1. THIS MILPER MESSAGE IS EFFECTIVE UPON RELEASE AND EXPIRES NLT 30 SEP 16.

2. WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ARMY DIRECTIVE 2016-01, THE ARMY NO LONGER HAS A SEPARATE
POLICY FOR THE ASSIGNMENT OF FEMALE SOLDIERS. THIS MILPER MESSAGE ALLOWS THE
RECLASSIFICATION, AS A SECONDARY MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY (SMOS), OF FEMALE ENLISTED
SOLDIERS INTO A PREVIOUSLY CLOSED MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY (MOS) WHEN THE
RECLASSIFICATION DOES NOT MEET THE RULES FOR PRIMARY MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY (

RECLASSIFICATION AND MUST RECLASSIFY INTO A SHORTAGE MOS. AS AN EXCEPTION TO THIS POLICY,
ACTIVE DUTY FEMALE ENLISTED SOLDIERS ARE AUTHORIZED TO REQUEST RECLASSIFICATION INTO SMOS
11B, 11C, 12B, 13B, 13D, 13F, 13M, 13P, 13R, 19D, 19K, 91A, 91M, AND 91P.

THIS ALLOWS FEMALE SOLDIERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND TRAINING AND SERVE IN A MOS
PREVIOUSLY ONLY AVAILABLE TO MALE SOLDIERS. ADDITIONALLY, THEY WILL MAINTAIN THEIR CURRENT
PMOS FOR PROMOTION AND MAY, AT A LATER TIME, REQUEST TO CONVERT THEIR SMOS TO THEIR PMOS
WHEN THE MOS STRENGTHS ARE IAW WITH REFERENCE E.

RECLASSIFICATION UNDER THIS MILPER MESSAGE:
