MI Soldiers sought for special operations, team to brief here next week

U.S. Army Special Operations Command

The United States Army Special Operations Command, or USASOC, seeks qualified military intelligence Soldiers to fill various intelligence positions within the command. USASOC Soldiers serve in the seven Special Forces Groups, 75th Ranger Regiment; 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, or SOAR; 95th Civil Affairs Brigade; and the Military Information Support Operations command, or MISOC.

A team from USASOC will visit Fort Huachuca to present information briefings to interested Soldiers on Wednesday, 6 p.m., in the 309th Military Intelligence Battalion Conference Room and again on Thursday, 6 p.m., in Ice Hall, Room 135, at the Non-commissioned Officers Academy.

USASOC intelligence Soldiers provide focused single source and all-source analytical support tailored to unconventional warfare and surgical strike missions. Once accepted, Soldiers are assigned to units that perform these missions daily or in preparation for contingencies and operational deployments with a worldwide focus. Soldiers will help drive future U.S. operations of potentially national significance.

Service in the ranks of USASOC requires personnel who have drive, technical and tactical competence, flexibility and problem-solving abilities as Soldiers often operate with little guidance and will often be responsible for decision-making well above their rank. Benefits of working within USASOC include:

  • Regional focus for special forces, civil affairs and MISOC
  • World-wide focus for 75th Ranger Regiment and 160th SOAR
  • Opportunities to conduct conventional and unconventional intelligence operations
  • Typically shorter deployments than other units
  • Ability to focus on the job specialty with limited distractions
  • Unique training opportunities
  • Well equipped and resourced
  • Increased competitiveness for promotions to senior noncommissioned ranks

Interested Soldiers must: be private first class through staff sergeant (or see higher rank information below); volunteer; serve in military occupational specialties, or MOS, 35F, 35G, 35L, 35M, 35N, 35P or 35T; have a General Testing score of at least 100; have no profiles or duty limitations that prevent taking and passing the standard Army Physical Fitness Test or conduct of Airborne operations (glasses are acceptable); be a U.S. citizen; be airborne qualified or volunteer for airborne training; have two remaining years of service or reenlist to meet service remaining requirement; not be in financial difficulty; possess a top secret security clearance; and not on assignment instructions or orders at the time of application.

Those who meet the above pre-requisites, are interested in USASOC opportunities and have chain-of-command approval should see their career counselor, S1/G1 or MOS branch manager to inquire about available open requisitions.

Those who hold the rank of staff sergeant (promotable) or above, meet the above pre-requisites and are in interested in USASOC opportunities, email g.patti@ahqb.soc.mil with your MOS in the subject line and include your Social Security number. Soldiers with questions about USASOC opportunities should also send inquiries to the same email address or attend either of the two scheduled briefings.
