Ordnance Electronic Maintenance Training Department
Prior to 1 October 1994, both Signal and Aviation Corps electronic maintenance military occupational specialties (MOS’s) were trained at Fort Gordon. Some Signal MOS’s were trained in the Electronic Maintenance Department (EMD), and both Signal and Aviation MOS’s were trained in Specialized Electronics Department (SED).
As a result of the Electronic Maintenance Study (ELMS), Ordnance Corps became the Army proponent for all electronic maintenance. On 1 Oct 93, SED and EMD were merged into a single department, named Maintenance Support Department (MSD). On 1 Oct 94, MSD was designated as Ordnance Electronic Maintenance Training Department (OEMTD) and transferred to the US Army Ordnance Missile and Munitions Center and School (USAOMMCS), Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. OEMTD remained at Fort Gordon as a tenant activity. Signal MOS’s 29E, 29S, 39E, 29J and 29N were transferred to Ordnance as 35E, 35F, 35J, and 35N. MOS’s 29E and 29S merged to 35E. Signal warrant officer MOS 256A also became an Ordnance MOS, 918B.
