Library: DoD Civilian Retiree Card

Are you a retired DoD civilian?  
For information on how to receive your DoD Civilian Retiree Card, visit Uniformed Serviced ID Card.

What is the purpose of the card?
Since many retired DoD civilians have no way of identifying their association with the Department of Defense, this card provides them with a trusted credential to establish their identity and affiliation. Some, but not all, military installations allow retired civilians access to MWR facilities with proper identification.
