    Stateside finally!
    HQMC MANPOWER INFORMATION SYSTEMS DIVISION (MI) WAS NOTIFIED
    ON 14 MARCH 2006 BY A NAVAL POST GRADUATE SCHOOL STUDENT THAT A
    THUMB DRIVE CONTAINING PARTIAL RECORDS OF 207,750 MARINES HAD BEEN
    LOST. THE DRIVE WAS BEING USED FOR A RESEARCH PROJECT AND
    CONTAINED PRIVACY ACT DATA TO INCLUDE NAME, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER,
    MARITAL STATUS, AND ENLISTMENT CONTRACT INFORMATION. BECAUSE THE
    DATA WAS SAVED IN AN ENCODED SOFTWARE FORMAT THAT IS IN LIMITED
    DISTRIBUTION AND THE LOCATION OF THE LOSS WAS ABOARD A GOVERNMENT
    INSTALLATION, THE RISK ASSOCIATED WITH THE DATA LOSS IS CONSIDERED
    TO BE RELATIVELY LOW. TO DATE, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THE INFORMATION
    HAS BEEN COMPROMISED. THE NAVAL POST GRADUATE SCHOOL IS CURRENTLY
    CONDUCTING A DETAILED INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE FACTS
    SURROUNDING THE CASE.
