Another year is upon us and that means another Army-Navy Football game. The Army has lost the last 10 a row. Is this the year they break the streak AND capture the Commander in Chief's trophy while taking care of that goat? The Pentagon Channel's Staff Sgt. Josh Hauser interviewed South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley about a cyber intrusion, in which personal information from electronically filed state tax returns dating back to 1998 were illegally obtained by international hackers. If you or someone you know someone who may have been affected by this situation, visit Blue Horizons, is an Air Force initiative designed to help understand science and technology progression and how it will impact the Air Force. Armed with Science interviewed Col. Tom McCarthy, director for the Air Force's Center for Strategy and Technology to talk what-if's and if-this-then-that's for the future of the Air Force. Read about Blue Horizons in the Armed with Science blog: NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen was interviewed by the Pentagon Channel this week to discuss the current state of the Afghan National Security Forces with the draw down of 2014 looming near.
