In addition to "getting the word out" on DISAM's On-Site and MET opportunities, we plug a couple of computer-based issues. First, NETSAFA NETSAFA Naval Education & Training Security Assistance Field Activity has done a terrific job in collaborating with the community to develop an IMSO website (being briefed now at the IMSO conferences). Secondly, DISAM has made available its first web-based course - a version of the CONUS Orientation (entitled SAM-OC) - already seeing great applicability to the variety of personnel in the field. If you're an IMSO, sign up now on that new website; and the SAM-OC answers anyone delay in attending a DISAM in-resident course, or provides refresher information if it has been a while since your DISAM experience!
I want to thank "the community "for the exuberant support of the Journal - we are getting a great inflow of articles. You may have noticed the thickness of the last two has increased, as has the variety of the information. You make or break the success of the publication by ensuring the information is both appropriate and timely!
