Phil Weldon I got one of those, too. The company I worked for in 1989 made Automated Voice...
When I served time in our Navy I was buttigned such programmer-clerical-software sysadmin work. I was a ULM, which has a rank of three in the NATO standards, (Boot camp private is 1, full corporal 5, entry level sergeant 10), advancing to 6 during the service. We served in the Navy.
The operators were Army, sergeants and junior officers doing their stint at office work; 1 they were out of there as soon as they made full leutenents. They were all army folks; and they needed to find someone in blue if something serious needed to be fixed.
We were buttigned surprisingly important work, such as running the linear programming that did the first drafts of buttigning all the specialists and officers to positions.
We joked that it wbutt similar to the crews on galleys. The grunts doing the rowing were privates, Army. The goons swinging the whip were corporals and sergeants, also Army. The guys beating the drum and actually steering the ship were privates and corporals, Navy.
The army personell were often recruited among prisoners, allowing them to serve the sentence at twice the speed of normal jailtime.
1 It seems the "general's school" involves mandatory stints at offices near the Capital, and at some NATO command, at operative posts in both combat and peacekeeping modes, and then in a training facility.; do all five both at lieutenent and at major-colonel level. Leaves little time for anything else in a career.
