Thread: What Was Your Rank?

  1. #71
    I retired as an SFC. I took early retirement before they threw me out for medical reasons: I had/have an inoperable right carotid bifurcation aneurysm. Not to worry, I will be around to hound everyone for a long time!

All one needs to join it to have been a credentialed intel officer (military or civilian). What the 96B's (counter-intel) called B's & C's (badge and credentials--one was only badged if one had arrest authority.) My MOS was 96C (HUMINT). It gets complicated, but it was 96C, and then 97E and now is something different. I did strategic debriefing for DIA, so I got credentials but no badge.

    I'd like to add a little bit of clarification, if I may. One does not have to be, or have to have been, an officer to join. Persons of any rank or level may become Members:

    According to the AFIO web site:

    "Members - Current and Former U.S. intelligence, counterintelligence, military, law enforcement and related (e.g. security) personnel (any rank or level), may become Members.

    Associate Members - U.S. citizens in private, civil, academic or corporate pursuits, as well as, Americans currently in non-intelligence government employment (at any level) or other military service, may become Associate Members."

    Hey a SIGINT'er! Were you ever in the 311th or 265th on Ft Campbell? What language? Mine is Arabic.

    I just had to show a copy of my credentials. The separate ID Card with picture issued (in my case, being I was Army) by INSCOM identifing you as an Officer of US Army Intelligence (says it right on the top). It was not issued to me unitl I started to work with/for DIA to identify myself to sources. As 98's have a somewhat similar relationship to the NSA, I would assume yours would be from them. I will see if I can dig mine out and post a picture of them.

    As I was enlisted, it is for sure not limited to Commissioned Officers. I wouldn't sweat it; tell them your service dates and MOS, and if they must have something on paper, send them a copy of your DD214. That should do it.

    Hell, they even take civilians, so any MI person should be a shoe in!

    U FT. Huachuca 111th MI types used to fill the Community Care Clinic I ran my last year in service, great out-patient job to peel me off the hi-adrenaline ER I ran at Raymond W. Blisss Army Community Hospital for 3 years, now a clinic when I ran their Emergency Department. I swear there was more blood & guts on post than when we went off post to back up Sierra-Vista for MASCALs. Crazy fun place and I fell in love with the 111th, but did not hit it off well with the Signal folks. Even got a coin from the 111th Bde Cdr for processing 5K A.D. allied students, dependents and some retirees per month thru both joints. Dog days of a 20 year career in a decent assignment.
