35G5O - Skill Level Five

ranks_insignia_msg
 
Chief Intelligence Sergeant:  The Intelligence Senior Sergeant/Chief Intelligence Sergeant serves as the principal enlisted assistant to commanders and heads of staff elements, and as staff NCO for major commands, in multi-echelon, joint and combined intelligence organizations. Supervise intelligence surveillance, collection, analysis, processing, and distribution activities at all echelons. Supervise activities pertaining to organization and training of tactical and technical operations. Coordinate operating requirements of subordinate units with major supported units. Reviews, evaluates, prepares and executes intelligence assets, deployment, employment, and redeployment plans and orders. Supervise intelligence operations in Corps and echelon above corps (EAC) analysis and control elements (ACE). Reviews Intelligence doctrinal publications and prepares recommended changes. Compares modification Tables of Organization and Equipment (MTOE) and Tables of Distribution and Allowances (TDA) authorization documents with Intelligence missions and functions and recommends revisions.  The critical assignment for a MSG is First Sergeant. Without a tour as a First Sergeant, the opportunity for promotion to SGM is limited. It is beneficial for career development to serve as a First Sergeant for at least 24 months (may consist of one or more assignments).
 
First Sergeant:  When you are talking about the First Sergeant you are talking about the life-blood of the Army. There can be no substitute of this position, nor any question of its importance. When First Sergeants are exceptional, their units are exceptional, regardless of any other single personality involved. Perhaps their rank insignia should be the keystone rather than the traditional rank insignia. It is the First Sergeant with whom almost all unit operations merge. The First Sergeant holds formations, instructs platoon sergeants, advises the Commander, and assists in training of all enlisted members. The First Sergeant may swagger and appear, at times, somewhat of an exhibitionist, but he or she is not egotistical. The First Sergeant is proud of the unit and, understandably, wants others to be aware of the success of the unit. For the first time, the title of address for this grade is not sergeant, but First Sergeant. There is a unique relationship of confidence and respect that exits between the First Sergeant and the Commander not found at another level within the Army. In the German Army, the First Sergeant is referred to as the Parent of the Company. He or she is the provider, the disciplinarian, the wise counselor, the tough and unbending foe, the confidant, the sounding board, everything that we need in a leader during our personal success or failure.
 
ACE NCOIC:  Serves as the Intelligence NCOIC for the Analysis and Control Element (ACE) responsible for all intelligence operations in support of subordinate commands and worldwide contingency missions; leads, mentors, trains and develops enlisted Soldiers assigned to the ACE; coaches and advises the commissioned and warrant officers assigned to the ACE; interfaces with the company and battalion leadership to ensure all ACE personnel receive necessary administrative, fiscal and logistical support.

Deputy Commandant:  The Deputy Commandant keeps the NCO Academy running. The Military Intelligence NCO Academy trains leadership and technical skills to over 1,200 CMF 35 NCOs every year in ANCOC and BNCOC. In order for the Deputy Commandant to keep the NCO Academy running smoothly, he or she must direct and supervise the staff and cadre in all logistical, administrative, and academic operations. The Deputy Commandant is responsible for the mentorship of two First Sergeants and four Chief Instructors. Keeping the NCO Academy?s equipment, training facilities, barracks, and training relevant requires a vision for the future and planning.
