Gee, Secretary of Veterans' Affairs, thanks for the letter about the "stolen" electronic data (oh, come on, we all know the guy sold it), including all our social security numbers.
As for the VA being on top of the situation — our bank was frantically informing us to yank our ssan off their website as a user name, about a week before anybody opened their mouth on the VA's end. The VA knew knew, and only today are they getting us these warning letters.
Then again, the Army Corps of Engineers built the levees around New Orleans. And Marines can't tell the enemy from a family at home in their own house.
Put on a uniform, lose your brains. Or expect us who used to wear uniforms that ours are still gone.
