DOD ID Numbers Required for Legal Assistance 
Due to a recent system change, DOD ID numbers are now required for all legal assistance appointments.  For current military members, this number is located on your CAC.  If dependents wish to receive legal services, they will need their sponsor's DOD ID number to be assisted.
Retirees may retrieve their DOD ID number at (if they do not know it).  Spouses of retirees wishing to receive legal services must also have their sponsor's DOD ID number in order to receive legal assistance. 
Our primary goal and first priority is to ensure active service members and their families are prepared for deployment.  The legal office works with deploying members to ensure their legal readiness.  This includes the preparation of wills, advance medical directives (living will and medical power of attorney), general/special powers of attorney, and assisting in arrangement to help support service members and their families.  For legal resources, issues, and questions, please call our office or refer to the Air Force Legal Assistance website at:
Legal Assistance/Will Appointments
