Let the sunshine!

The U.S. Army has picked two firms -- Clark Energy Group of Bethesda, and Acciona Solar Power of Henderson, Nevada -- to help develop and build the largest solar power array in the Department of Defense. It will be built at Fort Irwin, in California's Mojave Desert. When complete, the solar farm will generate 500 megawatts using photovoltaic cells, and solar concentrators, which turns the heat of the sun into electricity.

Getting fire's goat

The goat is traditionally the mascot of the U.S. Navy. But at Camp Williams in Utah, the Army National Guard is putting goats to work as fire protection officers. Since 1999, the Utah Guard has enlisted more than 12-hundred goats and sheep to consume sagebrush and oak brush that usually become fuel for wildfires. Goat-created firebreaks stopped big fires from spreading in 2001, and 2006.

GI Bill News You Can Use

The post-9/11 GI Bill takes effect on August first, but service members should know that NOW is the time to put in that request to transfer their benefits to spouses and children. Pentagon officials say its one of the most popular aspects of the GI Bill. Experts say its smart to transfer at least a month of benefits to each dependent before your hitch is up, so you can make adjustments later. Once you leave the service, you can't make such a change.

Crystal balling the Air Force.

In 2047, the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force, there's a good chance that unmanned aircraft will play a bigger role than ever. Officials say the "Unmanned Aircraft Systems Flight Plan" recognizes that pilots on the ground still operate the U-A-Vs, as they're called. The advantage is that they can fly over fixed positions for long periods of time, something you can't do when a human being is in the plane.
