+ - US Military FAIL! Service Members' History Lost, AGAIN!

tqk writes "As the son of a WWII serviceman (a Flight Lieutenant/Tail Gunner in a B17 bomber) and an IT geek, I think this is appalling. On PBS Newshour last night, I saw a story about this along with an interview with the ProPublica reporter (?) who's on it. Since then, I've learned this has been going on as far back as the war in VietNam. "Backups? What're those?" Entire service histories are being lost! Historians have been screaming about it and veterans are being forced to drag lawyers in to prove they did what they did. $DEITY!!!111

See ProPublica."
