Answer by Michael Antoldi
classified data may be collected from satellite images, Internet chatter, and military and spy reports. Imagine coding and decoding classified information, maintaining Combat Information Center displays or even operating an Identification Friend or Foe system on a ship. When it comes to communications networks, you’ll be working within one of the largest and most important networks on the globe.

Specific Responsibilities
Both Enlisted Sailors and Officers working in Navy Intelligence handle classified documents and transform raw data into vital intelligence. If you are able to meet all security clearance requirements, then you’re on a path to take on the responsibility of handling high-tech classified information.

As part of this occupational specialty, you may:

Track targets
Operate underwater communications equipment
Defend ships against inbound threats including antiship missiles
Analyze intelligence
Maintain Combat Information Center (CIC) displays
Operate and maintain global satellite telecommunications systems
Work with classified material
Provide technical support to deployed units
Operate electronic radio receivers
Operate state-of-the-art computer equipment
Work Environment
As an Enlisted Sailor or Officer working in the field of Navy Intelligence, you will have opportunities to serve in a variety of sea and shore assignments worldwide. Your typical assignments could place you with an aviation squadron or air wing staff or aboard an aircraft carrier or amphibious command ship.

Training & Advancement
Those pursuing Officer positions in the intelligence field are required to attend Officer Candidate School (OCS) in Newport, Rhode Island. Upon completion, they must attend a five-month basic course of instruction at the Navy and Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center at Dam Neck, Virginia. There, they receive training in electronic, anti-submarine, antisurface, antiair, amphibious, and strike warfare; counterintelligence; strategic intelligence; air defense analysis; and combat mission planning.

After graduating from basic intelligence training, graduates then go on a 30-month operational fleet tour. Typically, these on-the-job training assignments allow them to lead Sailors and supervise the collection, analysis and dissemination of intelligence critical to their command’s mission.

After the Navy
From learning highly technical database design and computer networking to decoding classified information, your training will be extensive. With these skills, you will be more than equipped for countless jobs in the high-tech industry.

Your training may also prepare you for the following civilian careers:

Intelligence Specialist
Cryptographic Machine Operator
Photographic Interpreter
Computer Programmer
Data Communications Analyst
Electronic Intelligence Operations Specialist
Computer Systems Hardware Analyst
Air Traffic Controller

What’s it like to move from the West Coast to the East Coast?

Question by Chris: What’s it like to move from the West Coast to the East Coast?
I live in California and kinda want to get out of here and go back east. Born in Riverside, CA, moved to Portsmouth, Ohio in early 1994, moved to Bartlesville, Oklahoma in Summer 1997, moved to Easton, Pennsylvania in Summer 1999, came to Northern California in Summer 2001. Since I was only a kid, I didn’t live back east extensively enough to compare it to being out west. I’m thinking one day I might want to move to Pennsylvania or Ohio. Are people accepting to newcomers? What about in like Virginia or Tennessee?

I’m 20 right now.

Best answer:

There are a lot of colleges in Virginia like that.

Look into:
William and Mary in Williamsburg
Old Dominion in Norfolk
or
University of Richmond

My guess out of those three for you would be Old Dominion, but it may be different.

That time of year is unpredictable. I would guess mid-60’s during the day and upper 40’s at night. Our rainy season starts in April so you could get some showers too.

What do you think of news coverage of events like the Virginia Tech massacre?

Question by thosewerethedays: What do you think of news coverage of events like the Virginia Tech massacre?
Does anyone notice that the networks and the local stations manage to fill up air time with “coverage” when they really don’t have any information to report, and then say “More details as they become available” when they haven’t reported any details yet? They should just report what they do know, then move on, IMHO.

We had a shooting of a city official here, and the local radio station bragged about having reporters “on the scene” everywhere, at the hospital, city hall, police headquarters, the vicitim’s home, man-on-the-street interviews, etc., but never once in 20 minutes mentioned the condition of the victim or identified the shooter. Talk about a smoke screen!

On the one hand, in our instant communications age, maybe we expect too much. On the other, competing news outlets seem to be hell-bent on pretending that they’re delivering.

What do you think? What information should the news media have had as early as yesterday? What should they have been reporting?

Are you reading my mind? It seems like they do this with any breaking news. I believe that is why they give out false information from time to time. They need to gather the facts, verify them and then report. I think their belief is, report whatever they can come up with, try to pull in a bigger audience by doing so, charge more for their commerical time and laugh all the way to the bank.
