Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield comes to a close Benjamin Christensen, NDW Waterline writer
Navywide exercise Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield (SC/CS) 2012 was completed last Saturday, marking the thirteenth running of the security training operation. An annual fixture in the early spring, SC/CS is a widespread activity, with exercises taking place at bases throughout the continental United States. SC/CS has been run each year since 1999. A key aspect to the usefulness of exercises such as SC/CS are the wide scope and variety of the individual tests and processes that take place, which prepare the participants for the entire scope of possible contingencies that they might face in the event of a real emergency. Events this year included active shooters, suspicious packages, surveillance exercises, bomb threats, and protests. "This exercise allowed us to train to and practice those procedures which will be needed if there is a significant event to the base, the
region or the nation" said Capt. Anthony Callandra, commanding officer of Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. "It also helped us gain valuable lessons learned to improve security and emergency management for not only security threats but also natural or manmade disasters." Although this year's exercise is similar in nature to other years, SC/CS has been unique this year in that it has provided the first opportunity to identify Mission Essential Personnel (MEP), those who were required to report to work when the Force Protection Condition (FPCON) was raised to CHARLIE last Thursday. By identifying those MEPs, it allowed for "non-essential" personnel to remain at home. About 3-7 percent of personnel that work on the various NDW installations are considered MEPs. "Identifying the MEPs by working with the individual tenants was extremely manpower intensive, but it was a huge success, and well worth it," saidTim Stoessel, with Naval District
Information on bridge and sewer construction traffic Naval SupportActivityWashington's(NSAW) Community Planning Liaison Officer (CPLO) and Public Works Department have keptinclosecontactwiththemanagersofthe11th St.BridgeProject and the DC Water Clean Rivers Project Combined Sewer Overflow Control Program, clearly communicating both the needs of the Yard's commuters and NSAW's operational requirements. Theseeffortshaveminimizedimpactstotheinstallationbyconsolidating individual construction evolutions. However, there will still be inconveniences for our commuters. In the near term, two gates will be impacted: - From March 26 through April 20, the O St. Gate will be open to inbound vehicle traffic only. No impact to pedestrian traffic. - From March 26 through March 30, the 9th St. Gate will be reduced to one vehicle lane. From 5 a.m. to 9 a.m the gate will be an inbound-only vehicle gate, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. it will be outbound-only. There will be no impact to pedestrian traffic. We also expect that from April 3-13, Pepco will conduct work in support of the sewer project that will create lane closures on M St. both east and west of the 9th St. Gate. There will be further impacts to vehicular and pedestrian traffic as the construction projects progress throughout the summer. We will continue to actively engage the project managers and pass information to help your employees plan their commutes.Thank you inadvanceforyourpatienceandcooperationinhelpingusmanage this issue.

Maryland Governor signs proclamation declaring April 'Month of Military Child' By Benjamin Christensen, Naval District Washington Public Affairs ANNAPOLIS, Md. (NNS) -- Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley signed a proclamation March 19, declaring April 2012 as Month of the Military Child, the first such declaration to be made in the state of Maryland. This proclamation follows on the heels of one by Mayor Vincent C. Gray for the District of Columbia last week. "While several other states have issued proclamations designating April as Month of the Military Child, we were delighted to have Governor O'Malley respond positively to the request for such a proclamation for all military connected children and youth in Maryland," said Carol Mohsberg, school liaison officer for Naval Support Activity Annapolis. Although there more than 40,000 military children living in Maryland, much focus is spent on their parents' dedication and sacrifices, while children in military families are often overlooked.The so-called "military brats" often make huge sacrifices of their own due to the great demands on their parents. "While we often recognize the active duty or reserve service member, it is important to remember that 'kids serve too'; in their schools, their neighborhoods, their communities, etcetera," said Mohsberg.
