Strategic, operational, and tactical intelligence are the eyes and ears of the United States Department of Defense. Without a steady supply of reliable, actionable intelligence, all weapon systems and warriors essentially are rendered deaf, dumb, and blind. Within the Marine Corps and Navy, however, there is a chronic scarcity of proficient, highly trained intelligence analysts to support an increasing operational tempo around the world. Most naval intelligence officers and senior enlisted can regurgitate doctrinal intelligence roles and functions, communications architecture, intelligence tasks, bandwidth management, IT systems procurement and dissemination schemes.
