Formed in 2005 as the Army Reserve’s first functional command, the Military Intelligence Readiness Command (MIRC) manages every aspect of the Reserve’s Military Intelligence force, from recruiting and training Soldiers to preparing them for deployment in order to meet the intelligence needs of Combatant Command as well as the U.S. intelligence community in general. The MIRC has deployed over 6,000 Soldiers who have provided operational intelligence support by conducting signals intelligence (SIGINT), human intelligence (HUMINT), strategic intelligence, counterintelligence, and collection operations.

Before the MIRC was created, there was no single entity tasked with the recruiting and training of Army Reserve Soldiers for Intelligence duties, and Soldiers who did choose Intelligence careers were essentially on their own when it came to finding units where their skills could be maximized and their professional growth encouraged.

Though serving as Reservists, Soldiers in the MIRC are available for deployment on extremely short notice to provide intelligence necessary for ongoing contingency operations, including peace-building efforts and security cooperation agreements.

The MIRC Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, or unit patch, features a sword with a key-shaped hilt, symbolizing military preparedness combined with the responsibilities of security and support. Two crossed lightning bolts are emblems of the speed of modern communications, the globe represents the breadth of the MIRC’s operations.
