Hello everyone, I have a simple question. I am prior service HR(42A) and I am currently waiting on getting my order January, but I received a call from a Department of Defense inspector, to answer question in order to get a background check done and provide with point of contacts as well. My question is, this investigation is it normal for prior service because I don’t recall ever doing one on my first enlistment.
Thanks in advance

While a re-investigation is normal, I would ask to meet with the investigator in person so you can verify their credentials before providing personnel information. While it is unlikely that this is some type of phishing expedition, identity theft is real.

Yes it is. You did it on your first enlistment, you filled out the paperwork with the re rating station. It is likely your break in service is short enough that your update will not be challenging, unless of course you have a disqualifying issue.

I have met with an investigator twice since moving to Vegas 4 years ago. and I retired 2 years ago! But I had a TS-SCI that was in renewal. Chances are that you may not have had a SECRET on your first hitch (unlikely it would seem for a 42A to not require SECRET). Almost all MOS's require at least a SECRET these days. You did not mention what MOS you were coming back in to get? It may require a TS-SCI.
