Marine Commandant: You Can Have Purple Hair in Our Cyber Force

The Marine Corps is creating a new cyber unit, the top officer said Monday, and you won't need to meet those strict Devil Dog hair regulations to join.

The service will stand up a new cyber auxiliary, Commandant Gen. Robert Neller said at the Future Security Forum 2019 in Washington.

"If anybody wants to join, you can sign up. You can have purple hair, too, but no EGA,” he said, referring to the Marines’ famous eagle, globe and anchor insignia.

Since Neller said the members of the Marine Corps' new Cyber Auxiliary division won't earn the coveted symbol new Marines get after completing boot camp or earning their commission, this program is likely to be strictly for civilians or veterans.

The military services have struggled to retain cyber uniformed personnel. Young enlisted troops are often attracted to lucrative six-figure salaries they can earn in the private sector.