Jennifer Dailey-Perkins, regional school liaison officer for Naval District Washington (NDW), said April has been utilized as a month to honor children from military families since 1986, when then-Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger requested members of all the military branches take that time especially to commend military children for stoically enduring the trials they often face. "Since then each April, military installations around the world honor our young heroes with special activities and events," said Dailey-Perkins. "These festivities let them know that they are valued and supported." This time is also being used to remind service families that there are indeed resources available for them. Each installation in NDW has a School Liaison Office "who is available to offer assistance to military families who have school-aged children with transition and deployment needs." "Additionally, our entire NDW Child and Youth Program team stand ready to assist our military children and take pause this month to celebrate their achievements," said Dailey-Perkins.

Charities offer service members a chance to give back by Senior Airman Susan L. Davis, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Public Affairs
ly in his Air Force career. "I was a poor airman basic when my transmission went out in my car at the same time my wife was days away from giving birth to our child," he said. "The Air Force Aid Society gave me an interest-free loan and I was able to get my car fixed just in time. It relieved a great deal of stress on me and my family." Conklin encouraged members to spare what they can for this worthy charity. "This is a great opportunity to give to an organization that directly benefits their brothers and sisters in the Air Force, that honors and cares for our living heritage, and one that they may come to benefit from one day as well," he said. Similarly, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, founded in 1904, is a private, non-profit charity organization sponsored by the Navy.The NMCRS provides need-based financial assistance to eligible recipients in the form of interest-free loans and grants, as well as scholarships and interest-free loans for education.The NMCRS also offers financial counseling, budget for baby workshops, thrift shops and visiting nurse services. For more information or to donate to the Air Force Assistance Fund, log on to http://www.afassistancefund.org/, or contact your unit AFAF representative.

ture and future Airmen to ensure that these organizations continue to serve Airmen and their families in times of need." The AFAF was established to provide for an annual effort to raise funds for charitable affiliates that provide support to the Air Force family, including active duty members, retirees, reservists, guardsmen and their family members (including surviving spouses) in need. These organizations are the Air Force Villages Inc., the Air Force Aid Society Inc., the General and Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation, and the Air Force Enlisted Village Inc. These organizations help Air Force members and family members in emergencies, educational needs, or to have a secure retirement home for widows or widowers of Air Force members in need of financial assistance. "Each Air Force unit has key workers appointed who can assist with contribution processes," said Hall. "It is our goal to make 100 percent contact with everyone. Both military and civilians are more than welcome to make contributions." Contributions may be made in the form of cash, check, or payroll deduction for active duty Airmen, or retired Airmen may set up a deduction from their retirement pay. The Potomac Lanes Bowling Facility will also host an AFAF Bowling day, from noon-6 p.m. March 27, where donations will be accepted. The $8 cost will cover frames and shoes. Hall shared a personal story about how the Air Force Aid Society, an Air Force Assistance Fund offshoot, helped him ear-
Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, D.C. -- The annual Air Force Assistance Fund campaign kicked off at Joint Base AnacostiaBolling March 12. The goal for the JBAB Air Force Element is to raise $4,700, calculated based on the active duty population and their pay grades. Master Sgt. Michael Hall, JBAB Public Works Department operations superintendent, and Ch. (Capt.) Chris Conklin, JBAB chaplain, are project officers for this year's AFAF campaign. "My personal goal is to try and collect enough contributions to surpass our goal and ensure these programs are available for our Airmen now and in the future," said Hall. "We never know how life is going to turn or who is going to need a helping hand.What you give this year, you or yours may need later. When you think about it, for a few dollars, you can really make a difference in one of our service members' lives." Conklin agreed. "They take care of those who have sacrificed much and gone before us, those who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances because of the loss of a spouse, catastrophic health care costs, or those who have outlived their retirement savings," he said. "They are also an investment in our own fu-

