Mark Patton reports:

Army officials say a CD containing the personal information of nearly 25,000 Non-Appropriated Fund retiree records was lost in the mail.

The potentially compromised information contains names, Social Security numbers and other retirement data such as retirement date, type of retirement, amount of life insurance carried, term data and dates of service.
