  • ASM Air Assault Incentive Program

    MEMORANDUM FOR the Recruiting & Retention Force of all States, Puerto Rico,
    The Virgin Islands, Guam and the District of Columbia.
    Subject: ASM Air Assault Incentive Program

    ASM Air Assault Incentive Program

    Effective 15 December 2008 ASM will launch the new pilot Air Assault
    Recruiting and Retention initiative for FY 09. This initiative is developed
    through a partnership between ARNG Strength Maintenance (ASM) Division and
    ARNG Warrior Training Center (WTC). The objective of this Incentive is to
    provide a unique and challenging program which will entice, motivate and
    challenge soldiers to join and remain in the ARNG. The primary objective of
    the initiative is to combat first term losses in order to retain a quality
    force. Second the incentive is designed to be an accession tool to attract
    quality Prior Service (PS) and Non-Prior Service (NPS) applicants to increase
    ARNG end strength.

    The first course will begin 9 March 2009 at Warrior Training Center, Fort
    Benning, GA. Enrollment period for the first 4 courses is effective 16
    December 2008. Recommend States immediately enroll Soldiers who meet below
    qualifications.

    *This initiative is only funded for FY 09; all interested and qualified
    Soldiers must be enrolled within the allotted timeframe listed below

        The deadline for the first four classes starting March 9 has already expired, but the rest of the year is still good.

          Sir, Would the dates for the rest of FY09 be on ATRRS?

          Comment


          • #6
            Yes, the dates are on ATTRS. Anyone qualified should jump on this. I wish this program existed when I was newly enlisted and newly commissioned.

              Sir, can you please provide a link that I can forward to the Readiness NCO?
              I tried googling it a bit, but nothing came up.

              Thanks

                This is AWESOME and very needed. If you are interested and qualified, jump on this, you never know when money is short. When they are throwing out a bone like this, take it!! It only pads your DD214 and awards. This is good to see.

                [url]www.atrrs.army.mil[/url] On the right side is Course Catalog, you can run searches off that. This is where you can find all schools and dates for most anything offered in the Army.

                  Ok - so I'll brave out the question: What exactly is this? :) The program, I mean....from a non prior-service standpoint of someone who hasn't yet enlisted so still has MOS options...

                  Saw the word pilot in there..pilot as in flying or pilot as in test program? Cause pilot as in flying I bet my non-perfect eyesight disqualifies me.

                      If I had a link I would have provided it in the first post, instead of copying and pasting it 7 times from my email. I wouldn't be surprised if your readiness NCO already has it. This was sent from my battalion retention NCO to all commanders and AGRs.

                      Plano, pilot as in test program. One would think that after two years on this forum and over 255 posts you'd learn something. Kidding, kind of

                        i want all the hooah schools when i get back thats when i'll be in my best shape lol

                        they had open slots when i was in ait for airbourne (i know, completely different then AA) and offering to anyone interested and qualified

                        i was passing apft at the 18-21 year catagory and still didnt feel i was prepared enough

                        so its regular school with AD or they have special ones just for NG? couldnt get that from the memo

                        i hope its mixed, otherwise they will say it was watered down

                          So it's a chance to be able to attend air assault school? Not some special new MOS or something?

                            It's the National Guard course. And the MOI is the same as Fort Campbell's. Not watered down

                              Oh i'm sure its not, but others will say that. Personally I wouldnt care what others thought, but you know it will be said by someone at some point. Sounds like an opportunity of a lifetime though. Hopefully they will again offer it in 2010. 27 days and counting for pre pre mob and straight into mob!! no opsec issue, its plastered on the news daily and released by Public Affairs Office. There are many held on Stop Loss and very close to ETS that would be very interested.