Navy commander takes reins as new (VX) 23 leader by Doug Abbotts, NAWCAD Public Affairs Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 23, or (VX) 23, welcomed its new leader in a change of command ceremony March 23 at Hangar 201. Navy Cmdr. Thomas "Lou" Tennant, the former Chief Test Pilot for VX- 23 since September 2010, replaced Marine Col. Charles Gray, who will become program manager for the AV-8 Harrier. "We have accomplished much over the last year and a half; we have shown tremendous leadership, discipline and teamwork. We will continue to need those qualities going forward, because the hard work has just begun," Tennant told the group of more than 600 people gathered for the afternoon event. With more than 470 personnel, VX-23 supports the research, development, test and evaluation of fixed wing tactical aircraft by providing aircraft and pilot assets, maintenance service, safety oversight and facility support. VX- 23 supports the squadron's F/A-18A-F, EA-6B, EA-18G, and T45A/C aircraft. The squadron conducts operations from a facility that includes three large hangars, and also operates and maintains a TC-7 catapult and MK-7 arresting gear facility. Raised in Tulsa, Okla., Tennant was commissioned through the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps program at the University of Notre Dame in 1990, where he earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. A naval aviator since 1993, Tennant attended Naval Postgraduate School, Naval Test Pilot School and received his master's degree in aeronautical engineering. His previous assignments include a deployment to the Mediterranean/Adriatic seas from 1994 to 1997; two years at the Strike Aircraft Test Squadron as lead F/A-18E/FWeapons Integration Team test pilot and project officer; working as the safety, maintenance, operations and administrative officer with Strike Fighter Squadron 27, (VFA) 27, from 2002 to 2004 while he was forward deployed from Naval Air Facilities Atsugi, Japan; and serving as the military deputy at the F/A-18 and EA-18G Advanced Weapons Laboratory.

For outgoing commander Gray, the ceremony was a platform to reflect on his legacy and pass the baton to Tennant.

Officials: Cyber research needs innovation, talent By Cheryl Pellerin, American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, March 21, 2012 – As a critical enabler of Defense Department business and military operations and the DoD command-and-control backbone, cyber is the focus of intense research and development in an environment where success means getting out ahead of an evolving threat. During the unclassified portion of a hearing of the Senate Armed Services subcommittee on emerging threats and capabilities yesterday, experts from DoD, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the National Security Agency discussed the department’s vulnerabilities and needs. “DARPA’s bottom-line message today [is] that DoD is capability-limited in cyber, both defensively and offensively,” DARPA Acting Director Kaigham “Ken” J. Gabriel told the panel. “We need to change that.” “Our approach to cybersecurity is dominated by a strategy that layers security onto a uniform architecture,” Gabriel explained. “This approach … is not convergent with a growing and evolving threat. That’s the defensive picture.” In cyber offense, he added, modern warfare demands the effective use of cyber and
kinetic means. “The tasks required for military purposes are sufficiently different that we cannot simply scale intelligence-based cyber capabilities and adequately serve the needs of DoD,” the acting director said. For example, he added, “a cyber exploit that always causes the target system to crash is not much of an intelligence exploit, but it may be exactly the effect a DoD mission calls for.” DARPA-developed technologies are widely prevalent in military, intelligence and commercial use today, but much remains to be done, Gabriel said. “From our vantage point,” he added, “the greatest vulnerability in cyber offense for the DoD is the lack of capabilities with proportionality, speed and diversity of effects.” “It's very much an environment where we have to continually up the game and get ahead of the threat,” Zachary J. Lemnios, assistant secretary of defense for research and engineering, told the senators. “We started in computer network defense years ago with the perimeter defense strategy -- a firewall strategy.We then moved to an environment where we have on the commercial side embedded agents that look at

SC/CS Continued from 1 Washington(NDW)TrainingandReadiness(N7). The successes of the operation did not go unnoticed by the various NDW commands. "Our security professionals performed extremely well not only in the execution of this exercise, but also in planning and preparing for it," said Capt. Frederick (Fritz) Kass, commanding officer of Naval Support Activity Bethesda. "Equally key to our success was the outstanding cooperation we received from all of our tenant commands." "Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield 2012 was a success at Naval Support Activity South Po-
tomac," said Capt. Peter Nette, commanding officer, Naval Support Activity South Potomac. "Without the support and cooperation from our supported commands and local communities, success above the tactical level would've been difficult to achieve." Despite the resounding success of the exercise, the work of preparation is never truly finished. Security and other personnel will continue to train and prepare diligently to ensure that they are consistently ready. "We will apply lessons learned as we continue to refine plans and procedures, but overall the exercise was a tremendous success," said Rear Adm. Patrick Lorge, commandant, Naval District Washington.
