US Air Force Cyber Command - Our Own Geek Squad
8th Air Force to become new cyber command (AF Link)
"The aim is to develop a major command that stands alongside Air Force Space Command and Air Combat Command as the provider of forces that the President, combatant commanders and the American people can rely on for preserving the freedom of access and commerce, in air, space and now cyberspace."
Now of course we semi-normal Air Force members wanted a shot at being a part of this newly minted Command, so a few of us downloaded the official brief which explains the prerequisites for joining AF Cyber Command.
Turns out that most of us just aren't cut out for Cyber Command duty since we don't live in our parent's basements or dress up in Dungeons and Dragons costumes.
My God, we're going to have a field day with this command. Sure, it's a dream come true for the hackers and gamers of the world who want to go legitimate, but it's still going to be easy to make fun of.

I'm really not sure what to say about that. I guess we're OK - as long as these guys don't have any launch codes or serious buttons to push!!!10:46 AM

Um, all those Initial cadre...look like brothers and cousins of Drew Carey. Is this possible?9:01 PM
Speaking as a recent AF Comm Enlisted, I think there's too much overlap in those three sources for "Initial Cadre" to really list them separately...
And they have their own PowerPoint Ranger patch!
100+ hours! OUTSTANDING!
It's missing out on posts like this one that make me really mad I sleep days and work nights on weekends...
It's reminds me of the toga parties we had in the barracks, after being confined for failing inspection...
Absolutely my kind of outfit...
I'm loving these slides. Wish I could see the badge better. Where did you get these? Also, let me say I'm researching for a story on the new AF Center for Cyberspace Research and Cyber Command. To appear in the September issue of Defense Systems magazine. Are any of you interested in being part of the new command? Is it an option? Are you in IT now? Am I asking the wrong questions? Here's the thing. I need to write about the institution, why it's being set up, who's involved, etc. But I'd like to hear from enlisted personnel, also. What do you think? I can check back here if you don't want to contact me directly. Or you can email me at slais at 1105media dot com.
Thanks for your help.
can you send a copy of the presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org ? It is great, and since we are going to work there, I would like to present them to our unit. Thanks for the humor, it is great.6:20 AM
