  1. I left the military in 2015, I received one about 4weeks after I left, dont be fooled the conservatives had done this before they left government.

  2. Are the the Reserve members from the 1980’ss that took basic and trade trained at the unit level going to be eligible for this? I am sure there are a lot of Reserve force that , while not qualifying for benefits would appreciate the recognition of service and be able to take advantage of discounts available for vetrans.

  3. If it is discounts you want apply for the CFOne card through CANEX. The NDI card is more for official recongniztion of service.

  4. I am wondering how you all are rolling this out as a new thing? I released in 2015 and got my ndi75 within a year or less. How does one who served but didn’t get one apply to get one?

  5. As a former reservist, the status of my release (1990 ?) is not clear. I had served since 1973.
    My question simply is : who would/ could I speak with to get some clarification ?
    I served very proudly and would love to get some/ any recognition for my time ‘in’.

    Thank you in advance.

  6. I was released in 2008 after 26 years of service and was issued a “record of service card” (NDI 75). It has the same number as the one pictured above, but on the back it says “THIS IS NOT AN IDENTIFICATION CARD” (in bold letters), is this “new card any different or does it say the same thing on the back? The link leads me to believe it is the same card I already have and “THIS IS NOT AN IDENTIFICATION CARD”. This is not what veterans groups have been asking for.

  7. I’ve been hearing how this card can be used for photo id, but the old NDI 75 cannot. I went to the DND website, the faq says I don’t need to get a new one. So my question is this, if the new card opens up more for veterans and can be used as identification, but the old one doesn’t, why don’t I need a new card? My card does say “Record of Service Identification Card”, but other individuals have said there’s cards out there that say “Not an Identification Card” on the back. I haven’t looked at someone else’s card other than checking identification at the gate as a commissionaire years ago. The only thing that I can say is that I have seen some people that had cards that weren’t manufactured in the same way. Because their cards were issued a long, long time ago.
