Direct commissions for Army cyber officers finally gaining steam

 One of the Army’s newest direct commissioned officers was a sergeant first class with a computer engineering degree who became a major on July 30 — a show of what’s to come as the service looks to recruit talented civilians and keep critical enlisted personnel from leaving for the private sector.

The promotion made now-Maj. Waldon W. Jue the first Army National Guardsman to direct commission as a cyber operations officer. Given the importance of the cyber domain in future conflicts, the Army doesn’t want him to be the last.

Direct commissions are “finally starting to gain some steam,” said Maj. Gen. JP McGee, head of the Army Talent Management Task Force.

Jue’s promotion “builds us out to 10 cyber officers that we’ve brought in, and we’re looking for opportunities to expand this to the rest of the Army in order to be able to bring in the talent of the nation and add it to our officer corps,” McGee said during an Association of the U.S. Army panel on Thursday.
