First off, if anyone thinks this post might be better served in a different area, please let me know.
Okay, I work with a university's police department which enables me to pursue my masters for virtually nothing and my desire is to join some type of military reserve unit for the duration of my schooling.
I wish to join the Army in some facet although I haven't been able to find an entry level reserve position that really excites me. At first I was interested in the Common Ground Surveillance Systems Operator (MOS 96R) but it appears that this MOS has been discontinued, much to my dismay.
I then became interested in the Army CID position but had that dream ripped away once I found out that 2 years prior service was absolutely mandatory.
My ultimate goal is to join the FBI but as I said, while I am working as university popo and pursuing my masters degree for the next two some odd years, I would really like to do something in the mean time, other than my full time job, that would really enhance my resume and make me much more competitive once I'm done with school and ready to apply with the bue. Hence the idea of joining the reserves in some fashion.
So my questions are, is there any chance that the Army CID prior service requirement could be waived, any chance at all?
Does anyone have any information on the old 96R MOS? Has the position simply been cut out or was its duties simply combined with another MOS?
Anyone have any suggestions as far as options regarding a criminal investigation/surveillance MOS/position that can be done part-time as with the reserves? Keeping in mind that it must be entry-level and something other than MP as I am already aware of that option and am considering it. Oh and preferably something more impressive than a P.I. as I am also considering that option.
Thanks in advance.
