Scott Air Force Base Cracks Down on Acceptable Forms of ID

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A driver’s license or ID card from Missouri won’t be enough to get onto Scott Air Force Base and Fort Leonard Wood as of Sept. 15.

Both military installations have issued statements and posted information on their websites for states that are so-called “non-compliant” with the Real ID Act.

Scott Air Force Base officials say if you don’t have a passport or another form of federally recognized photo ID, you will have to be physically escorted by a sponsor while on the base.

On Fort Leonard Wood’s website, it lists other acceptable alternate forms of identification to present with your driver’s license. The list does include a social security card.

    Our government is so backa$$wards. A photo Driver’s License is no good, but a Social Security card with no photos or identifiers IS good? What a joke!
