Everyone I have who knows says the military is no longer requiring code, I'm not sure of the date they stopped teaching it however. Now: they may still offer code in some schools as an "Elective" but it's not required any more..

I do recall a few years ago (Well perhaps a few decades) the CIA was advertising for CW operators (IN QST no less) I don't know how much response they got from the ham community. CIA's code of "Don't talk about your work" and ham radio are kind of opposed. But some folks can do both. I have things about my job I don't talk about on the bands.
