Joint Base Charleston notifies airmen of possible breach of personal information

Harve Jacobs reports:

A mistake made at a medical clinic caused a potential breach of personal information of current and former airmen at Joint Base Charleston.

The base says folders of paper records were improperly created at a base clinic.

A former airman says he received a letter from the 628th medical group mentioning a “potential privacy issue.”
