Announcements 

Update for Army civilian retirees!

DoD Civilian Retiree ID cards are no longer valid or accepted as identification at federal installations. At Fort Drum, civilian retirees will need to stop at the Visitor Control Center and submit to a voluntary background check to obtain a pass to the installation.

Civilian retirees who possess REAL ID-compliant identification and retirement documents (SF-50) as proof of eligibility can complete the brief background check and register with VCC staff. Once registered, retirees will have access for one year and may enter at any gate. When entering Fort Drum, retirees will just need to present their REAL ID and SF-50 to gate personnel. At the end of the year, they can re-register at the VCC and submit to the same voluntary background check.

Civilian retirees without REAL ID will need to stop at the Visitor Control Center to voluntarily submit to a background check and receive a one-day pass upon each visit to the installation.

To learn how to apply for a REAL ID license, visit https://dmv.ny.gov/driver-license/federal-real-id.
