Author's Notes:

No, the U.S. Army probably doesn’t actually stamp “Top Secret” or “Classified” in big, easy to read letters on sensitive documents in reality. However, this is much, much easier to read. Legibility won out in the end.

Edit: It appears I stand corrected. Though, I need to change the “Classified” folder to read “Top Secret” or some such. I made the addition to the art at the last minute to reinforce how important this info is, and uncharacteristically did not bother to go do the research yesterday due to time constraints. I’ve looked this stuff up before, but didn’t have a ready visual reference. Thanks for tips!

Also, it doesn’t matter if Bryant dumped the files onto the USB stick at the secure site or copied them to it later from a CD. The point is he has FILES.

One other thing, I should point out (even though I’ve never explicitly spelled it out) that the story takes place in the early fall of 2005 (ie pre-smartphone and social media). I do not know what government policies were in effect about USB drives during that time, but it’s fair to say that Bryant should not have this stuff regardless.
