NATIONAL GUARD REQUIRING PHOTO IDENTIFICATION

Sept. 25, 2001 – Because of heightened security measures now in effect, anyone doing business with the V.I. National Guard will need to present photo identification.
In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the mainland, all U.S. military facilities are requiring I.D. checks of anyone seeking access to the premises, a release from the V.I.N.G. stated. This applies to all individuals and agency representatives providing services, as well as to dependents of National Guard personnel and retirees wishing to enter the facilities, it said.
The release noted that Post Exchange (PX) operations are continuing as usual.
For more information, call the V.I.N.G. headquarters at 712-7715, or Staff Sgt. Karen Williams in the public affairs office at 712-7750.
