The Marine Corps' chief information officer, Brig. Gen. Robert Shea, will become a two-star general — a move that shows the importance the service is placing on information technology.

Shea, also assistant chief of staff for command, control, communications and computers, is being promoted to major general. Shea was the first communications officer to become a general officer three years ago, a position usually held by former infantry officers or aviators, rather than a former communications specialist.
