You were reclassified to an authorized feeder MOS for SF. Whatever Primary MOS Series was authorized to fill SF Detachment specialty positions.

For instance: 11B, 11D, or 11C for a Weapons NCO. Because SF Weapons NCO positions were MTOE 11 Infantry Series with the addition of the "S" SQI. You were assigned to SF but competed against every other 11 Series (in your specific MOS) in the Army for promotions. Ditto for the Medic, Commo, & Engineer guys.

If not applicable to SF assignment (e.g., Truck Driver) your previous conventional Army Primary MOS became a Secondary one. Still on your personnel records, but you'd never get promoted (or serve) in that career field again.

This in the days before 18 CMF.
