IntelligenceIntelligence

Hiding is not an option.

The Guard depends on information and communication. Intelligence Soldiers provide the Guard with firsthand, vital intel about the enemy. Whether conducting interrogations in a foreign language or debriefing friendly intelligence sources, intelligence analysts gain and deliver to troops critical information about the enemy’s location and plans, using state-of-the-art equipment to communicate with ground forces, artillery, armor and air support on the battlefield.

At home, intelligence specialists communicate information that can have a huge impact in rescuing towns and civilians in a disaster, or even prevent a national emergency.
