President Bushs announcement that the current war on terrorism will last for several years the U.S. Army will need enough Army National Guard Military Intelligence MI soldiers to fight this long-term war. The U.S. Army will need to reexamine how it can provide a sufficient number of qualified MI soldiers to defeat terror organizations. With incidents at Abu Ghraib Detention Facility demonstrating how important training of RC soldiers is effective reclassification training is the cornerstone of providing qualified ARNG for mobilization. The two key military intelligence military occupational specialties that have tremendous impact at the strategic level of intelligence are the Counter Intelligence Agent 97B and Interrogator 97E. This examination includes a review of the military occupational specialty MOS reclassification qualification-training program for MI. The sheer operations tempo of the Army requires it to explore alternatives to provide non-resident MI Military Occupational Skill Qualification MOSQ training to its Army National Guard soldiers before they go to war.
