Recommendations for prospective recruits are drawn from official Department of Defense materials, with specific references to the relevant publications. For students interested in the United States Army the governing policy agency that provides continuity for these guidelines is the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).

Welcome to the Academy of Military Science. Military Science is the study of military history (Navy, Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Air Force), drill and ceremonies, military policies and ASVAB study assistance.

UPDATE: Are You Wearing or Using a GPS-enabled Mobile Device (specifically - workout bands, watches) ? Tune in to IASE at DISA for DoD cautions against open-signal locators for service members.

Hey recruitable recruits, I'd like to share with you the source of this cyber awareness alert. First, it is my opinion, usually always, that these bulletins are issued all the way from the top, from CYBERCOM and also consequently, that the information has also been designed specifically for the benefit of my application of it. So can we wonder whether that is ego or simply personalized mass appeal? Anyway, it’s just the way I see alerts. In order to keep them simple, I manage DoD (or DHS) advisories, one by one as they are issued, each with the seriousness that they deserve - which applies to all sorts of service related topics like health or travel and not limited to only technical advisories. Today - here and now though - we are focusing on technology related alert bulletins at the Academy of Military Science, Wikiversity.

The defense department within the Department of Defense which most greatly influences my technical approaches to cloud computer network system solutions is DISA, the Defense Information Systems Agency. Within DISA is another reactive core known as IASE. You can access them both, at the same time, by the legitimate, accessible unclassified official address - paste directly, https://iase.disa.mil

There are 3 or 4 excellent situational simulators to test anyone's knowledge of cyberspace threat awareness (like avoiding broadcasting exact GPS data or instantly updating locations by social media) which is really just building on standing DoD recommendations for your safety as a potential recruit, DEP participant, recruit, active duty member, reserve personnel - this is another important lesson - it concerns your immediate surroundings, the goal of IASE is to add another dimension of situational awareness to your own alert system.

The excellent DISA by IASE training simulators will show you how to lock your information down - case hardened - backed by a decent DoD & IASE seals certification. This is not some giveaway print out. You actually have to pass some tricky scenarios while a terrorist hacker waits to spring on your slightest missteps. Take your own word for it. IASE has got some really cool unclassified simulators for learning cyberspace, including social media, best security practices. - paste directly, https://iase.disa.mil


Good luck on your certifications. More to follow. BW Schulz 17:42, 23 July 2018 (UTC)



PREVIOUSLY ON MILITARY SCIENCE: 04:34, 11 February 2018 (UTC) This is a book hunt, free from the DoD. If you can find it! Recommended for students who are interested in learning about the US Army, TRADOC PAMPHLET 600-4, abbreviated as TP 600-4, The Guide for Initial Entry Training Soldiers - June 2017 revision - published by The US Government for the United States Army is well known to every soldier who reports for basic training as The Soldier's Blue Book.

The Soldier's Blue Book covers a lot of ground, including information on Army values, traditions, and examples on how to develop, then achieve your personal goals, Army or otherwise. For example on Page 230 a useful set of steps for achieving goals can be remembered by the acronym SMART. You may already be familiar with SMART because it is widely practiced by professionals and students in many different career fields.

Let us revisit the introduction: Recommendations for prospective recruits will be drawn from official Department of Defense material. Whenever possible, sources of material should be checked for current compliance with TRADOC. There may be private copies of government publications that are easier to find online but these copies run the risk of containing outdated material, inaccurate material, omitted material, or unwanted material. Of course for this convenience readers also have to pay for them too.

For many Army manuals, including The Soldier's Blue Book, you can obtain an electronic edition in Word or Adobe formats for no download costs from the US Government Publishing Office (previously the US Government Printing Office) website by searching, and clicking, and searching for the key word phrase: TP 600-4 within the pages of the government websites. Successful results should not lead outside those sites to any private search engines or commercial websites.

With moderate search skills I found the 2014 edition of TP 600-4 in about thirty minutes which was only in PDF format. Then it took another 10 or 15 minutes to find the 2017 edition in DOCX and PDF formats. But again my search skills are moderate so many of you, now that you know where to look will probably find it much faster.

Cutting and pasting the link from my downloads as a short cut didn't appear to work, at least for me, maybe because it was a temporary link from that session instance, and that may be the point. It takes a little effort to locate the no cost download copy of these manuals but its a good lesson in what you can find when you explore past page-one of search results, something casual viewers don't but determined researchers do.
