The VA has also recently lost another laptop with personnel data on it. Last time my info was among the 25 million or so vet's taken when the laptop was stolen from an employee's house. I received a letter months later stating that my information probably hadn't been compromised.
The question about the laptops isn't so much that they're missing, but what is on them.
I got that letter and every vet I know got that letter and oddly not a one of them's information was on that laptop according to the VA. I was down at the VFW and we had a good laugh that nobody know of a single vet that info was on the laptop in question. Needless to say, we all thought that letter smelled of BS.
Like the VA knows who's' information is where, please! Everytime I go to a VA office they can't find a simple form or where that simple form is at, better yet what information is on what laptop. The VA mean "Very Aggravating", "Very Annoying", amongst others.
