Anyone serve in the Signal Corps. in the Army and transition to Cyber work? Considering going Reserves 25A to build up technical/management skills while working in IT Audit, but not sure if certs/CISA/CISSP will accomplish the same thing

Would recommend just going 17A or to the air force instead

I work with a couple of ex-military/signals people, and they’re both good. Both walk the walk. But the one with CISSP can talk the talk at a whole higher level, and gets more buy-in from the seniors. It’s not actually that useful in practice, but it makes a convincing and logical framework for nudging business decisions the right way.

Also wondering about the same move!

I just found out that the person I was with last year is with someone new. We were separated because of distance/covid. It just makes me sad because I feel that covid took away the opportunity for us to be together and further develop the connection that we had. It was unique and hard to find. So much has changed. I’ll get over it and if we aren’t going to be together then I am sure it’s for the best. Just feeling this heaviness today.
