    I was going to join the ARNG but now am going to join the AD Army. My AFSC in the AF was Security Forces. I do not want to be an MP, period. I was told from my recruiter that if that MOS transfers over to the Army they may want me to just join as an MP so they don't have to retrain me. I was told by another recruiter that SF does not transfer to MP, and I would have to completely retake AIT if I wanted MP.

    If by chance SF does transfer to MP, would I be forced to accept that as my MOS?

    No. If you are prior service you don't have to go into the Army with the same job you left the AF with.

    I was prior service AF and chose a completely different MOS when I joined the ARNG.

    You're in the driver's seat, just tell them you want a different MOS and retraining. They will give it to you. Just stand your ground.

    Roger. You can keep your same AFSC/MOS if you want to - but I don't see where you have to keep it if you don't want to. :dunno:

    I would not recommend 31B (MP) thats what I am, and it's not that great.