Is this vet working the system? Q: I’m supposed to be the Wounded Warrior hiring POC at my organization and I need help.We placed this woman (disabled vet, but not combat) in an entry level role at my organization.She had a general discharge under honorable conditions due to misconduct, but the manager was willing to give her a chance—she seemed really desperate and begged for it. Fast forward four months. She called me the other day wanting me to refer her for a GS9 position in another location (she is a GS5) but I explained that I was only really tasked with filling jobs inside my org,time in grade,and that it’s a different series/skill set that she doesn’t have any experience with. Anyway, I work with another POC who recruits disabled vets too for a different activity in the Midwest.She called me about a candidate who had asked for her help because she saw that she worked with us. It’s the same person! She told her a whole different story. I am scared to say anything.Is she playing us? Help! A: I think the answer to “is she playing us”? is clear as a bell. I’ll give this individual credit—she definitely has moxie. Veterans, disabled or otherwise, are just like everyone else—there are sometimes bad apples. It’s important not to ignore things like the fact that she was discharged due to misconduct. I have worked with many veterans who have all sorts of issues with money, the law, family, health, etc. Not one that we have placed has been discharged in any way but honorably. A General Discharge under Honorable conditions with a note about misconduct is something to take heed of. Sure, give the lady a chance to explain but interview closely. More than once. Hiring a fed is signing off on a 20-30 year career. It’s not to be taken lightly. It sounds to me as though you are under no obligation to further assist this individual. She has a federal position and therefore is “in the system.” She can compete for other positions. Direct her to USA Jobs and answer questions, be professional, but let her figure it out. Let her apply on her own to anything that catches her eye. If she doesn’t qualify, the system will take care of it. As for your counterpart in the Midwest, yes, I would answer her inquiry. Let her know the facts- that she works with you currently and has for a few months, that she has approached you to actively seek other employment. You don’t have to give your opinion or compare notes on her tall tales, but you can say “Boy, we seem to have different information about her.” And leave it at that. Laura Stanek, Human Resource Advisor and Wounded Warrior Program Manager, is dedicated in assisting wounded warriors and disabled veterans from all branches of service with transition to federal civilian employment.

Inferno: The World at War Book review Reviewed by Cmdr. Youssef Aboul-Enein, MSC, USN Inferno: The World at War, 1939-1945 by Max Hastings. A Borzoi Book, published by Alfred A. Knopf, NewYork. 699 pages, 2011. What more can be written aboutWorldWar II, a defining event of the 20th century? Award winning British historian Max Hastings has published a single volume of the conflict that chiefly looks at the human dimension through letters and diaries, while preserving the overall tactics and strategy of the different theaters. The human toll, as described in the book, was 60 million dead, a breakdown of 23,000 deaths per day from September 1939 to August 1945. Hastings points to a powerful description from British and American infantrymen on their experiences in Europe, which lasted eleven months. He reminds the readers of the titanic struggle between Germany and Russia that lasted four years. Inferno, published in Britain as All Hell Let Loose, is part of a collection that Hastings has produced onWorldWar II, which includes Armageddon and Retribution, published in 2004 and 2008 respectively. His book Armageddon delves into the ordeal of the victims of the holocaust, while the current book, Inferno, explores the evolution of the holocaust from Hitler’s homicidal anti-Semitism to his henchmen who systematized the liquidation of millions. In the February 11, 2011 edition of Waterline, a review of Hastings’ book Winston’s
War was featured. The overarching geo-strategic theme of the Axis and Allied powers was the struggle for hemispheric dominance. The book offers details that highlight how different people suffered differently in the war: for instance, the book contains such intimate stories as a British husband complaining about and discarding carrot marmalade. This would have be considered a luxurious delicacy in Russia’s eastern front, where people survived by hacking off the limbs of dead horses. Men and women were reduced to debasing

AFPAK Hands: On the Ground
These Sailors, L-R - Lt. Cmdr. Jalal Khan (CISA); Cmdr. Kyle "Chilly" Taylor (ICAF); Cmdr. Chad Larges (NWC); Capt. Mike Devine (NWC); Lt. Cmdr Garland Andrews (CISA); and Cmdr. Raymond "Pasta" Tortorelli (ICAF) are AFPAK Hands in the Out of Theater deployment phase of the program.
