I am glad to see it. That’s an overdue idea.

Now how about someone starting a reserve unit in Silicon Valley? Maybe even have it attached to the Joint Staff? Ideally they’d drill at 2 a.m. on Saturday mornings, wearing shorts and rock band T-shirts.

Recruiting could be a lot more imaginative than it is. Imagine, Civil War-style, offering to let someone lead the squad of cyberwarriors he or she recruits.

Meanwhile, USA Today reports on military morale and fiz fitness issues.
