During his famous Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln said that America is a nation “conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” He proceeded to question whether or not such a nation “can long endure.” The testing ground for such a nation, as he observed, was not in the halls of academia or before the high courts. Rather, Americans prove defend their nation’s existence on the field of battle.

Since the conception of America, the United States military has stood as a line of defense between the American people and those who would see this great land conquered. During World War 2, it was the American military that crumbled the fascist war machines of Europe. Even today in Iraq and Afghanistan, our troops are fighting to rid the world of the disease that is radical militant Islam.

Edmund Burke once said “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” The United States military is our nation’s promise to both ourselves and our neighbors that evil will never triumph.

The men and women who volunteer to stand downrange of enemy fire deserve our prayers.

Admiral Michael Rogers, Commander, U.S. Cyber Command

Michael S. Rogers was born in October 1959 in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated from New Trier High School, and is a graduate of Auburn University and the Naval War College.

Rogers received his commission trough the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps program and has served in the U.S. Navy since graduating from Auburn University. He started his career as a Surface Warfare Officer, working in naval gunfire support in support of operations off Grenada, Beirut, and maritime surveillance operations off El Salvador. During the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Rogers joined the military’s Joint Staff, where he specialized in computer network attacks.

He has served as director of intelligence for the military’s Pacific Command, and became Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and was named Commander of the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command, commander of the 10th Fleet and has held responsibility for all of the Navy’s cyber-warfare efforts.

In 2014, the Obama Administration announced Rogers’ nomination as director of the National Security Agency, and the commander of the U.S. offensive cyber-operations unit in the Department of Defense. Rogers has since been unanimously confirmed to head the U.S. Cyber Command.


Admiral Michael S. Rogers, Commander of the U.S. Cyber Command, has added his voice to that of Homeland Secretary Jeh Johnson who is considering whether the election system is critical infrastructure, like the power grid and financial sector, and subject to federal oversight.

“What is critical infrastructure in this digital age? Data, I would argue, is taking on a very different value in and of itself. And the ability of individuals to harness the tools of big data analytics now make access to large data concentrations…very attractive,” Rogers said. “I look at the election sequence for example, as an example of, ‘Do we need to step back and reassess this?’ Hey, look, this really is part of our critical infrastructure.”

Rogers, speaking at an event sponsored by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, quickly added that the military is not and won’t be involved in elections, but instead in tracking foreign attackers, if there are any. He also felt that, in the aftermath of the election, it would be necessary to take a long-term assessment on America’s election structure.
