“ . . my information was on the laptop that was stolen. This story doesn't account for the stolen or missing computer backup tape from Indianapolis Regional VA that has over 16,000 vets, nor the missing or stolen laptop from the VA in Marion . . they were missing four laptops but three have been found. The fourth continues missing. I sure hope they get their "stuff" together soon. JDub [Edited by Don W]
