MilConect website instruction
The following actions can be accomplished online on the MilConnect website: Update DEERS, get proof of TRICARE coverage, view or change TRICARE enrollment, sign up for e-correspondence about changes to TRICARE coverage, view personnel information (sponsors only), transfer GI Bill benefits to Family members (sponsors only) and view Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance information.
If not already registered on the MilConnect website, you can do so at www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/.

The ID Card Office Online is a self-service application found within MilConnect  for Common Access Card holders designed to complete tasks traditionally done in-person at the ID card office. It can be accessed by either a CAC or DS logon.

The ID Card Office Online was created to save time for both a sponsor and their Family members. A sponsor can authorize an ID card replacement, update their Family member’s contact information, and request that a Family member be added to their DEERS record on line from any CAC enabled computer. This will lessen the time the sponsor and Family members spend at the ID Card office or RAPIDS site and also enable Family members to receive a replacement ID card when their sponsor is unable to accompany them.

However, Family members must verify their enrollment in person at an ID card office within 90 days of their sponsor’s request to add them to their DEERS record and Family member IDs must be issued within 90 days of their sponsor’s request. 

The ID Card Office Online also enables a sponsor to print a DD Form 1172-2, Application for Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment by following the steps below: Sign in to MilConnect with CAC, select “More Goals,” select “View ID Card Information” and under Sponsor and Dependent ID Card Management, select “Update ID.”

Cards. Under sponsor login, follow these steps: Under CAC Maintenance, select “Print Family List;” under Select Family Members, select all “Family members;” select “proceed;” select “I agree;” select “proceed;” select “display form and print.”

Stone Mill Spring status
Stone mill spring is temporarily closed due to flood damage recently sustained. Fort Leonard Wood and the Mark Twain National Forest are both working diligently to repair the damage as soon as possible.

Currently there is no estimate as to when the repairs will be completed and when the spring will be open again. Trout stockings from the Missouri Department of Conservation are also currently canceled until further notice, as their hatcheries have sustained damage as well. Further announcements will be made as new information becomes available.
