The Navy takes pointers from Google Glass to create the next generation of military training.
The Pentagon will complete the Joint Regional Security Stacks in the European theater by the end of this year, two years earlier than planned. DoD already has begun to construct this regional cyber approach in the U.S. as part of its Joint Information Environment program.
The Army general at the center of a sexual misconduct case that put the military justice system itself on trial was spared prison Thursday and sentenced to a reprimand and a $20,000 fine -- a punishment legal experts, a women's group and members of Congress decried as shockingly light.
The Pentagon is ready to speed up a major cybersecurity upgrade in Europe.
A new law targeting sexual assault in the military means big changes to its judicial system.
The Army hopes to follow behind the Marine Corps in successfully passing a partial audit of its financial statements. While the service acknowledges it's unlikely to get a clean opinion on the first go-round, it is confident enough in its internal controls to give it a try.
Report on Navy Yard killings says Pentagon must focus more on defeating insider threats
A six-step plan for acquisition reform for the Defense Department.
Six months after 34-year-old IT contractor Aaron Alexis opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard killing 12 people, concerns about missed red flags in his background and gaps in the security clearance process are now turning into action. The Obama administration released the findings of a interagency review of the federal security clearance process Tuesday. Among the 13 recommendations for shoring up the system are continuously evaluating clearance holders rather than relying on infrequent check-ups and improving investigators' access to state and local police records.
Newly-released results of three parallel investigations into last September's Washington Navy Yard shootings point to serious gaps in the government's own security process. But the Navy's review finds the killings could have been prevented if the shooter's employer had disclosed troubling details about his recent behavior.
Pentagon says the vessel is now underway towards Libya it's expected to take four days to enter Libyan territorial waters. The USS Stout is escorting, the Morning Glory. Two AK-47s were found aboard. The SEALs have departed the ship. There are 25 STOUT crew members aboard MORNING GLORY. Three Libyan detainees remain under U.S. custody.
As the combat mission in Afghanistan comes to a close, the awards process is up for review.
The Navy's newest approach to responsible drinking is only a download away.
The Defense Department's civilian workforce is in Congressional crossfire.
Transgender military personnel --at least a dozen nations, including Australia, Canada, England and Israel, allow them to serve. Transgender rights advocates have been lobbying the Pentagon to revisit the blanket ban in the U.S. since Congress in 2010 repealed ``don't ask, don't tell,'' the law that barred gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals from openly serving in the military.
The U.S. has threatened to pull all troops out of Afghanistan by the end of the year, because Afghan President Hamid Karzai has refused to sign the a new status of forces agreement. But that may not be necessary, because the 33,600 U.S. forces still deployed are covered by an existing status-of-forces agreement. The arrangement took effect shortly after 9/11 as the U.S. engagement there started. That agreement has no expiration date and prevents U.S. military personnel from being prosecuted under Afghan law.
The Naval District Washington creates a new culture of energy consumption.
Air Force officials say their service already was facing readiness issues because of the high operational tempo of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. But sequestration worsened the problems, and continuing the budget caps will set back a readiness recovery.
As lawmakers consider efforts to shore up the Postal Service's financial footing, there's still widespread disagreement over whether the current requirement for the agency prefunding requirement is fiscally responsible, as Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) argued during a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing Thursday, or an "onerous mandate" only required of the Postal Service, as Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) contended.
Gen. Keith Alexander, who will soon retire as the first commander of U.S. Cyber Command, said his organization has matured to the point that it should join the club of unified commands that report directly to the President.
