3.  ITEM OF INTEREST - USA Today Article:  "Raytheon's $70,000 Magic Bullet"

Here's a recent article which fellow artillerymen might find particlularly interesting.  It's written from a business/investing perspective, but nonetheless interesting for the insight into the impact of technology on today's weapon systems and strategies.


Have a great week.

Joe Paniccia (USMA '84)
