'Chinese crims' snatch 4.5 MILLION patient files from US hospitals


Many years ago...

Americans serving in Vietnam were allowed to mail home postage-free. All we had to do was put our rank, name, unit and APO and POSTAGE FREE on the envelope, appending below our service numbers.

For a lot of us, that was our Social Security number. It also appeared inside our belts, hats, boots and shoes, and on our duffel's. Ive seen some on second-hand clothing, and footlockers, too.
