Over the past decade, the operational environment has changed dramatically and the LWN has become a critical part of that change. The Army depends on cyberspace operations, the GIG, and LWN NETOPS to defend our network. The defense of our network allows sustained operations in support of mission command to enable unified land operations. The DOD Strategy for Operating in Cyberspace established cyberspace as an operational domain which impacts Signal support to military commanders. As a relevant operational domain, cyberspace along with the GIG and LWN, must be defended.

As the new Chief of Signal took command, the U.S. Army Signal Corps made history and paid tribute to it. Troops used historical semaphore flags to relay commands during the ceremony on 25 July 2012 for outgoing commander, MG Alan R. Lynn, and incoming commander, MG LaWarren V. Patterson. In front of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and community leaders from around the Central Savannah River Area, MG Patterson became the 36th Chief of Signal.
