The Army has launched its own version of YouTube. Nicknamed Mil Tube, the software is open to all Defense Department personnel. It allows the sharing of videos behind a network firewall. Next Gov reports that the program is an addition to the extensive suite of secure social networking tools the service's Mil Tech Solutions office developed. Some of the videos you can find on Mil Tube include messages from senior leaders, training instruction and videos of enhancements to weapons systems. As of Tuesday, MilTube had several hundred videos from all the services and 88,500 users around the Defense community.
