What does working in the Army Intelligence field entail?

I am thinking about possibly pursuing the intelligence MOS in the army. I scored in the 97th percentile on the ASVAB, and am enlisting, but i do not want a job where i sit at a computer or something and disseminate information. I would rather collect in the field, is this possible?

It's possible. If you want to work intel, but collect in the field, you should apply for MOS 35M, which is human intelligence collector. I had 4 that worked for me, and we kept them out in the field the entire deployment -- worked their tails off. Great Soldiers.

Look into HUMINT (35M) if you are the type that wants to be out walking around and talking to human beings. You'll still have to file reports and you'll be putting in computer time, but it won't be like that 24-7... More

Humint or PsyOps do that sort of thing occasionally, but most mil intel sit behind a desk and tell us what we just told them after we get back off patrol
