Family Assistance Center Feature Story

Happy New Year!

I cannot believe it is now 2019!!!!

Instead of trying to convince you to pick up a new hobby, start a new resolution, or provide tips to make it through the holiday season; I invite you to do one simple thing that can make the transition into 2019 that much easier. All dependents with an ID take time look at your ID for the expiration date to make sure that it is not expiring or, to note when it will expire. I put a reminder in my phone to make an appointment. Rushing to a military instillation to pick up or drop off something to your service member can be stressful enough without the added headache of finding out the hard way that you have an expired ID. If you find that your ID will need to be replace soon log on to the Rapids ID appointment site: https://rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd.mil. If you need any further help don hesitate to contact the FAC in the armory of your soldier to find out how! I know this is a simple task, but sometimes in the holiday season we are so overwhelmed with distractions that taking thirty seconds to check something that is often overlooked is a great thing. While you’re at it, check your entire wallet to see what will be expiring in 2019 and make a note of it, this way you are not pulled over with an expired driver’s license either!
