Intel the company, not intelligence the job!
Funny story shared by a buddy from my unit a bit ago: He was having to repeatedly try to get a reserve soldier reassigned because the powers that be persisted in assigning him to intelligence (“intel”) positions even though he was not trained in intelligence. He was an information technology (IT) guy by training- working with computers and software, not reports about strengths and weaknesses of friendly and enemy forces. Turns out they kept assigning him to intel positions because, hey, he has a job at “Intel”, right? Uh, guys, that would be the microchip manufacturer. Why am I not surprised?
