Military Intelligence – this week in history: October 4, 2012


MI officer training consolidated

Oct. 1, 1982

An Intelligence Organization and Stationing Study ratified by the Army leadership in 1975 paved the way for the eventual consolidation of military intelligence training at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School, which had been located at Fort Huachuca since 1971. The U.S. Army Intelligence School at Fort Devens, Mass., had been responsible for all intelligence and electronic warfare training for both officer and enlisted personnel, with help from its two detachments at Goodfellow Air Force Base, San Angelo, Texas, and Corry Station, in Pensacola, Fla. Meanwhile, USAICS taught MI Officer Basic and Advanced Courses in addition to courses in combat intelligence, tactical reconnaissance, and surveillance and counterintelligence.

A Training and Doctrine Command-directed Review of Education and Training for Officers, a comprehensive look at the jobs an MI officer performed, reinforced the need for all-source intelligence officers, and concluded that instruction in all officer specialties would best be accomplished in a single location — a revised MI Officers Basic Course at Fort Huachuca. Therefore, USAICS took over Specialty 37 (Signal Intelligence and Electronic Warfare) officer training from Fort Devens in 1982.

This move consolidated all MI Officer training at Fort Huachuca.