One part of the AFPAK Hands program involves a oneyear Out of Theater assignment in which Sailors are given the opportunity to improve their skills and understanding of the unique region. Some are assigned to work in a government agency or DoD command. These six AFPAK Hands, members of COHORT 1 (the first team deployed for this program), are currently in their Out of Theater assignments, and have been selected to pursue higher education. Kahn and Andrews are attending the College for International Security Affairs (CISA), aiming to earn a Master of Arts in strategic security studies. Taylor and Tortorelli are attending the Industrial College of the Armed Forces (ICAF), in an AFPAK concentration program. Larges and Devine are attending the National War College (NWC), which also has an AFPAK concentration program. All of the Sailors are working towards improving their own knowledge of the world at-large, which will give them a unique perspective once they redeploy. Editor's note: AFPAK Hands is a language and cultural immersion initiative which consists of three phases: language and cultural training, in and out of theater deployment. During an out of theater deployment a service member can be assigned to a government agency, DoD command or other organization where their work in country can be applied and then add to their perspective when they redeploy.
Naval Academy assists with Chesapeake Bay Oyster Restoration By MC3 Danian Douglas ANNAPOLIS, Md. (NNS) -- A U.S. Naval Academy team of researchers and Navy divers completed a year of collecting oyster samples from the Severn River March 20 as part of an ongoing effort to study and restore oyster populations in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The team helps rejuvenate the declining oyster population by monitoring water quality and testing the collected samples. The project was initiated two years ago, when a group of oceanography and ocean engineering faculty and staff working independently on Chesapeake Bay-related issues saw the Army Corps of Engineers were reconstructing local oyster reefs. The USNA group contacted the Army's engineers to suggest that the Naval Academy could play a role, said ocean engineer LouiseWallendorf, who works in the academy's hydromechanics laboratory. Oyster larvae need a hard surface on which to attach, so they can change to young oysters called "spat," and grow. Normally larvae settle on the shells of oysters that make up the bay's reefs, but overharvest and changes in the oyster reefs have led to a dramatic decline in oyster populations. Oyster restoration involves building reefs made of oyster shells, granite, recycled concrete and slag and placing them in known oyster breeding spots, including an area in the Severn River near the Naval Academy yard. The Academy works with researchers from the University of Maryland who hatch oyster larvae and grow the spat on shell, and the Oyster Recovery Partnership which coordinates placement of the oyster spat on the Army's artificial reefs, said Wallendorf. The Naval Academy Sailing Center also became involved, supplying boats for the researchers to place water quality instrumentation and the Navy divers to collect oyster samples from the reefs. "What we do on each dive is harvest a certain amount of oysters from each type of reef," said Navy Diver 2nd Class Casey Mrozek, of Lake Zurich, Ill. "The Academy team then conducts biological tests to determine which areas promote the best growth rates." Cecily Steppe, associate professor in the Oceanography Department, examines the maturity and gender of the oysters under microscopes and compares it to measurements of the water's salinity, temperature and dissolved oxygen at each reef site. This helps determine the oysters' ability to survive and reproduce. Reports are then sent to the Army Corps of Engineers for evaluation. Only since diving for the project did Mrozek realize how important the oyster culture is to the community. 1035745

