Military investigators are trying to find out how the full names and Social Security numbers of some 100,000 Navy and Marine Corps aviators and aircrew members wound up on a public Navy Web site. The records of every aviator and aircrew member who logged flight time in the last 20 years were posted on the Navy Safety Center's Web site for six months before a member of the public alerted officials. The data was also included on more than 1,000 computer disks that were sent to all Navy and Marine Corps commands, according to the Washington Post.
