Sum 1, Have you been to the IW blog on the NNWC SITE? It's CAC enabled. That is supposed to be the official "RADM Deets approved" site. Nope, I didn't know about it. CAC enabled computers are tough to get onto at NIOC HI due to the limited number (and it seems like all the ones there always have ai...

The government of Russia used to (maybe still does) send every DLI graduate a congratulations letter for completing Russian language training and becoming a CTI. Personally, as someone who has a pretty good idea of how research and targeting is done on our side a site like FB would make that job WAY...

Weren't we swearing off social networking sites in terms of talking about our warfare community? I know the Navy didn't even want DLI graduates talking about going to school there, much less all joining a group and creating a one-stop-shop for intel targeting.

It really depends on whether or not the language is "dominant in force" and what your background is. DLI graduates or individuals who learned a language on the Navy's dime are always eligible to receive FLPP. Heritage speakers or people who learned a language through other means are a little more co...

EXCLUSIVE: U.S. failed to use best radar for N. Korea missile

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/15/us-failed-to-use-best-radar-for-n-korea-missile/ Well... now I know what the giant golf ball-like dome on a platform is called (and what it's used for). Funny I couldn't find anything about it in high side channels when I looked a year or so ago.

I'm curious why it would be career suicide?

I somewhat disagree. There are going to be people who wish to remain in the Navy, but also want to take advantage of opportunities they couldn't if they had to factor in the unexpectedness of deployments and the military lifestyle. One example is graduation education (since we've been discussing it ...

As my undergrad degree is in Korean I'm looking to score one of the Security Studies spots that hopefully will be in place for fiscal year 2010 and onward. I still have a couple of years at my current command and another 2 or 3 years in a TIWO tour before I need to worry about it.

Because of the language in the tuition assistance instruction and at the suggestion of the O-5 and O-4 at my OCS board, I stopped an MBA 2 classes short of completion while I was enlisted. I was told that if I already had a degree at that level the Navy wouldn't likely send me to NPS, even though th...

The language for the Navy's policy of not funding multiple degrees at the same level appears in the tuition assistance instructions, I believe. I've been told it spills over to NPS and other programs, but the War College doesn't necessarily count.
