It seems that a civilian employee with the National Guard did not complete the required DoD and DA employee training to use a government computer or network.

“A congressman is seeking a Defense Department Inspector General investigation of a civilian employee with the National Guard who allegedly sent an email to troops asking them to lobby for an Army program.
