An employee noticed that some pages were missing from a laboratory log book on October 15.  The pages may have contained the names, last four digits of Social Security numbers, appointment information and tests of 1,950 VAMC visitors.  Veterans who visited between January 1 and October 8 may have been affected.  The military believes the most likely cause of the loss is that the pages were shredded.

UPDATE (12/2/10): An VA investigation determined that the information was most likely accidentally shredded.
