Army eyes PC incentives

Army Secretary Luis Caldera supports a plan to give PCs and Internet access to 6,000 selected recruits next year, with access to college courses through distance learning, Lt. Gen. William H. Campbell said last week.

In return, the recruits would have to commit to earning associate degrees during their four- to five-year tours, the service's chief information officer said.'Campbell spoke at the Army Directorate of Information Management Conference in Houston.

Campbell said he's more interested in recruits receiving technical training than in them taking a standard college curriculum (see story, page 43).
