    Hey all,

    I'm qualified on paper for DCIO. I'm more interested in the reserves. Also qualified for SRDC, how do rates work through that program? Does Intel even exist on the reserve side? It's what I'm most interested in doing offer-side.

    From my experience as enlisted at Sector Command Centers I have seen a few reserve intel officers. It was when I was in Philadelphia, they would usually come in on their weekend and do their secret squirrel thing. Have you contacted a recruiter?

    I have not, I am currently transitioning out of AD Army and am looking at some opportunities, I've always admired the CG. I've read that CG Reserve (and AD) officers are generalists, are intel officers an exception to that? I'm mainly trying to find out if reserve officers have any career control and how that might work. Thanks!

    Hello again. As a Reserve officer, you'll only be assigned to ashore units. You could start at a Sector, working in Prevention or Enforcement, then your next tour might take you to a Port Security Unit (PSU). After this you may end up in an Intel billet, perhaps next would be a staff assignment. Something to know about officer assignments is that, unlike enlisted, you're subject to assignment anywhere in the US....and travel is on your dime.
