Nice article.  I'm curious to see what the comments spawn.  I'm just waiting for the whole "I know what the Army needs better than you do" argument.

jomni:
The comments in the post assume that the military uses games to make them better at fighting.  But that's definitely not the point since they need to train with real weapons and equipment for this.
I think Computer training is there for the officers and NCO's to hone their tactics and management skills.   Most recruits will not be able to play these military training aids.
