Live on Tape from Afghanistan

Home movies, battlefield-style:

After restricting soldiers’ blogs and banning the use of YouTube, the U.S. Department of Defense will allow members of the military and their families to post user-generated content on a site just for them.

Delve Networks announced Tuesday that it has partnered with Marion, Montgomery, Inc. (MMI), a marketing and interactive agency, to launch TroopTube. The video-sharing site is part of DoD’s Military OneSource Web site. The site is available to 4 million members of the active military, National Guard and reserves, as well as their family members.

Nice. But when did the DoD block YouTube?
