The Army is warning about 12,000 military and civilian personnel once associated with a reserve command based at Fort Totten that they should check their credit records, after discovering that it cannot locate files containing information that could make them vulnerable to identity theft. The records cover reservists from Long Island, New York City and upstate who were assigned to the 77th Regional Readiness Command and its subordinate units from 2001 until the unit was absorbed by the 99th Regional Support Command in 2008. The files were discovered missing when the new command asked for an accounting of the old unit’s records. They could have been burned, shredded or stolen.
