More documentation necessary to replace, renew ID cards
Homeland Security Directive 12 now requires retirees and family members seeking to renew or replace a military identification card to provide two types of ID.
Retirees and family members needing identification cards must have two of the following types of current identification, one of which must include a photo:
Driver's license or ID issued by a state or outlying U.S. commonwealth or possession
ID card issued by federal, state or local government agencies or entities
School ID card with a photograph
Voter's registration card
U.S. military ID card
Certificate of U.S. citizenship
Certificate of naturalization
For people younger than 18, who are unable to present a document previously listed, they may bring:
School record or report card
Clinic, doctor or hospital record
Day-care or nursery school record
The listing above is not all inclusive. A list of acceptable documents can be found at http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf, Page 5.
Before visiting a military ID card issuing facility, people may want to call first to determine what specific documents may be required, and to verify the process to renew or replace an ID card.
