The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs said it could not provide information on how the veterans got their tags without revealing their identities. But VA officials said the agency does not keep a list of its retired dog tags and they are not for sale. VA officials said the agency has a system that would alert the agency to possible theft of a dog tag, and that if that happens the agency would notify the veteran.

On its website, the agency said it could not release the names of veterans listed on a dog tag because of the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, even in cases of a known loss.

I am a veteran.

I have been to three different VA hospitals over the years and have had my dog tag number changed several times. All three times the tags were in the hands of civilians and have the same problems with it. All were in the hands of civilian personnel and the tags disappeared. VA is not forthcoming with information and as a disabled veteran I have had enough.

My experience was not as bad as another vet who went through 6 hospitals over 25 years. They had all of his information, and the hospital officials were unable to tell him who it belonged to. His VA ID had been lost several times, and he even had it engraved in an attempt to find his ID. He had to have it engraved on two occasions.

I would suggest that if we are getting the dog tags back, the information in them should be kept there.

I think it should be kept to prevent the same thing. Not that I've had any experience at all, but I imagine that would at least be a fair amount of work on the part of the VA to prevent it.

Just like on our current military ID. It's already has all kinds of information with personal information on it.

I know some vets have a hard time keeping track of personal info etc, so to be on the safe side I say this should be kept secure, in paper file. All info could be input into some system.

No reason to keep the info on dog tags. But the info should be kept secure. It should be in paper form. There are too many instances of info being erased.

My guess is that if they were going to make changes in the vet ID that it would be as much about security as anything. My understanding of vet ID is that there should be no identifying info on them.

I understand the idea but is it practical? There's no question that there are vets out there that have had their info stolen or sold by folks that had their documents in unsecured file drawers.

That doesn't quite cut it though because as you know those IDs are currently made of iron that are stamped to have unique ID numbers. So they have serial numbers. You can't get unique ones without iron anymore.

I still say it was too little too late, a few hours after they had been hacked and before they patched things up.

It may just be more about having one less "place" to check so that things won't go missing.

They never claimed they had done anything about stealing the information. They're claiming they have safeguards in place to keep the information safe. They claimed they had had their security and data centers breached and that their database was stolen. But they never made claims of theft from them as you guys mentioned. The fact that there was a breach in the first place is what they needed to deal with. It may be that they're dealing with it as more than just a hack, but maybe not.

Just to be clear, there have been a lot of other cases where the IDs were hacked before they were updated. These folks were the first ones. They were the first ones to be hacked.

The fact that they're dealing with it as more than just a hack, may be more because they're embarrassed that they've lost control of one of their ID's and don't want to make a big deal out of it.
