DoD ID card appointments are made online by visiting the RAPIDS website at
https://rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd.mil/ . Although most JB MDL ID card offices accept walk-ins we highly encourage everyone to make an appointment to avoid long wait times.
NOTE FOR DEPENDENTS: Sponsors must be present to issue dependent ID cards. If the sponsor cannot be present the dependent must have a DD Form 1172 signed by the sponsor in order to receive an ID card. Information on how to obtain a DD Form 1172 can be found on the RAPIDS website.
Individual military departments do not maintain files or records for people no longer on active duty. When an individual is separated from military service, because of retirement, discharge from active duty or death, his or her Field Personnel File (containing all military and health records) is forwarded for storage to the National Personnel Records Center (Military). The Records Center is under the jurisdiction of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) of the United States Government. For information on how to obtain military records contact the National Personnel Records Center at:

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests
The Freedom of Information Act generally provides that any person has a right, enforceable in court, to obtain access to federal agency records, except to the extent that such records (or portions of them) are protected from public disclosure by one of nine exemptions <http://www.foia.af.mil/exemptions/index.asp> , or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions.
The principles of government openness and accountability underlying the FOIA are inherent in the democratic ideal: "The basic purpose of the FOIA is to ensure an informed citizenry, vital to the functioning of a democratic society, needed to check against corruption and to hold the governors accountable to the governed."
