Cyber security and military training: Future problems

I think that while this training is vital, there are future problems being created even now. Has anybody considered what these folks will be qualified to do as a career after their enlistment is over. 

It is bad enoygh living with a mind full of infantry training and battle experience, can you imagine the havoc possible if one of these folks go over the edge? Perhaps a lifelong career for them should be considered.

CYBER SECURITY

Excellent post Cabe.  This is welcome information and obviously much needed by the DOD.  I can only imagine where we will be in 20 years relative to cyber security.  The academies are certainly being pro-active relative to that need.  I think requiring each cadet to take appropriate courses only indicates the threat that exists.

This is a nice story, Cabe. I'd love to see that contest in action. As the Internet gets incorporated into more of our basic fuctions -- like manufacturing -- we become more vulnerable. It's good to see we're trying to protect ourselves. Of course, the U.S. is also conducting cyber attacks and cyper spying.
