Why every veteran should know what's in their military service records

Sean Bigley writes: "If I had a dollar for every time I've heard a security clearance holder say, 'I had no clue that was in my file,' I’d be a rich man. The context varies – human resources files, security databases, law enforcement records, etc. – but the surprise is rarely a good one. Common examples include an old disciplinary write-up, a long-forgotten security infraction or a police report with highly unflattering details about the subject. Armed Forces veterans are not immune to this phenomenon. Like an elephant, the military rarely forgets. But just as the military's institutional memory is long, so is its capacity for human error."
