Results of trial

On Tuesday, Pvt. Brad A. Wilkes, 1st Lt. J. Robert Kalsu Replacement Company, U.S. Army Garrison, was convicted at a Special Court-Martial of desertion (Art. 85, UCMJ) and two specifications of absence without leave (Art. 86, UCMJ).  Wilkes was found not-guilty of one specification of absence without leave (Art. 86, UCMJ).

The Military Judge sentenced Wilkes to confinement for seven months and a Bad Conduct Discharge.

Workstation procedures

To conserve energy, workstations should be shut down at the end of the day.

If there is a mission requirement to leave your workstation turned on during non-duty hours, you should completely log off of the computer (not just leave it locked).

Locked computers are the worst of both worlds; they needlessly consume energy, and they make it impossible for the NEC to run required patches and updates on the system. Failure to properly patch these systems puts the network at risk and subjects the computers to be removed from the wire.

Shut down your computers at the end of the day, every day (unless specifically notified otherwise for special scans or mitigation procedures).

NOTE: Patches will be automatically downloaded to your computer when they are turned on during the day. Occasionally, a restart will be required after first turning the computer on in the morning, and logging in.

Please direct any questions to the NEC Helpdesk, (270) 798-9300.
