Thumbdrives are Reinstated

Almost a year and a half after DoD banned the use of external computer flash drives, officials now say limited use is ok. But you can't use your your own. Only those that are distributed by the military are eligible. Troops in Afghanistan and Iraq who need the devices to carry or transfer critical data will be the first to get them. Vice Adm. Carl V. Mauney, deputy commander of U.S. Strategic Command, told reporters only a few will be sent to the war zone, but eventually more kits will be created and distributed.
