The U.S. Marine Corps produces tactical and operational intelligence for battlefield support. Its IC component is comprised of all intelligence professionals in the Marine Corps responsible for policy, plans, programming, budgets, and staff supervision of intelligence and supporting activities within the USMC. The department supports the commandant of the Marine Corps in his role as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, represents the service in Joint and Intelligence Community matters, and exercises supervision over the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity. The department has service staff responsibility for geospatial intelligence, advanced geospatial intelligence, signals intelligence, human intelligence, counterintelligence, and ensures there is a single synchronized strategy for the development of the Marine Corps Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Enterprise.

The National Security Agency/Central Security Service is the nation's cryptologic organization that coordinates, directs, and performs highly specialized activities to protect U.S. information systems and to produce foreign signals intelligence information. A high-technology organization, NSA is at the forefront of communications and information technology. NSA is also one of the most important centers of foreign language analysis and research within the U.S. government and is said to be the largest employer of mathematicians in the United States and perhaps the world. Founded in 1952, NSA is part of the Department of Defense and a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community. The Agency supports military customers, national policymakers, and the counterterrorism and counterintelligence communities, as well as key international allies. Its workforce represents an unusual combination of specialties: analysts, engineers, physicists, mathematicians, linguists, computer scientists, researchers, as well as customer relations specialists, security officers, data flow experts, managers, administrative officers and clerical assistants.

Cox retired from active duty in November 2013 as a two-star rear admiral. His last tour was dual-hatted as the Commander of the Office of Naval Intelligence and Director of the National Maritime Intelligence Integration Office, reporting to the Director of National Intelligence. His tour prior to that was Director of Intelligence (J2,) for U.S. Cyber Command. Concurrent with both these tours, as the senior intelligence officer in the Navy, he served as the Naval Intelligence Community Leader.


Following commissioning in 1980, Cox served as a squadron intelligence officer in Airborne Early Warning Squadron ONE TWO ONE (VAW-121,) deploying twice to the Mediterranean embarked on USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) for Lebanon and Libya crisis operations. He then served concurrently as acting Carrier Air Wing SEVEN (CVW-7) intelligence officer for northern European operations. In 1984, he was assigned to the Chief of Naval Operations Intelligence Plot (CNO-IP,) as a watch officer and CNO briefer. He then served as Deputy Director for International Programs and Assistant Operations Officer at Naval Intelligence Command, including serving as an action officer for the acquisition of a foreign threat anti-ship missile system. In 1990, he reported to the U.S. Seventh Fleet as Assistant Intelligence Officer, embarked on USS Blue Ridge (LCC-19), and took part in deployment to the Persian Gulf for Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and in operations in the Western Pacific during Operation Fiery Vigil, the Mount Pinatubo eruption.


His tours as a captain included branch head for Future Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting Systems (N202/N203) on the OPNAV staff. He was then selected as the first intelligence officer to serve as a Senior Fellow on the CNO Strategic Studies Group (SSG XXIII.) He then commenced a three-year tour as the Commander of the U.S. Central Command Joint Intelligence Center, supporting combat operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other counter-terrorism actions.


A retired Air Force intelligence officer accepted a plea deal with federal prosecutors last year admitting to illegally possessing hundreds of top secret and classified documents, according to court records filed Friday.


In interviews with ABC News, Buttigieg, his superior officers in Afghanistan, and others paint a portrait of a six-month deployment during which he drafted intelligence reports from inside a shipping container, ate midnight rations of breakfast for dinner and shuttled officers around Kabul or, occasionally, further afield. And while there was a constant undercurrent of danger from rocket attacks on the base or roadside bombs, Buttigieg's own account of his time overseas is, like much of his candidacy, a departure from the norm for a presidential biography.


Buttigieg joined the Navy Reserve in 2009, when he was 27, as an intelligence officer through the Reserve's direct commission program offered to applicants with academic degrees. It made him an officer without first having to go through the months of officer training, as most did.


Thomas Gary, a senior petty officer at Great Lakes at the time who knew Buttigieg, took no issue with Buttigieg's use of the direct commission program and said his impression of the Democratic candidates was \"smart, smart, smart.\"


In addition to his duties as an analyst, Buttigieg said his afternoons often involved driving senior officers around Kabul. There were also trips where Buttigieg volunteered to bolster the security for other convoys from the base. 041b061a72
