Amazing Grace Hopper, namesake for the USS Hopper (DDG 70), as we celebrate Womens History Month in March. on the development of the Harvard Mark I computer made by could store numbers and automatically calculate them. She was named in her honor. According to the book Wired for War written by P.W. Singer, all computer instructions were written in binary code. Amazing Grace was part of a team of early pioneers to develop a software known as a compiler, which turned each machines codes into something universal, developing COBOL (Common Business Language), a user friendly programming language that helped revolutionize computer programming. With the development of this language, computers were able to communicate with each other. Following the Mark I was the development of the Mark II, which strangely kept crashing. Amazing Graces computer team eventually found out it was a moth that was trapped inside the computer causing the program glitches. From then on, the glitches have been called bugs. The groundwork of these programs is what we now call the internet. Today, the internet has changed the way we connect to people and communicate by using mobile devices such as smartphones.

I believe that this is the type of training that weve got to have, said Dr. Mike Smith, Region Hawaii. The Sailors that are doing the training arent using the blue dummy guns, they are using their actual service weapons in the environment they are expected to respond to. We are using blank ammunition and the multiple integrated laser engagement system (MILES) which makes it very realistic. If we dont provide this type of training then we arent training our Sailors to be able to respond the way they are supposed to. We owe it to these Sailors to give them the very best training so they know how to do their job when they are called upon. Training evolutions conducted during the exercise included harbor defense training with the use of tactical weapons between two small boats, an active shooter scenario, and small boat attacks on the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Port Royal (CG 73) and the Los Angeles-class fast-attack CITADEL

More than 200 job seekers were in attendance and some were given the opportunity to interview with public and private sector. Fran Salas, volunteer and employment specialist at MFSC, said they host big hiring events like this twice a year. employers to participate in this big hiring event but because we wanted to go small, we had 38 employers participate. The atmosphere was in a classroom setting, lined with tables showcasing various employers in three Information Technology (IT) Specialist 2nd volunteered for the event and also plans to transition from military life to the civilian world in a couple of years. Coming to the hiring event really helped me to at least start a network and to get my feet a little wet in the civilian side, said Trantum. With my job opportunities are out there for ITs, I got lucky. Its a good industry to be in and everyone needs ITs, I guess thats the beauty of it. In addition to transitioning service members and spouses, retired service members, veterans and Department of Defense (DoD) civilians were also welcomed to attend the hiring event. Sharee Evans, a military spouse, a veteran and a DoD civilian, said that she heard about the hiring event and wanted to see what opportunities were available. I just wanted to see what was going on here and to see what opportunities they had for me. This hiring event helps by communicating with people and trying to get good contacts, Evans said. Salas said usually their main priority is to help service members who are about to separate from the military or about to retire. In the military, transition is when you are separating from the military. We help transitioning service members explore how a job in the military translates to a job in the civilian world by helping them adjust in the situation, Salas said. because we are a joint base, we do open the doors to other branches. We also always welcome our retirees and veterans too. The next hiring fair is scheduled for May 23. For more information about MFSC at JBPHH, visit https://jbphh. MFSC for transitioning
