It's interesting to see the focus of this program towards flying roles. The USAF has one of the largest cybersecurity programs in the military and I would expect some recruitment into that field, especially as the battle landscape is changing. Protecting our nation's defense networks is a critical task. Regardless, hopefully some young men and women will see the value of a period of service to our country.

Personally I liked it better when males were expected to serve, and now we could add females to that group. Our politicians back then didn't seem as ready to go to war as they do now. Back then it touched almost all families. Now not so many.
