Military ID?

Well, tomorrow is the day I (hopefully) get my military ID.  It’s been a long time coming….

A few weeks ago, we made an appointment at Willow Grove to get my ID done.  I spoke to someone in the ID Center there, and made a list of everything I would need (driver’s license, original birth certificate, original Social Security card, marriage license).  After realizing that I would have to go get a new ID after his reenlistment went through anyway, we decided to just wait.  And wait, and wait and wait….

It took much longer than we thought for the reenlistment to go through.  Even after he was in Allentown, I was crossing my fingers that it would go through so I could get my ID there when I was visiting him.  But, alas, no.

Now, the enlistment went through. Tony is in NC, and I am armed with several documents, also including Power Of Attorney.  I have called and talked with at LEAST 3 different people in 2 different ID offices, and was just TODAY informed that by “original marriage license” I need to have a “court certified marriage license”.  Good thing I made one more phone call!  After freaking out as to when I was going to plan in a trip to the downtown courthouse in the next day, I called and gave what information I needed over the phone, so they could have it ready for me to pick up.

As God would provide, my 1pm client today cancelled, and I work one block from the courthouse.  So, I walked over, and picked up my “court certified” document, and now am hopefully good to go!  After picking it up, I tweeted “Sick already of having to jump through hoops with regards to the Military…Good thing I work 1 block away from the courthouse”

I am hoping that I have all the documents I need now, and am able to take care of everything tomorrow.  I’ll keep you posted!

The moral of the story is do what you can do when you can do it, and don’t wait!  Something else will always come up!

    You are right. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Sometimes much easier to say than to do.
