    NG Wives

    Advertisements
    Do you guys have mil ID cards? Do you use them?

    I don't really need one that I can think of since we don't even live near a base (well, close to Wright Pat, but I've been there once with DH ). Is it worth it/do you think we need to make the time to go get me one made?

    ETA: am I even supposed to get one? No clue and DH is no help
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    IDK about military wise whether you need one but I know some NG wives that have them because they get mil discounts at places

    I have one, but we live within 20 minutes to a navy base. Actually, right now I have 2. My regular guard dependent, and my AD dependent, since dh is deployed. I use it all the time, to go to the nex and commy. And, as April said, some use it for discounts. I do that, but it's not my sole reason for having it.

    The DD1173-1 is a Mil ID card for the dependents of Guard and Reserve members that aren't on active duty. If they're on active duty for more than thirty days, they will issue a DD1173.

    So, yes, you can get one. I don't think there is a rule that you have to get one - I think the only thing you would want it for would be for access to the base or medical benefits if you guys were using military medical benefits for any reason.

    When DH and I went to the nearest ID card facility to let them know we were married they made me one. I don't use it for anything.

    ETA: It's pink.

    I have one because we only have one car so sometimes I need to get on base to pick him up.

    how far are you from Wright Patt? when I was in Ohio I lived about 30-45 mins from there. My friend lives around where I did and I think she has one, her dad is NG. Not sure what she uses it for, other than TriCare.

    They sent me to get one when DH got his. I used it to get on base to see DH while he was in AIT since he was only a couple hours away. Then he learned he could have gotten in trouble for us being there...oops lol. I use it sometimes for discounts but not often.

    Oh and I used it when we had tricare and we went to the doctor.

    I got one when he deployed but if he hadn't I probably wouldn't have bothered. I don't remember ever using it for anything lol but it still sits behind my ID even though he's out now.
