RFID in Military Personnel

Newsmax is reporting that Verichip is actively marketing RFID implants for military personnel, replacing the traditional dog tags now worn by service members. The device would be placed in the arm's triceps muscle, and would contain the individuals sixteen digit number - effectively giving medical and administration personnel access to computerized records based on that number by using a scanner.

Many questions remain unanswered however, such as the ramifications of the implant being present upon release from military service, how to read the implant in various conditions, and possible unauthorized reading of the chip by non-military personnel.
