Comment What's so Hard to Understand? (Score 4, Informative) 192

Anything that improves the efficiency and effectiveness of our forces deserves recognition. If writing code and automating or stream-lining a process is successful, write the person who did it up for a citation or medal. I did it in the navy 20 years ago and received a NAM (Navy Achievement Award) for my efforts. Not all medals given in the military are for combat duties.

Don't try to find ways to cut costs or save money by skirting around your contractual obligations. You contract says to destroy the hard drives. You MUST destroy them. You WILL lose your contract if you do not.

If you have a Security department, take you concern to them or your Contracts Manager for this contract. They will tell you the same thing...especially if it's a classified program.
