Debriefing the Army CIO

The U.S. Army, like all of the American military services, is dependent on an increasingly complex array of information technology to prosecute its mission.

He explains how the modernization of the Army's LandWarNet ties in with building the Joint Information Environment, and will result in improved network performance for Army facilities worldwide. The general also offers a progress report on the presidentially-mandated program to reduce the number of Army data centers. And he adds that acquisition modernization is vital to keeping the military's IT resources at the ready in a time of declining budgets and shifting threat priorities.

Two-star general stripped of star and retired

A two-star Army general blamed for failing to properly investigate sexual assault and other allegations against a colonel on his staff will be retired with one star the Army announced Wednesday. The Associated Press's Robert Burns writes, "The decision by Army Secretary John M. McHugh comes more than a year after Maj. Gen. Michael T. Harrison was suspended from his duties as commander of U.S. Army forces in Japan. His case has been cited as evidence of why sex-crime victims say they don't trust the military to protect them, despite efforts by senior Pentagon officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, to make commanders accountable."
