Video Virtual Training

April 29, 2009

Oh brave new world...

Our Digital Nation team's got another report this week. It's on the U.S. military's growing arsenal of digital weaponry and tools.

The rock'em, sock'em clip here is on training programs at Camp Pendleton, CA.

They've got another video on virtual reality therapy -- how it's being used for PTSD.

And what about those drone pilots? Their workday is sitting before a computer -- somewhere in the U.S. -- remotely manning missile-ready drones high over Afghanistan that search and destroy the enemy.

What's the impact of this new kind of warfare training on soldiers/marines? Explore here.
