I don't know where you got that picture or if it has any relevance. I notice my former MOS is not on there. My MOS is one of the ones you might want. I was airborne, though my MOS wasn't usually airborne. I trained at FT Benning with the 82nd and 101st.
I don't have any contacts to know if this is real or not, but things are happening that I don't like. Lucky for me even if I did get called back I would have to have a new contract. Also lucky for me I would be way back from the front line.
Why do you think this is real?
Or a better question.. They are always trying to call us back so, is this different?

the us government is always ready for war and if there is none the us will start or cause one
that sounds more or less like the list of men you would need for a self sustaining airborne force (possibly a QRF given the need for airborne qualified troops)

Wait, who actually posted this? If it is truly a US military publication, then I assume it is saying that they are looking for any prior service members of a certain MOS, who could then come back to active duty. The 11's listed are infantrymen, 12B is a combat engineer, 13b is a cannon crewmember, with a "cannon" meaning a howitzer, 13D works with the data systems for artillery, 13R is a radar operator for artillery systems, 15S,T, and U are helicopter mechanics. My cousin works with blackhawks, which would be a 15T I believe. 19D is a scout. 25M is not a combat role, but is an illustrator. Not really sure what is up with that MOS being listed, lol. Although they can perform important tasks related to combat, such as making maps and charts. 25V is a similar production MOS. The 35's are all based on one of the various types of intelligence. 42 are related to human resources. 68W is a medic. 88N is the transportation coordinator, who basically handles freight shipments, documentation, etc... 89B are going to be the guys in charge of ammunition and ordinance, or bullets and explosives. 91B is a mechanic for trucks and stuff. 92A is logistics. Basically storing and keeping track of things in a warehouse, among other things. There are a variety of things that would have to be done in this MOS. 92F is a petroleum supply specialist. 92G is food service. 92L are the guys who perform lab tests on various petroleum products. 92W is water treatment. 92Y is supply. 94E is COMSEC repair. Basically they work on communications equipment, including all the parts associated with radios, and even cryptography equipment. I knew a lot of guys that were doing this when I was in the military, although I was in the air force, and we have AFSC's as opposed to MOS's. 94F is another communications-based repair job, although these guys work on a larger variety of systems.
So those are all of the jobs that were listed. Obviously there is a great variety among these MOS's. I am a bit confused on why many of these jobs would be "airborne qualified." The way I understand it this would mean you have been to airborne school, and I didn't think that some of these MOS's would require soldiers to receive such training. So unless I'm wrong, that seems kind of weird. I would also think that this would disqualify a whole lot of people.
Ironically the safest place to be when there is a war is the army!