Navy Medicine, Private Industry Partnership seeks Malaria, mosquito control In Africa By Lt. Ryan Larson, Navy Entomology Center of Excellence Public Affairs ACCRA, Ghana (NNS) -- The Navy Entomology Center of Excellence (NECE) headquartered at Naval Air Station Jacksonville announced March 21 a key collaboration with an international company as part of a program to discover new public health pesticides for controlling mosquitoes. Vestergaard Frandsen (VF) is an international company based in Europe that specializes in complex emergency response and disease control products. VF is interested in techniques developed by NECE and the United States Department of Agricultural Center for Medical andVeterinary Entomology (CMAVE) to aid in the discovery of insecticides with new active ingredients for use in treating bed nets and conducting indoor residual pesticide applications, the cornerstone of malaria prevention programs in Africa. Katelyn Chalaire, NECE entomologist, will provide direct support to Vestergaard Frandsen's pesticide discovery initiative. Chalaire's expertise stems from her work in the discovery and evaluation of new pesticides used to control mosquitoes as part of the congressionally mandated DeployedWar-Fighter Protection (DWFP) Program. Chalaire and Dr. James Becnel of CMAVE in Gainesville, Fla., presented a training workshop on pesticide screening procedures at VF's laboratory in Accra. NECE has collaborations with civilian and government agencies, including CMAVE, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and
the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "I conducted a toxicology screening workshop for five laboratory technicians and the laboratory manager of the VFGhana research laboratory," said Chalaire. "This workshop will enable the CMAVE and VF-Ghana screening programs to exchange chemicals for evaluation and will be beneficial to DoD's goal of identifying new chemicals for vector control." The workshop included an oral presentation detailing advanced pesticide screening techniques used by Chalaire, followed by a hands-on demonstration of the screening protocol. Ultimately, the training standardized methods between the two labs, promoting product and results exchanges. According to Chalaire, mosquitoes are developing resistance to insecticides commonly used in public health programs, so it is imperative to identify new compounds for both military and non-military use to control human disease transmitted by blood-feeding insects. "Chemicals with new modes of action will be targeted in an effort to overcome insecticide-resistant insect populations," said Chalaire. "This coincides with efforts of CMAVE and NECE as part of the DeployedWar-Fighter Protection Program to discover new public health pesticides and identify new strategies for insecticide-resistance management." Although VF is focused on finding products to be used on bed nets, these insecticides with new modes of action could be used as an alternative to permethrin currently used to treat military fabrics (e.g., uniforms, tents, barriers, etc.), during residual insecticide applications, and as a spatial spray against resistant mosquitoes and other disease carriers, or "vectors."
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work on a project that has so much potential for the development of a new insecticide that could be used to protect our troops," said Chalaire. Chalaire said the trip was also a great learning experience. She travelled to a small, rural village inWenchi, Ghana, to visit a clinical study site where she learned how VF's bed nets are being evaluated for durability, ease of use, and efficacy. "The most interesting part of the trip to Ghana was learning about Vestergaard Frandsen's new product development projects, specifically bed nets and durable wall linings for protection against malaria-vectoring mosquitoes," said Chalaire. "The products thatVF is developing could easily translate into products that could be used for troop protection when they are deployed to geographic areas where mosquito-borne diseases are endemic." NECE is a field activity of the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center, and is part of the Navy Medicine team, a global healthcare network of 63,000 Navy medical personnel around the world who provide high quality health care to more than 1 million eligible beneficiaries. Navy Medicine personnel deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing critical mission support aboard ship, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.

