Yep I might just go and get my passport when I take home time in August.

What scares me about the process is you have to send in your birth certificate also. They may not seem like a big deal to most but I was born on an American Military base in Bermenhaven Germany or what used to be called West Germany.

If the state department looses my birth certificate I would have to go through hell to get another one if I could even get another one. It's a pretty scary thought.

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I was born on a military base near Stuttgart, Germany.

I got my passport in 2006 and it was a LOT of work on my end. Trust me; you don't just need a birth cert., you need year book photos, drivers license copies, and written affidavits from friends and family, if you want it to go fast and smooth.

Ask me anything. I am up for a bit.

Thanks. I saved that as a book mark for future reference. Least I know now that it's possible to get another birth certificate if I have to.

I think I would go ahead and get another copy and lock it away now, so you're not stuck waiting and stressing when the worst happens (you need it and your original gets lost/destroyed).

I was thinking the same thing.

I know what you mean. It took me forever to get an original copy of my birth certificate.
