Which Army careers will prepare me for the CIA and FBI?
I'm going to Oklahoma City tomorrow morning to audition as a Guitarist in the Army Band. However, I've been thinking lately and I am going to major in Criminal Justice next year at the University of Arkansas. I doubt I will make the band, and if I'm correct, which Military Occupation will prepare me for a career in law enforcement with the CIA and FBI? And I am in the Army Reserve ROTC program. I will swear in at MEPS within the next week in Little Rock. Thank you! Greatly appreciated!
