    I have never heard of any base that doesn't allow civilian gear....especially as a reservist. You're only authorized to wear the ODU's when you're on orders anyway so that's a no to begin with. Civilian gear should be fine. Make sure you're still presentable as a member of the Coast Guard so don't have your pants sagging or have profanity/nudity on your shirt. I would figure that would go without saying but you are definitely representing something much more than yourself now that you're in.

    Most bases I have been on require uniforms for official business for active duty. I don't know their policies for reserve which is why I said to call and ask.

    If you need a whole new CAC card then you need to be in uniform for the picture. Which you wont know until you get there.

    I've gotten my ID card updated a couple of times at Nat'l Guard Armories, I was in civvies. All things considered, I could've probably gone in a clown suit and gotten my ID picture taken.

    Well since the id card policy is to not show a members rank in their picture there should not be an issue about having to be in uniform. At least we have never required it here, but I am sure it varies from location to location.

    They ask us if we want to, just to see our birthday better on the back. Nargil. Any idea what I would do if I need to see a YN but am on Kauai? Do I have to fly to Oahu?

    Bells I really can't speak for another office but I would guess if you need face to face time you would need to go to where they are. If you don't need face time you can always call their office. If it is just a general question you can always send me a PM.

    Down at Sector St Pete, I've updated my card requiring a new picture and was never in uniform.  Oh well, I guess the moral of the story is that there are at least some bases that do require it while some do not.  I'll yield back to what JB said and to call ahead just in case.  Nothing negative can come from double checking...in fact, it might save you on the off chance that their base is one that does require it for security reasons.

    To tag on, you should always call ahead to an ID card office as those systems are notorious for going down or there might be some early libo granted, etc.

    I was down at PSU 312 in December, and I recall seeing something on a bulletin board that said the ID card office on CGI only accepted walk-ins one day a week for a few hours, or something similar to that. Every other time-frame required a call-ahead appointment.

    The other card offices in our area only work on days that don't end in a Y.
