Here is a message from Commissioned Corps Headquarters.  "The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) cyber intrusion investigation is ongoing.  While there is no evidence Commissioned Corps systems were compromised, OPM maintains security clearance information that may contain Commissioned Corps officer data.  The OPM system containing this data may have been compromised.  For this reason, please continue to check the OPM Announcements at and reference the OPM FAQs for more information.

COA is greatly concerned about the massive data breach at OPM.  We support efforts to strengthen our cybersecurity throughout the government but especially for the uniformed services.
