Military retirees and families are getting new IDs for the first time in three decades


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The Defense Department is replacing its 30-year-old identification cards for military families, retirees, and civilians workers in an effort to upgrade the cards and avoid security risks.

The Defense Department began issuing the new IDs in July and some are already in circulation. But Michael Sorrento, director of the Defense Manpower Data Center, said cardholders don’t have to scramble for the new IDs. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, he said he doesn’t want ID facilities jam-packed with people, so the old cards do not need to be replaced until they expire or the phase-out date in January 2026. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/military-retirees-and-families-are-getting-new-ids-for-the-first-time-in-three-decades-1.642754
