The new campaign, titled More Than a Num- ber, references the personally iden- tifiable information that VA en- courages Veterans to protect. "We recognize that for Veterans, as for all Americans in the digital age, identity theft is a growing concern," said Steph Warren, VA's Chief Information Officer. "Our goal is to help educate and protect those who have protected this great country." VA's Office of Information and Technology recently announced the launch of a new website con- taining identity theft resources for Veterans and their beneficiaries. The website can be found at and fea- tures educational information, in- teractive multimedia and links to other online identity theft prevention resources. The campaign also in- cludes a toll-free help line offering support for Veterans, their benefi- ciaries and VA employees who have questions-and concerns about identity theft. The toll-free number is 1-855-578-5492, and it will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., EST. In defending against identity theft, VA understands that awareness is critical. With More Than a Number, VA aims to educate Veterans on the risk of identity theft and how to avoid becoming a victim. "Small changes can have big consequences," Warren added. "Lit- tle things like shredding banking statements before throwing them away or using strong and unique passwords for all of your accounts can make a significant difference in protecting your identity from thieves who may try to use your personal in- formation." VA takes seriously its obligation to properly safeguard any person- al information within its possession and has in place a strong multi-lay- ered defense to combat evolving cy- ber security threats. VA is commit- ted to protecting Veteran informa- tion, continuing its efforts to strengthen information security and putting in place the technology and processes to ensure that Veteran data at VA is secure. In the event of a loss of VA data, VA has safeguards in place to pro- tect against identity fraud. Acting out of an abundance of caution, VA's standard practice is to provide free credit protection service enroll- ment, monitoring services and re- ports, fraudulent charge alerts, and fiaud resolution and identity theft in- urance to individuals affected by a VA data breach with a reasonable risk for the potential misuse of any sensitive personal information. For additional information on identity theft, visit or contact the VA Identity Safety Service at The Walsh County Veterans Serv- ice Office remains committed to as- sisting veterans with accessing their benefits.

Look- ing back on last year, I feel like that was just the tutorial for this year. This year I feel like I've done a lot of expanding on experiences I leamed last year and learning some new experiences as well. At the end of last year, I got the opportunity to write an article. This year, I have been writing articles fairly steadily. Because of this, I have become much more familiar with what should go in every article. The who, what, when, where, and why, putting in as many details about something that you can, and making sure that you tie a story to the area. Another thing that should be mentioned is the fact that said is not dead; said is the sole dictator who executes any competitors who dare intrude into its empire. I also became more advanced in managing people. When I first had to answer phones, I had basically no idea what I was doing. Now I have become less of a pushover who is willing to pass the phone on to some- one else as fast as I can. Also, by answering phones, I now know a bit more about some of the problems that some of our subscribers go through and how to fix them. Of course I do realize that I am not the perfect employee, I'm only sixteen, but I do know quite a bit more about working in an office and newspapers than I did before.
