I have been reading about some great upgrading the military is doing, thanks to the support of President Trump. The following examples will give you some idea what is ahead for our military.


The Army is searching for defense contractors to build an reconnaissance vehicle to compliment its growing fleet of next generation of combat vehicles.

It will have enhanced mobility, load capacity, and on board power. Six soldiers can ride in it. It will electric powered.

New M17 pistols, the new handguns of the U.S. Army, made by Sig Sauer, lay on a table as Soldiers assigned to Allied Forces North Battalion familiarize themselves with the weapon replacing the M9 pistol, in Chièvres, Belgium, Feb. 11, 2020.

Every US military branch is about to get its hands on the Army’s new sidearm of choice.

Gunmaker Sig Sauer has finally delivered its MHS to every service branch in the U.S. military, the company announced on Tuesday.

The announcement came amid Sig Sauer’s delivery of its 200,000th M17/M18 pistol to the military under the Defense Department’s MHS program despite the obstacles posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Based on Sig Sauer’s P320 platform, the MHS is a 9mm, striker-fired pistol that features coyote-tan PVD coated stainless steel slides with black controls and takes both 17-round and 21-round magazines.

As previously reported the Army plans on purchasing a total of 195,000 MHS pistols, the majority of which will be M17s, over the next several years.


The job outlook for technology careers is booming, according to the Bureau of Statistics with a projected 11% growth rate between 2019 and 2029. That’s more than half a million jobs with a median income of $88,240, compared to all other occupations, which have a median income of just $39,810. 

Before you tell yourself you aren’t qualified for a technology career, know this — most technology jobs don’t require more than a bachelor’s degree, if that, and with less than five years of career field experience, you could potentially find yourself earning a six figure salary with the right skills and certifications.

Technology careers have evolved significantly over the last two decades right along with the technology itself — so if you’re picturing the IT Guy helping an office minion restart their computer over the phone, rest assured that the tech career field goes way beyond that. Careers can range from website development, ethical hacking and cyber security, to database administration and software development. 

If launching into the world of technology post-military service sounds enticing, read on. We’ve compiled resources and tips for you to be able to position yourself at the front of the pack for a new career.

Get the right certificates. 

If you don’t have a degree in a technology-related area of study, don’t sweat it. Most jobs within the field don’t even require you to have an undergraduate degree at all — but obtaining the right certificates is key to building your skillset. Here are the most basic and helpful certificates you’ll want to start with. Computing Technology Industry Association

CompTIA A+). This is your boot camp of certificates and where you’ll want to begin. It will help you learn how to do basics like data recovery, networking, hardware configuration, and troubleshooting.

Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). ITIL is a standardized technology management set of practices used worldwide by small and large organizations from Microsoft to NASA. Think of this as your IT SOP. This five-tiered program, ranging from basic skills to mastery, will help you build your skills in technology management.

Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA). MTA is not just one certificate, but rather a set of entry-level certificates you can obtain based on your chosen career path, much like MOS-specific training in the military. The self-learning courses are free online through Microsoft, or you have the option of paying for an instructor-led course.

I hope this post helps you understanding the upgrading in the military, plus an article for a good job transition.
