    I wasn't issued an ID either...I'm curious as to how you got one as well lol

    Good to hear that you recieved a bootcamp date! I've read on this forum that fall is a pretty nice time to be at Cape May. You'll be able to make the most of your summer!

    Yeah seriously that's mad weird though. The certificate is just the Oath of enlistment and you sign the bottom and then like a major or someone pretty high up who swears you in signs the bottom as well.

    I got neither the certificate or anything stating I can go ahead and get a military ID. I didn't think we'd get our military ID's until after basic...

    I'm a little confused by this. I may come off as harsh here, but how are you able to get the benefits of an enlisted member of the military when you yourself are not enlisted yet? You are not a member of the armed forces until the day you ship off for basic.

    That's kind of wierd, but I have a friend who just shipped off for Army basic and she was DEP'd in. She had a little ID card that allowed her on to Camp Mabry here in Austin so she could use the gym and workout facilities with her other local DEP'ers.

    She never explained it in full to me, but it sounded odd to me.

    When my boyfriend DEP'd into the Navy, he got a DEP ID which worked like a military ID in terms of military discounts (there are no local military facilities, but it worked for those too).

    I can understand if the other services do it. I'm trying to understand how someone who is DEP'd in for the Coast Guard can do it. This is far from common practice.

    Because my friend was joining the Marines and I was about to with him, and I remember he was deped in and they gave him this almost like a get out of jail free card he used to show cops when he would get pulled over. I figured that they gave it to him so that he wouldn't get in trouble and they could ship him off, plus so the recruiters would get paid. But that makes a lot of sense, I thought you meant like a real military ID which would be odd because you aren't really enlisted until you swear in right before you leave, like you can still turn back now, so can I until this monday when they swear me in the second time and ship me off.

    Get pulled over & get out of jail free... I have never heard of such a thing. And there are cops out there, you throw something out like that, if they are retired military, you just might get the exact opposite reaction. You should know better and live to the Corps Values and be in MORE trouble then if you just took your ticket like a man!

    And so the recruiters get paid?!?!?!?! Funny, I think Chukles & Cooch get paid every 1st & 15th like every other Coastie... bring in 1 or bring in 100, the paycheck for Chief is deposited.

    I think you may be understanding that neat little card your friend got in a completely incorrect light!

    "I figured that they gave it to him so that he wouldn't get in trouble and they could ship him off, plus so the recruiters would get paid."

    This is the most insane thing I've seen all day.
    And it's been a long day.

    I would keep that card in my pocket if I was you.

    I meant that like that the other recruiters get paid by how many people they get to join, I don't my recruiter told me he doesn't get paid that way and it's just another reason he wouldn't lie to anybody because it doesn't matter to him. Also he was supposed to give the card to the cops he was just supposed to make it so the cop saw it, it worked like 11 times. It wasn't an ID card it was like a card saying he deped in with a signature.

    You answered your own question.... Because it's not something that the Coast Guard does.  The base can choose to do what they want.  The Coast Guard doesn't issue the ID to you, the DOD base does.

    Just wanted to add - Pleeeeease don't try and get out of a ticket by flashing an ID or DEP contract. In many cases, it is almost the same as begging for a larger ticket.

    I concur completely with what Cooch said but, in some locales a young man driving around with an out-of-state license plate can attract the attention of local law enforcement. In that case, and in that case alone, presenting a military ID along with a valid drivers license and registration, can go a long way toward explaining why you are in that jurisdiction.

    having an out of state license does not attract that much attention.. i drove my car across country twice and now work in va and live in nc... this is a huge military area so they figure if you have an out of state plate then your probably military. second dont flash your id to get yourself out of trouble.. trust me it really doesnt work. just be respectful and that is what can normally get you out of trouble. plus i dont think pulling out your military id all the time is a good idea.. keep in mind your whole life is on that card.. its the same as carrying around your social security card. just a little food for thought.

    "...in some locales..." Some Coast Guard stations are in small towns. My son was pulled over three times in the first two weeks at his new station but as soon as they found out he was at the Coast Guard station they sent him on his way. After a while they got used to seeing him around and stopped pulling him over.

    Britt, of course that doesn't work in Virginia!!! They HATE military in general lol there are sooo many military members in the area they target us. I got a ticket while in A-school luckily I had a NY driver's license in which the points from the ticket didn't get put on my license. I got pulled over two other times, one in NY the guy let me go when I showed him ID and in Fayetteville,NC 4 cars blocked me in a parking lot and I heard the cop say "Oh he's in the Coast Guard", "Have a good night sir". So I guess it really depends on the mood of the cop lol.

    Please! You're hair cut will give you away, and lots of cops are prior military. Would you want a ticket to someone on their way home from a long deployment? I sure as hell wouldn't.
