FORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. — Bravo Company, 305th Military Intelligence Battalion graduated 181 students, to include MOS-T (reclassification), National Guard, and Reserve Soldiers, from the 35F10 Intelligence Analyst Advanced Individual Training (AIT) course during a graduation ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park in Sierra Vista on April 5.
Guest Speaker, Command Sgt. Maj. Tammy M. Everette, U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence senior enlisted advisor, highlighted several points to the Army’s newest intelligence analysts graduating that morning. She asked the graduating Arctic Wolves Platoon to remember five objectives: be open to learning new things no matter what task you are given and execute it to the very best of your ability, do not underestimate the power of your voice, demand outstanding leadership and training, the climate and culture of an organization starts with you, and to not forget about Fort Huachuca.
“You represent the less than 10 percent of the American population that makes the decision to serve in the military, you represent eight percent of the 35F skill level 10 in the Army, and you represent three percent of the total 35F population in the Army,” Everette said. “Kind of a big deal.”
Everette also spoke on the Resiliency, Awareness, Prevention, Inclusion, & Diversity (RAPID) program that 25 of the graduating Soldiers participated in. The RAPID program was established to encourage bystander intervention to prevent harmless behaviors from spreading within our ranks. Everette stated that we have decreased harmful behaviors on Fort Huachuca by 53 percent and that Fort Huachuca is within the top three installations in the total Army with the least number of harmful behaviors because of Soldiers like them.
The students graduated at Veterans Memorial Park to build the relationship between the Fort Huachuca and Sierra Vista communities as well as promote to the local populace what the Army is all about. Local high schools from both Sierra Vista and Tombstone were invited to the event along with the local recruiting station.
This is the first time a 35F10 Intelligence Analyst AIT graduation has occurred off the installation and it was a great way to advertise the Army, the Military Intelligence Corps, and Fort Huachuca to the community.
The 35F10 Intelligence Analyst course is a 13-week long course that graduates Soldiers capable of performing 35F Intelligence Analyst entry-level competencies and introduces them to intermediate competencies to illustrate future performance expectations. Competencies include procedural and conceptual knowledge, skills and attitudes associated with performing as a 35F. Soldiers engage in theoretical and practical curriculum, developing their knowledge and skills as All Source analysts.
Upon graduation, each Soldier received the MOS 35F10, Intelligence Analyst, ready to provide actionable intelligence to their future commanders across the Army.
