The Marine Corps does not invest the time or money into the restricted officer community that it needs to in order to make these Marines true duty experts in cyber. The case of the 06xx restricted officer community uniquely highlights this deficiency as a result of the massive growth in cyber responsibilities from the Marine Component MARFORCYBER down to the lowest network enclave. There are changes that the Marine Corps can make that will positively impact the restricted officer communities and address the education and professional development disparity 1 First, the Marine Corps needs to change the educational management of the restricted officer community and allow them to attend resident technical and professional courses in a manner similar to the U.S. Army Warrant Officer programs and 2 address the technical competence within the restricted officer community by taking a hard look at the continuation boards for the Chief Warrant Officers.
