    Credit Card and Personal ID

    Advertisements
    Why would a high ranking service man not have a personal id or readily available credit cards?

    His identity is confirmed (known him since he was a kid), I just don't understand not having regular id.

    The credit cards: I know he buys stuff, but, is there times where he can't use the cards?

    Edit: I've added additional information further in the posts. I also wanted to thank everyone for their responses. Sometime I just don't understand what is going on and needed a seasoned opinion. Thank you!

    There's no reason to not have personal ID. All military members should have a military ID card.

    And, some people don't do credit cards

    confused.. are you saying he doesn't have a military ID, or that he doesn't some other form of ID other than a military ID?

    as far as credit cards.. some people just don't like them and refuse to have them and live only by cash and cash/check/debit card only. Or are you saying he doesn't have debit card either?

    What do you mean? Does he have a military ID? What about a driver's license?

    Some people just don't have credit cards. Does he have a debit card, or no "plastic" at all?

    - why would being "high ranking" have anything to do with it? As JenniPenni said, he will have his military ID.

    You mean other than a military ID? Or including a military ID. Many many people don't have credit cards so that is fully believable. The no id is less believable but again what is included in the view of "personal" id. Driver's license? Military id? State id?

    If you don't drive no need for a DL. If you have a military id there is no need for a state id, if you have a driver license there is no need for a state id.

    Sounds very fishy......

    Your post doesn't make a lot of sense. I think we need more info. Can you explain? Does he have no ID at all (including military)? Did he tell you he doesn't have any credit cards, or was he trying to make a purchase (from you?) but had no card? Did he ask you to pay for something for him? If you give up more info and explain the situation, we can probably give you more help.

    And I don't know what you mean with your question about times when he can't use cards. Are you talking about the military not letting him use cards? If it's just a general question and you know he doesn't have a credit card, then that's not all that weird. Many people don't have credit cards because they find it hard not to overspend with them.

    Okay, this answers my question. He didn't drive as a kid, so no driver's license. I didn't realize that military ID took place of a state id.
