I believe 'something' is up, and they are keeping close tabs on former soldiers, who have special MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) like my daughter had - Combat Medic. Just wondering, if perhaps this might be related to an Ebola outbreak
Please see the attached letter - that was hand-delivered to our home yesterday. Our youngest daughter was discharged from the US Army about 9-10 months ago, and she has been in contact with the IRR (Inactive Ready Reserve) as she is supposed to do.
However, the business card of the SFC who came to our house, in civilian clothes, no less, shows who he is, and was driving a FedGov licensed plate car. He said he was looking for our daughter, and that this was the last known address for her - not true, she has given them her new address, months ago, as well as her phone number. This SFC said that, it is a new policy, to call on IRR soldiers in-person now.
I have a military background, and so do many of my friends, and none of us have ever heard of this type of policy. I'm sure we have tens of thousands of IRR soldiers in our area - how on earth could they possible call on them all, in-person?
I believe "something" is up, and they are keeping close tabs on former soldiers, who have special MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) like my daughter had - Combat Medic. Just wondering, if perhaps this might be related to an Ebola outbreak they are expecting in the US, and want to know for sure, where all the former Combat Medics are?
In any event, something is strange about this entire thing...no one has ever heard of the IRR going door-to-door, asking if the former soldier still lives at that address. A simple phone call, or a certified letter would be more efficient, don't you think? And, to be sure, this SFC came out of Vancouver, WA - and we are more than a hundred miles from there - quite the long drive, don't you think?
