Credit Monitoring Offer to Veterans Blocked by Judge

WASHINGTON D.C. - A judge blocked the government from publicizing its credit monitoring offer to Veterans.

The personal information of millions of veteran was exposed after a computer was stolen. Veterans from across Washington were in Richland over the weekend for a conference and this issue continues to be a hot topic.

The President of the Washington Vietnam Veterans of America said the information should not be kept under wraps.  Jim Pace said, "We'll it's too late, if they were going to do it they should have done it right away. The information is out."  

The government offered a free credit monitoring program for a year.  There is a hearing on the matter this Friday in Kentucky.
