From the Commander, NETWARCOM

I have a very interesting group of people who have come together to form this one command, and my challenge to these folks as we mature is to not think of yourself as a former communicator or a former network guy. That's backward-looking; I want people looking forward.

... we try to emphasize not just inside NETWARCOM but inside the Navy is that everyone who sits down in front of a computer is a cyber warrior.

...Every time you sit down at your computer, you enter the battlespace portion of cyberspace...

...we told people that it was OK to use their government computer to do other things when they weren't doing their business. That is a policy we have not stepped around from today. I do my banking online...

Captain Lambert,

I really find it hard to believe that Commander NETWARCOM is serious about what is said here. The use of Navy equipment for personal business has never been condoned. Even at a shore station the use of the land line for personal business was discouraged. What kind of a pansy outfit is this Navy turning into?

Very Respectfully,
