  • 5. Managing Military ID Cards Just Got EasierBy Lisa DanielAmerican Forces Press ServiceThe center has launched its RAPIDS -- Real-timeAutomated Personnel Identification System -- self-service portal to allow anyone with the Defense Departments common accesscard, or CAC, to apply for family ID or retirement cards or update dependents statuses online."Its really exciting," Mary Dixon, the centers director, said. "Weve been working for some time now to try to improve and trans-form our whole ID card application process so people can do things online and not spend long hours going to a site and waiting tobe seen."The change may seem procedural, but its impact will be big for those who, without it, have had to spend countless hours waitingin line with their families to get ID cards. Before RAPIDS, service members, retirees and families had to go together to a DefenseManpower Data Center to submit an application form and wait while the ID card is being made, Dixon said."This is big project," she said. "It takes away time from your work, and if you are separated maybe the spouse is out on a ship oron deployment or your child is away at college it makes it a huge problem."Now, the CAC holder can go onto the RAPIDS site, call up the listing of their dependents, and fill out and digitally sign form No.1172-2 for their family members to receive an ID card. That family member then can go alone to the closest DMDC office theyare listed on the website and linked to Google Maps for driving directions -- to pick up thecard, Dixon said.RAPIDS
