Kiki's brother was working a special ops assignement and Al states that it's hard to get the information on where he was and what he was doing in 'Nam. A similar problelm is encountered with Operation Lazarus in "The Leap Home, pt 2". As it is a top secret mission, it's not going to be just "lying around" where any computer can find the information. Al does say that they'll try to track him down in present day but, obviously, that's not the top priority on Al's mind.
Okay, I have a question about this. Did Al not know whether Kiki's brother returned from Nam, or he just didn't know where he was "now"? Because if Kiki got the telegram in the original history, then they'd know he returned. I guess I don't get why the secret special Ops thing was necessary.

As the the wife thing, in my head I can hear the conversation:
Al: WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME HE'D REMARRIED, YOU BUCKET OF BOLTS??!
Ziggy (snottily): You didn't ask, Admiral.
