    lol, noobs

    I have a legit passport because I travel to countries outside of the EU union. Switzerland, for example, I have been to many times. Granted, they have not actively checked every passenger on the trains I have been on, there are random checks.

    If you are flying into a country, I highly suggest a full passport. Bite the bullet, pay the $90 or whatever it is, and wait a month. I do not fuck around with the thought of being stuck at some border because I wasnt smart enough to plan ahead.

    BTW, I am stationed in Germany, and I travel often.

    I dont think its a requirement, BUT, We send people outta here alot on emergency leave/medical evac/all kindsa crazy stuff.

    They travel commercial almost always and when they go thru paris or dubai, they get caught up in customs long enough for them to miss their flight.
    We try to get everyone to get one, but it doesnt always happen

    :ugh: That's not a "military" passport. That's an official passport. Not everyone in the military stationed overseas has one. In fact, the vast majority don't.

    red ones are usually european ones I thought as ours are blue

    so instead of bickering how about one of you fellow military dudes dig up some proof or something showing what a military passport is

    and please inform me how I live in england without one? How my ex wife lived over here without one

    how ive been to countless countries for the military without one then

    dur

    There are three types of US Passports. Blue (tourist), red (official), and black (diplomatic).

    There is no "military passport". More civilians have official passports than military (a great deal more). Official passports are used when you're on official government business. You wouldn't be able to use it to visit other countries as a tourist.

    You, as a member of the military, do not require an official passport.

    I am not bickering, I just found it odd that in our squadron to go TDY it is mandatory that we have an official passport, while you have shown that it is not needed.

    I understand that it is not actually a military passport. I was referring to the fact that I can use it only when on military status.
