Letter to the editor

With the Army announcing that it is going to use a wireless local-area network, the Navy once again must follow the Army's lead!

Two years ago the Navy decided to put all of its information technology eggs into one $6.9 billion basket and hatched the Navy Marine Corps Internet.

With new technology coming at a record pace, the Army realized the problems with NMCI and opted not go that route.

Now the Army will have real cutting-edge technology to win the war against terrorism. The NMCI Navy will lag far behind with its LAN-locked equipment and a contract, which locks it into three-year refresh rates!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a wireless LAN be more ideal to serve the Navy?

One more thing. To answer Lt. Col. Dalla Betta respectfully:

You are correct sir, to realize it does take "brave souls" to speak their mind here. That is the freedom you as a brave Marine fight to protect each day — to grant us that right to free speech as Americans. Withholding our names is only to protect our jobs.
