I am an Army Recruiter. This MOS has been around for a long time. I find it very amusing that it is now just being brought forth to the community now.
There are so many other noteworthy subjects than the existence of a prison gaurd MOS when it comes to military subject matter. This is being done to
further stoke the already burning fires over the recent NDAA issue. Of course there is a detention MOS. Yes there are camps being built. What did you
think they were going to do build a bunch of prisons and have nobody to man them?
Right now the state of recruiting is at a recent high. For new enlistees and recruits the selection of MOSs available has been very slim. Mostly
infantry and artillery have been the big must fill positions. Howevery as an interesting note I did notice that there was a whopping 10 positions for
31E the same day Alex Jones broke the KBR information. Not enough to staff even a single cell block in my opinion, but interesting none the less.
My point is that this story has a disingenuous feel to it for the purposes of fearmongering. It is almost like watching someone make a pizza and then
acting suprised when they put cheese on it. The Army has always had a prison gaurd MOS. To get excited over this would be like saying "The Army has
this MOS 92G Cook so they can feed the soldiers when they impose martial law". Or "The army has this new MOS 88M Motor Transportation Operator so
they can truck everybody off to the FEMA camp."
But I know that it is the nature of our community to get worked up over the obvious sometimes so here is a brief history of the MOS:
Until 2003 it was designated 95C Corrections Specialist
In 2004 they redesignated Career Management Field series from 95 to 31 for all MP related MOSs
So in 2004 it became MOS 31E Corrections Specialist
They renamed the 31 Echo Military Occupational Specialty from "Corrections Specialist," to Internment/Resettlement Specialist in order emphasize its
shift from working as guards in military prisons to guarding Enemy Prisoners of War overeas. It was also done to symbolize the massive overhauling of
the 31E MOS after the Abu Ghraib scandal. This is in no way a new position, just a name-change for one that has existed for decades.
Now do I believe that there are camps going up....yes
Do I believe that the NWO is engineering a takeover of the US and may use martial law when it needs to...absolutely!
A majority of us who frequent this forum feel the same way about the subject of TPTB getting ready for some kind of event that will allow for the use
of martial law and detention facilities. That in and of itself is the big picture here. The existence of an Internment/Resettlement Specialist MOS is
a mute point after that.
