A “help wanted” notice has been posted for qualified officers of the National Guard and Army Reserve who want to transition to full-time active-duty service with the Army.

The newly updated Call to Active Duty program is targeted at selected reservists of the Army Competitive Category branches and functional areas who are qualified for service in several growth and understrength specialties that have priority requirements in the Regular Army.

Despite the ongoing drawdown, these are good career opportunities with promotion potential in the Regular Army force structure that will follow the force cuts of the next few years, according to personnel officials.

The CAD program does not apply to special branch officers of the Army Medical Department, Judge Advocate General’s Corps and Chaplain Corps.

Applications are being accepted for active-duty appointments in these categories:

■ Civil Affairs captains and promotable first lieutenants in year groups 2010 and 2011.

■ Telecommunications Systems Engineer (FA 24) and Information Systems Management (FA 53) captains and majors.

■ Chief warrant officers two and three holding the following military occupational specialties and skills: 152H (AH-64 attack pilot, SQIs C/F/G/H/I and L), 154F (CH-47 pilot, SQIs C/F/G/H and L), 180A (Special Forces warrant officer), 255S (information protection tech), 311A (CID special agent) and 352N (signals intelligence analysis tech).

■ Chief warrant officers three and four in MOS 150U (unmanned aircraft systems operations tech).

■ Warrant officer one and chief warrant officer two in MOS 255A (information services tech) and 255N (network management tech).

■ Chief warrant officer two and chief warrant officer three aviators in MOS 152H (AH-64 attack pilot), 152D (OH-58D pilot), 153D (UH-60 pilot), 153M (UH-60M pilot), 154C (CH-47D pilot) and 154F (CH-47F pilot) for assignment to special operations positions.

Unlike the branch transfer program, these CAD opportunities do not involve retraining.

Officers requesting a call to active duty must be fully experienced and skilled in the requested specialty or functional area. Applications must include authenticating documentation, such as proof of education or work experience. Under Army policy, officers only can apply for CAD one time per fiscal year.

Policies also require that captains be graduates of an active or reserve component Captain Career Course, and majors the common core component of an active or reserve Intermediate Level Education course.

Commissioned officer applicants must have credit for at least four years of active federal commissioned service.

For details about the CAD program, see Army Regulation 135-210 (Order to Active Duty for other than a Presidential Call Up or Partial or Full Mobilization), and MilPer Message 14-151.
