I’ve been asked to get this message to our members in hopes that you will help reach out to veterans to make the aware of the situation.
There’s been a noticeable increase in the number of visitors to DEERS (Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System) offices throughout Kentucky without the proper identification. Please know you will be turned away if this is the case.
Veterans and retirees may drive more than an hour sometimes to update their military ID card. If that card is already expired, it cannot count towards the two forms of Identification needed to procure a new card.
We recommend you call ahead before visiting a particular office to verify the office is open and you will have all the required documents with you.
For more info on how to obtain an ID card & contact information for every Kentucky DEERS location, please visit: https://kentuckyguard.dodlive.mil/contact-us-faq/id-cards-deers/ or search “Kentuckyguard Deers” in your internet browser.
