On the battlefield Military Intelligence Soldiers support the Guard's mission along many fronts from conducting interrogations in a foreign language or debriefing friendly intelligence sources, intelligence analysts gain and deliver critical information about the enemy’s location and plans, using state-of-the-art equipment to communicate with ground forces, artillery, armor and air support on the battlefield.
