Two events stand out in the last few months as most pleasurable and inspiring. The first in November was a commmemorative tour of the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) on the eve of her inactivation ceremony in celebration of her 51 years of legendary service. There were so many goosebump-producing moments that it's impossible to describe each one, so I'll just say that the
Enterprise's crew clearly made the most lasting impression for their dedication to duty and espirit de corps. You can read about the Enterprise on page 68.
In December, I had the honor of interviewing DON CIO Terry Halvorsen at the Pentagon. We talked about the DON CIO's ongoing efforts to reduce the department's business IT bill while modernizing and streamlining business systems and processes
across the department. The DON CIO is working closely with many commands across the Navy and Marine Corps to ensure the department meets its efficiency goals. You can read Mr. Halorvsen's interview on page 12.
In step with efficiencies is the ability for the Navy and Marine Corps to operate effectively across all the warfighting domains, including cyberspace. In this issue, leadership from across the
Information Dominance Corps provide their unique perspectives regarding intelligence, information warfare, meteorology and oceanography, and space.
