After banning the troops from YouTube in 2007 for bandwidth and security issues, the Military is
to turn a quagmire into something positive.
The attempt, better known as the US Military’s new video sharing site, aptly named TroopTube , is already up and running. Potential members can register as a member of one of the three braches of the armed forces, a family member, or a civilian. Once registered, users can upload personal videos. But instead of being simply processed, this time the video is screened by a Pentagon employee to ensure that there isn’t anything naughty.
“A lot of people are excited … to be doing something for the people who make sacrifices,” said Alex Castro, the Chief Executive on the project. “We're proud of this.”
