Effective May 16, agent privilege cards will no longer be processed at Personnel Support Detachment (PSD) Pearl Harbor, building 4827, the Moanalua Navy Services Center.
Agent cards will now be issued at the Vickers Pass and ID (PID) office located on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) Building 1113 on Vickers Ave.
The purpose of agent cards is that authorized patrons of military facilities (NEX/commissary/pharmacy) may request the designation of an individual to make purchases on their behalf or accompany them when shopping in certain situations. These are specific situations such as: the authorized patron is assigned overseas, deployed, or is otherwise unable to shop for their dependent child; the authorized patron is unable to shop due to disability; the authorized patron is unable to shop due to sickness; or the child is in the household of a parent, guardian or individual with an “in loco parentis” special power of attorney, who is a non-authorized patron.
Lt. Cmdr. Kyle Jayne Vernon, officer in charge, Personnel Support Detachment Pearl Harbor, said, “Application processing time is three to five duty days.”
Vernon explained that the change to agent card processing is a result of joint basing and combining functions between the two services.
Copies of the following documentation are needed to apply for an agent card:
*For dependent child or children, a divorce decree or notarized letter from the sponsor.
*If the sponsor is disabled, an official letter from a physician that provides diagnosis.
*Photocopy of agent and sponsor ID cards (front and back).
*One copy of military orders (if applicable).
The agent must have a valid driver’s license, current vehicle safety inspection, and certificate of automobile insurance when picking up the pass. Guests operating a vehicle not registered in their name must provide a notarized letter authorizing them to operate the vehicle on military installations.
Only one agent card is allowed per sponsor and only requests for Air Force and Navy-affiliated personnel will be accepted.
An application form can be obtained in person or by email by calling the PID office.
Directions from JBPHH O’Malley Gate (previously the main gate for Hickam AFB) are as follows: Proceed straight on O’Malley Boulevard. As you pass the flight line and the PACAF building, you will enter a traffic circle with the installation flag. Vickers Avenue will be the first exit to the right. Building 1113 is the first building on the left. Park across the street behind the bus stop.
PID office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 449-9394/6563.
