IRR Call-Up Scam II
Aside from the political and ethical issues that I’ve discussed before, the whole thing seems rather odd to me. Most notably, because the memo is in OPORD/WARNORD format rather than just a regular memorandum. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that used for anything other than purely tactical situations. Then again, my experience was at the company grade level and a dozen years ago; maybe they’re doing things differently now.
I’ve e-mailed a few guys who might know more about this and should have feedback by the morning. Anyone with any clues on this is free to add to the discussion in the comments section.
