    You knew I couldn't leave this one alone... here we go, the report
    does not say who they were issued to or whether they were direct
    support assets or training computers.  My experience shows that 75
    percent will be dupe entries in the accounting data base and that of
    the remaining 25 percent they were either issued to officers or senior
    enlisted who either misplaced them or turned them in without following
    registered procedures.
    Than again I am being highly optomistic some sailor could be
    supporting his "girl in every port"  v/r Michael CTOC USN Retired.
