    Military ID Card

    Advertisements
    I have all my paperwork in order to get my first id card but is there anything I should know about the card or is it just like a driver's license? Are they sticklers with making you get a new one with every new hair color? Aren't I auto-enrolled in Tricare or do I still need to set that up? Any details I should know?

    Similar to a licence. Bring two forms of ID, one of which is a picture state id, and the other needs to be either birth cirtificate, passport, or other approved id.
    Don;t be late for your appointment. after 5 minutes, they WILL cancel your appointment.
    don't lose it!
    No stickers for hair color changes. (never heard of that before for any id.)

    Your sponsor should have signed you up for DEERS, and tri care is a part of that. Unless you are both doing that when you go to get your ID.
    If you want my opinion on your relationship or life issues, just ask Villanelle!

    As Guy said.. two forms of ID, along withe DD1172 that your husband should have sent/signed.

    You do not have to get a new with every change. Some bases require when new rank is achieved, but that's rare. Usually, just a new card when it expires.

    You are automatically enrolled into Tricare Standard. You can call them or go online for more information.

    Just be mentally prepared. It's going to be the worst picture you've ever taken, and you're going to have to show it to people ALL THE TIME.

    oh god this. It was early in the morning, I was still jet lagged, he told me he'd count to 3 and he didn't. It looks like a mug shot. DH says 'thug life!' every time I hand him my ID
