Hi. Happy Holidays everyone. My 18-year-old DS is a freshman on a 4-yr AROTC scholarship. I am retired military and he is my dependent and enrolled in DEERS for Tricare Prime insurance. I am trying to get clarification if he were to get a Reserve, cadet ID card (which I know as a contracted cadet he is eligible for), would that bump him out of the DEERS system? I.e., once the 2nd, Reserve ID is activated, would the 'system' render his dependent ID void? Obviously, I do not want to have him drop out of DEERS/Tricare, nor do I want the hassle of trying to retroactively reinstate him because the system isn't set up for him to have the 2 cards at the same time. Seems to me I read somewhere that cadets who are dependents should NOT go and get a Reserve ID. Any info would be appreciated as he is itching to get his own military ID. I know there must be scores of posters on this forum who also have children in this double category. Thank you.
