This week in the military

Morning all.

Just a quick wrap up of this week's area military goings-on.

There's a court martial today at Maxwell. An officer is charged with five violations of four articles of the UCMJ. The charges include violating a lawful regulation, conduct unbecoming of an officer, making a false statement and fraternizing with an enlisted person.

I can't cover the proceeding since I'll be across the street at AFITC, but will update when I get any more details.

This year's Air Force Information Technology Conference is in town. I was there yesterday to hear Gen. Kehler, commander of AF Space Command, speak. He was pretty interesting and said a few notable things like disconnecting is not a response for attacks and that the acquisition process as it stands is not good enough when it comes to cyberspace and those operations.

On tap today is Gen. Lord. He was commander of the provisional Cyber Command, but is now at the Pentagon at AF HQ. He's giving remarks, then moderating a panel and then I'll be speaking wtih him, along with Scott Knuteson from the Maxwell-Gunter Dispatch.

That's all for now, more stories and updates coming soon.

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
