Been deleting this thread, but I read John Posada's post.

"The only justification I can think of for doing it that way is some
countries other than US put the day before the the month...Dick...are
you outside of the US?"

One other justification is that your company is ISO registered. The ISO standard
for dates is YYYY-MM-DD or YYMMDD with the hyphens optionally replaced with
backslashes or omitted altogether.

Another justification is it's the best way to write dates for them to sort
correctly in computer directories. Or, perhaps some of the intended audience is
outside the US and they wish to adopt one standard.
