FA training as MP
 Login/Join

What is the word on the street? Is all FA being converted to MP? How temporary/permanent is it? I am thinking about branching FA, but I want to know what the trend is before making a career decision.

Thanks in advance.

I know there are FA getting MP training for deployment. I wouldn't say ALL FA are going MP. :shock: Gotta have some FA.

I'm FA right now, and just wanted to say there's been rumors of alot of things, for instance, we were getting HIMARS, Then the A1's, then MP.....the list goes on, but regardless if you go to iraq, and you're FA, you will be everything, MP,Trans, Escorts...doesn't matter, but yeah we have to have some FA.

Thats a bit crazy of an idea right now. While the role of artillery is not what it used to be, the need for it has not totally gone away. Like was stated earlier, yes, deploying to Iraq, you will get some MP training. But as far as reclassing the entire Field into MP, I don't think so.

The day they won't let me be a Red Leg is the day I get out of the Army.

Got some updated information. A chunk of the ARNG FA is going to be reclassed as MP and CA. With the like 20+ ARNG FA Brigades, there is no longer a use for that much artillery. They are looking at making the ARNG a more capable force.
