Enlisted Actions

We have completed the first year of the new century. It seems just a short while ago that I joined OCMI and stepped into a rapidly paced environment undergoing some radical changes. We had just completed the Functional Review and the Functional Assessment Analysis. The new Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle A powered, aerial vehicle that does not carry a human operator, uses aerodynamic forces to provide vehicle lift, can fly autonomously or be piloted remotely, can be expendable or recoverable, and can carry a lethal or nonlethal payload.  (TUAV TUAV Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle ) had just been selected after undergoing a "fly-off" here at Fort Huachuca. The OCMI's lifecycle managers were putting the final touches to the Military Occupational Classification Structure (MOCS MOCS Managed Object Conformance Statements (ITU-T M 3000)
MOCS Military Occupational Classification and Structure
MOCS Microsoft Official Curriculum Seminar
MOCS Multichannel Ocean Color Sensor
) for implementation upon the publication of the Notification of Future Changes (NOFC NOFC New Oxford Fire Company (New Oxford, Pennsylvania)

). We had settled on an Ml force structure embedded within the Initial Brigade Combat Team The brigade combat team (BCT) is the basic deployable unit of maneuver in the US Army. A brigade combat team consists of one combat arms branched maneuver brigade, and its attached support and fire units. . A great deal has happened in the last year and much more is sure to follow.

Many of you have already heard about the MI Corps vision of the future and the changes that are forthcoming within the 98 CMF. On 11 December 2000, the 111th and 112th MI Brigades, including the Noncommissioned Officers Academy (NCOA NCOA National Change Of Address (USPS)
NCOA National Council On the Aging
NCOA Nuclear Receptor Coactivator
NCOA National Corvette Owners Association
NCoA New Care-Of Address
NCOA Non-Commissioned Officer Academy
), Futures, and OCMI briefed the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and Fort Huachuca (USAIC&FH) on the proposed implementation of the 98 CMF merger. Major General John 0. Thomas, Jr., concurred with proceeding to merge the functionality of MOS 98J (Electronic Intelligence [ELINT Noun 1. ELINT - intelligence derived from electromagnetic radiations from foreign sources (other than radioactive sources)
electronics intelligence
] Interceptor/Analyst) (the technical ELINT functions) with 98K (Signals collection/Identification Analyst) creating the new multimode MOS, 98Y. Additionally, the 98J operational ELINT functions will merge into MOS 98C (Signals Intelligence [SIGINT Noun 1. SIGINT - intelligence information gathered from communications intelligence or electronics intelligence or telemetry intelligence
signals intelligence
] Analyst).

There is still a great deal of coordination necessary as we discuss changing each affected billet with the appropriate major Army commands. The effective date of implementation will follow in an NOFC published in the October 2001 period. Follow-on considerations to create the multifunctional MOS are ongoing with further details not yet ironed out. A team from Fort Huachuca will visit and apprise the field of these changes specifically and how they affect the CMF and the soldiers holding those MOSs.

OCMI continues to work with MI Branch, the School House, and the field on all MOS issues including accessions, training, retention, incentives, and promotion issues related to Star MOSs [1]. All 13 of our MI MOSs have incentives for enlistment, reenlistment, or both to assist in our endeavors to provide commanders and senior enlisted leaders qualified soldiers to the field.

MI Branch has been extremely successful in brokering the Ml Corps position with incentive monies for our soldiers. This year, however, the Army has taken a significant decrement To subtract a number from another number. Decrementing a counter means to subtract 1 or some other number from its current value.  in incentive money, and we are no longer able to shift incentive money from one MI MOS to another MI MOS. Now, all Army MOSs compete for the same shared funds.

One of our greatest concerns is the issue involving Star MOSs. As of December 2000, we have 10 of our 13 MI MOSs listed as Star MOSs for the Sergeant and/or Staff Sergeant ranks. Only 96U (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle [UAV] Operator), 97E (Human Intelligence Collector), and 98G (Cryptologic cryp·tol·o·gy

 Linguist) MOSs are not listed as Star MOSs. Leaders must take a close look at their respective organizations and determine whether the Specialists and Sergeants in their units who are eligible for promotion based on time-in-grade and time-in-service are deserving of that next promotion. If so, units must board these soldiers for promotion to assist in filling those authorizations. If commanders board these readily eligible soldiers, the Army would select them for promotion almost immediately (within 90 days) to fill those vacant authorizations.

Lifecycle managers will work the next MOCS inputs through March 2001. Some of the issues we expect to address in the current MOCS cycle (beyond the 98 CMF merger recommendations discussed above) are-

* Changes in duty title for the 33W (Electronic Warfare/Intercepts Systems Repairer) MOS as recommended by the Critical Task Site Selection Board CTSSB CTSSB Critical Task Site Selection Board (Army Training Development term) ).

* Modification of the 33W grade structure as a result of the TUAV fielding.

* Additional skill identifier (ASI ASI,

) S9 concerns and requirements we develop as the 11-week National Imagery Association Course for the 96D (Imagery Analyst) MOS.

* A new ASI that will replace the old ASI of 2T for the 10-week Tactical Exploitation System (TES) Course.

* Structure changes affected by the fielding of the TUAV and Common Ground Station (CGS) systems.

In all, the last year was extremely busy. This year does not appear any different as we forge ahead with the changes for the future. I would like to take this opportunity to formally bid farewell to OCMI's 33W Career Lifecycle Management Noncommissioned Officer (NCO), Master Sergeant John Zehmisch, who retired, and hail his replacement, Sergeant First Class Roger Bonesteel.

Warrant Officer Actions

The Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel has approved a proposal from the OCMI to establish a new warrant officer MOS 350U (TUAV Operations Technician). The feeder MOS will be 96U. The TUAV Operations Technician will be the primary advisor to the Commander on all aspects of TUAV employment and operation. The final details on personnel authorizations are undergoing completion, and we expect that the March 2001 Warrant Officer Accession Board will make the first selection. The U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC USAREC United States Army Recruiting Command ) is currently accepting applications for MOS 350U TUAV Operations Technecian.

All current information on application procedures and prerequisites is available on the U.S. Army Recruiting Command homepage at http://www.usarec.army.mil/hq/warrant/Warrant.htm. Readers with questions can also call Chief Warrant Officer Five Rex Williams via E-mail at rex.williams@hua. army.mil and telephonically at (520) 533-1183 or DSN 821-1183.

During recent years, the Army has undertaken several initiatives to reduce field grade officer and captain authorizations to meet Defense Officer Personnel Management Act ceilings. On 7 September 2000, the Army Vice Chief of Staff approved several proposals to include the downgrade of 164 Modified Table of Organization and Equipment A table of organization and equipment (TOE) is a document published by the U.S. Department of Defense which prescribes the organization, manning, and equippage of units from divisional size and down, but also including the headquarters of Corps and Armies.  battalion S2 positions.

The Department of the Army Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Plans sent implementing instructions in a message date-time group 31 0422Z October 2000.
