    Hospitals and the military don't keep DNA...and why should they?  It's expensive and there's no reason to file DNA criteria.. Same with LEOs....although they take your fingerprints.  Prisoners do have DNA on file in many, maybe most states, and it's resulted to people being arrested for rape years after it happened.
    You can't beat DNA evidence...unless you're OJ and got a biased jury.

    The Military has been keeping DNA on file since 1992
    As such, they have enough of mine since both boys were in the Army.

    They can get my DNA when they pry it from my cold dead hands.

    Of course, if you were ever in the military, LE, arrested or hospitalized -- they probably already have it. 😡

    Have you vets ever really read your med files? Mine was very interesting- my hearing got better and there is no evidence of asbestos exposure or excessive radiation exposure, all 3 are false.

    The government is very good at creative clerical recording.

    After reading some of a above it appears they collect a sample but simply store it with the service members name on it. It isn't "processed" unless the service member is killed and requires ID. 

    Unless you wear a tinfoil hat...

    In 1990 we had pantographic dental X-rays and DNA samples added to our fingerprints and ID tags for post mortem identification. It was no secret.

    I was "issued" hepatitis C with the needleless vaccine injectors in 1978 Army basic training. It is still denied by VA.

    I was  diagnosed with the possibility of Hep 2 a several years ago by the VA..  I was stunned when I went to a a pre-treatment grouping of H 2 diagnosis in Augusta in GA several years ago..(Some strange members in that meeting.) While I met with  bunch of others with a similar blood profile (three ways you can get it is with sexual contact or blood transfer and dirty needles)  I was totally confused since my lifestyle didn't include either one of these for at least 20 years.  The nurse who was in charge said the blood test was very conclusive, said she would call in the unlikely event that the initial test was wrong.
    In the mean time,  I was given an extensive full blood test.  This was about in October, and I was told the results would be back in a few weeks.  No notification.  In January, I called the nurse who said the results were negative...I didn't have Hep 2.  She said she'd forgotten to call because of the hollidays.
    But 9 years later, my family doctor discovered an anamoly in my liver and tested for Hep 2..Again negative.  Something in my liver...diagnosed with gall stones.  Had my gall bladder removed,  which was full of stones and which I wish I'd kept) which may help.  Whatever, it's being on for a long time.

    Some of my wifes side grew up on a Reservation in Oklahoma when they were younger, supposedly some Native American back 2 generations, my FIL, my oldest son, and one of my nephews did the test and came back as "european" for some of it, no "native american", I guess the landbridge from Asia to North America was legit, LOL. FWIW, my FIL and his brothers and cousins definitely have Native American features, maybe the tests need to be more refined or specific for a region. 
    You and Elizabeth Warren, too?   I've got 1% NA.
    Not me, the bosses side of the family, I am pretty fly for a white guy though.

    My Hep C is genome 1a which is the most common. I was confused by Hep 2 which I found is a Hep C genome. Occasionally Hep C disappears for no reason. Congratulations!
