Wow, actually that’s very cool.  I wonder if it’ll be available for normal use in the States.

This is a very useful application.  Even though I don’t like Apple’s iPod , I’m glad to see that it’s helping out the military.  I think a software like this can easily be created for the iPod by adding the text files in the notes.  You can already do that just by dragging and dropping it using iTunes.  It would be nice if this were readily available though.
