U.S. Military Uses YouTube to Get Its Story Out

The U.S. military has recently begun posting videos of troops operating in Iraq on the video-sharing Web site YouTube.

The military's YouTube channel show troops in a number of situations, including fighting insurgents, attending to a wounded Iraqi family, and destroying weapons stocks.

The military says the videos give them a chance to show another side of the war in Iraq.

Melissa Block talks with Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, a spokesperson for the Multi-National Forces in Iraq.
