Veteran's Affairs to Veterans: Oops. Sorry

Oh, jeez.

Did a member of your family serve in the military, and was discharged after 1976? Don’t be surprised if, in the upcoming months, MasterCard mails you a note asking why he/she hasn’t paid his/her bill and if the new flat screen TV that was purchased with this card is any good.

 Why?  Because Veteran Affairs has managed to allow 26.5 [B][I]MILLION[/I][/B] names and social security numbers to be stolen.
