One of AFIT's finest, Lt Col Christopher Hammond, No.1 Thunderbirds jet and AFIT alumni earning his Master's in Cyber Warfare in 2011, spoke to an AFIT audience  on 19 June 2015  about his career, what it's like to be a member of the Thunderbirds team, and insights into how his cyber degree helped him to be successful in his post AFIT career.
Lt Col Hammond earned his Master's degree in cyber warfare at AFIT in 2011 advised by Dr. Robert Mills, Director  of the Center for Cyberspace Research and the Air Force Cyberspace Technical Center of Excellence.  " My degree from AFIT has helped in many aspects of my career so far.  It took me out of my comfort zone and exposed me to a discipline that I didn't have a background in.  As a result I became better prepared for follow on assignments.  Earning an AFIT Master's degree in cyber warfare exposed me to both the space and cyber domains and ultimately enhanced my overall perspective and understanding of the greater Air Force mission."
