    If in the IRR, you do not rate PX/med privileges, but you do rate the pink ID. If you go into the active reserve, or recalled back to active duty, then you rate px/medical privileges. Cobra, go to the nearest resrve unit of the service branch you were in, they are able to get you an ID card. It's PINK.

    Another good website gents, and post a resume! You may be surprised who comes knocking at the job opportunity door:

    www.militaryhire.com

    Sign up is free, and like I said post a resume.

    Another Website

    Brand new here and hopefully not doing this wrong. Pls correct and let me know if I have....

    Manuelc mentioned this site to me as a possible for putting on my website in Links. I created a free website to guide veterans/dependents on researching, organizing and assembling va claims/appeals. It is free with NO hidden agenda.

    It is my way of saying Thank You to those who have offered their very lives to protect me and mine.

    The site is: http://www.howtoassemblevaclaims.com/index.html

    I look forward to exploring your site. It looks very interesting.

    By the way, I am a homemaker/secretary who helped my hubby receive his appropriate disability rating with the va. The introduction on my site is exactly what happened with no exaggerations.

    I hope it helps others.

    I'm not a vet but my dad was. He server in Korea and Nam where he got injured and he was basically forgotten.

    I fully support the following website because The Greatest Casualty is being forgotten.

    During Basic Training when will I hear from my child?

    Trainees may not be contacted during BMT—this is an intense 8.5-week training program. Trainees are required to send their address to their family or significant others their first week of training. You may write letters to your trainee, and in fact, it is encouraged. Basic training is stressful and positive letters from home are great morale boosters. Trainees do not have access to: the Internet, e-mail, or incoming phone calls during the training cycle. Trainees may be contacted in the case of family emergencies such as:

    Death in the immediate family.
    Serious illness in the immediate family.
    Birth announcement (wife of male trainee)

    You should contact your local Red Cross agency office to make contact with a trainee; you will not be able to contact the trainee directly. American Red Cross American Red Cross | Disaster Relief, CPR Certification, Donate Blood.

    To contact the BMT Reception Center, please phone: 210-671-3024.

    For more information on this subject, you can chat with one of our online advisers or click here to contact us and get in touch with your local recruiter.

    How do I locate someone in the Air Force?

    The AF World Wide Locator handles official and unofficial requests to locate Air Force Personnel. Official requests are defined as requests received from any government agency and the Department of Defense (DoD). All other requests are considered unofficial in nature.

    The AF World Wide Locator only has location information on individuals who are currently receiving compensation from the USAF (Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Retired, and Civil Service Personnel). If the individual has separated from the AF, no information is available.

    LOCATION/MAILING ADDRESS:
    HQ AFPC/DPDXIDL
    550 C St West Ste 50
    Randolph AFB, TX 78150-4752

    CUSTOMER SERVICE HOURS:
    Monday-Friday (except Federal Holidays)
    7:30 am–4:30 pm (Central Standard Time)

    COMMERCIAL: (210) 565-2660
    MILITARY TO MILITARY: (DSN) 665-2660

    REQUIRED INFORMATION:
    The following information is required to make a positive identification:

    Full name to include a middle initial, rank (officer/enlisted/GS)
    Social Security Number or Air Force serial number
    Date of birth or an Air Force duty history including the place, month and year of assignments after June 1970

    No assignment information is available prior to June 1970.

    OFFICIAL REQUEST:
    DoD official requests may be handled over the phone, providing the requester gives their full name, rank, SSN, organization and purpose of the request. Failure to provide requested information will result in non-disclosure of requested information.

    Federal or State Government agency requests for information must be in pursuant to the Privacy Act as stated in the United States Code 552(a)(7). The request must be in writing on official letterhead and signed by a Section Chief or higher.

    Law enforcement agency requests must be in writing on the appropriate letterhead.

    UNOFFICIAL REQUESTS:
    All unofficial requests must be in writing and fees may not be applicable.

    Your request should state who you are looking for, your name, address and telephone number. Put this information in an unsealed envelope with a return address, proper postage affixed and the individual's name in the addressee portion of the envelope. Place this envelope in a larger envelope with your check or money order for $3.50 made payable to DAO-DE RAFB and mail to the Locator address given above. Your request constitutes consent to release of this information to the member.

    FEES:
    A fee of $3.50, per individual request, is required from all personnel or businesses requesting addresses on military personnel. Requests must be in writing.

    The World Wide Locator also provides a "Statement or Verification of Service". This applies to Active Duty Air Force personnel only. A fee of $5.20, per individual written request, is required.

    Checks or money orders must be made payable to DAO-DE RAFB.

    There is no fee for requesters that are either on active duty, serving in the
    guard or reserve, or individuals that are retired.
