As an Army Cyber warrant officer. We are the only MOS, the only service that can offer that.""Our warrant officers ... are very technical. We are hands on keyboard. We want you to ... remain technical for an entire career. That is how we built the MOS and have set up the MOS.""In the Army, typically you make E7 (the rank of sergeant first class), and what do we do? Probably make you a platoon sergeant. That's kind of the rule, if you will, and there's nothing wrong with that. That's a vital function. We need that. But there are some guys and gals that want to remain hands on keyboard. And so those are the folks that we recruit, because they want to remain on a keyboard for an entire career."ON THE PACE OF ARMY CYBER: "Things are changing fast and are changing every day. We're very busy. This really isn't going to be a career where you join and you get to kick back and relax. You are going to be busy."For information on the Army's cyber warrant officer program, visit:-- GoArmy.com: https://www.goarmy.com/army-cyber/army-cyber-training.html-- U.S. Army Recruiting Command: http://www.usarec.army.mil/hq/warrant/prerequ/WO170A.shtml-- U.S. Army Human Resources Command (CAC access): https://www.hrc.army.mil/content/Welcome%20to%20HRC%20Cyber%20Branch%20Assignment%20Management----- ABOUT US: United States Army Cyber Command directs and conducts integrated electronic warfare, information and cyberspace operations as authorized, or directed, to ensure freedom of action in and through cyberspace and the information environment, and to deny the same to our adversaries.
