Military Personnel Section protect ID card holders

SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany – Airman Yolanda Hoffman, 52nd Force Support Squadron personnel apprentice, helps Airman 1st Class Samantha Green, 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron, at the military personnel section here Oct. 26. The Department of Defense recently began removing social security numbers from Common Access Cards to protect the personal identity information of service members and their families. This initiative has three phases, which began with the removal of family member and all active-duty social security numbers, and social security numbers embedded in bar codes will be removed beginning in 2012. ID cards won’t be replaced unless the current card is expired or damaged. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Christopher Toon)
