The military is plowing through old records to find any and all information on the Army's ocean dumping of chemical weapons decades ago, a high priority effort to determine where they all are located and what danger they pose today.

The Army hopes to finish its record search by the end of March, said Addison Davis, an assistant secretary of the Army.

"What we're conducting right now is probably the most comprehensive search on records ... that has ever been done," he said. "Our goal is to compile the best, most comprehensive, up-to-date information possible."
