21 Soldiers with Anvil Troop, 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, conduct aerial reconnaissance procedures, outside Johvi, Estonia, during day one of Operation Siil. Anvil serves as a Reconnaissance Surveillance Target Acquisition Troop and uses tools such as the Raven, a small-unmanned aircraft, to increase the avenues of approach upon an objective.

45 Our Mission The GSP identifies, selects, trains, assigns, and retains personnel conducting sensitive and complex classified operations in one of five distinct disciplines for the Army, DOD, and National Agencies. Who are we looking for? Those best suited for this line of work do not fit the mold of the average Soldier. Best qualified applicants display a strong sense of individual responsibility, unquestionable character, good interpersonal skills, professional and personal maturity, and cognitive flexibility. Applicants must undergo a rigorous selection and assessment process that includes psychological examinations, personal interviews, a CIscope polygraph and an extensive background investigation. Basic Prerequisites:Active Duty Army.25 years or older.Hold a TS/SCI clearanceFor a full list of prerequisites, please visit our website (SIPRNET http://gsd.daiis.mi.army.smil.mil) or contact an Accessions Manager at email@example.com or call (301) 833-9561/9562/9563/9564.