CYBER Continued from 4 work traffic,” he said. Eventually, Lemnios added,“we're moving to a point where no longer will we be looking for particular attacks, but we will be designing systems on the commercial side that morph automatically -- actually change their features and operating roles to respond to threats before the threats present themselves.” President Barack Obama’s fiscal 2013 Pentagon budget request includes a $3.4 billion investment in cyber activities, of which $486 million is dedicated to science and technology investments, he said. This investment is significant, he added, given the department’s complex set of cybersecurity responsibilities and challenges. The DoD enterprise system includes 15,000 networks and 7 million computing devices across hundreds of installations in dozens of countries that are used for business operations. But the DoD cybersecurity capability must extend beyond the enterprise system, Lemnios said, to include mission-critical command and control networks, cyber physical systems and cyber radio frequency systems -- communications systems --

Waterline that make up DoD’s tactical systems. “The emergence of networked tactical systems and cyber physical systems have created new opportunities for increased cybersecurityattackanddisruption,”theassistantsecretarysaid. The cyber operational domain is built on measures and countermeasures, he added, where technical depth, operational innovation and technology transition are the ingredients for leadership. “The key to success for all our cybersecurity efforts is talent -- the workforce we have in our laboratories, in academia, in industry, in our small business community and the workforce of tomorrow,” Lemnios said. DoD has several programs to advance the cyber research and development workforce, he said.These include the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative that attracts high school and college students into cyber security, the DoD Information Assurance Scholarship Program for scholars who want to complete a degree in cyber-related fields, and efforts involving the services. At the National Security Agency, the research enterprise supports the agency’s information assurance and signals intelligence mission with a highly skilled technical workforce, Michael A. Wertheimer, NSA’s director of research and development, told the panel.
Better than a third of the workforce has PhDs, another third has master’s degrees, and just under a quarter have bachelor’s degrees,Wertheimer said. But poor recruitment and retention practices have caused U.S. production of computer scientists to decline, he added. NSA has created a three-year prototype post-doctoral program to attract new talent, he said. At DARPA, to create cyber capabilities with the diversity, dynamic range and tempo of DoD operations, the agency launched a program called Cyber FastTrack, which taps a pool of nontraditional experts and innovators, many of whom operate in the “white-hat” hacker community. “Half of our so-called cyberpunks -- the group of about a half a dozen or eight program managers at DARPA -- don't have PhDs,” Gabriel said. “Their skills, their capabilities, their insights are coming from their practice in the community. And frankly, it will have a shelf life.” Like all the program managers who work at DARPA,“they'll go through the three to five years, and they'll move on, and others will come in with a newer, different perspective,” he added. “I think that's an interesting thing about cyber. … It has such a fast refresh and short shelf life that we may have opportunities for a different model of how we retain that capability,” he said.
BOOK Continued from 5 experiences to survive, such as a boom in prostitution, the agonies of mass migration, and ordeals that led to the deaths of millions. In the summer of 1939, the famous American film classic, “Gone with theWind,” was surging in popularity in Poland. The Poles made comparisons to the doomed Confederacy and Hitler committing to the invasion of Poland, the calm before the storm. You will get an intimate look at why the German generals devised “blitzkrieg,” a quick war as Hitler and his general staff worried about the impact of long mobilizations had on the morale of the German people. Hitler would be genuinely surprised that the British and French would declare war on him over Poland; after all he was allowed Czechoslovakia and Austria? Chapters have vivid descriptions of Russia’s performance in their attack on Finland. Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin pushed 120,000 men, 600 tanks, and 1,000 guns through Finland’s narrow approaches. They were ill-equipped and ill-trained. That and Stalin’s liquidation of his officer corps in the 1937 purges led to 60 percent of that armor being destroyed, and the Soviets mired in a quagmire. The Germans would pay close attention to Soviet performance in Finland, and it would form the basis of Hitler’s fatal decision in June 1941 to invade the Soviet Union. Hastings takes readers to the Pacific, Iraq, Egypt, and the famine in British-controlled Bengal. Those with a passion for World War II will enjoy Hasting’s book and elegant narrative style.
OYSTER Continued from 6 "It's cool to know that you're part of something that's helping the environment and the whole ecosystem around here," he said. "Participating in projects like this shows that the Navy is not just concerned about defense. We're concerned about the environment that we need to live in and sustain ourselves."
