US Miltary launches TroopTube for Veterans Day
Since 2007, the Department of Defense has restricted overseas military personal from accessing a number of popular sites including YouTube and MySpace for reasons largely attributed to bandwidth usage and possible security issues.
In honor of Veteranís Day, Military OneSource (a service of the Department of Defense) has launched TroopTube - a YouTube-like site that gives all active-duty military personnel and their families a place to share their videos online.
