After 9/11, security at Aerospace facilities and Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB) has increased to address the safety and protection of all Aerospace and Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) personnel. Part of this effort includes implementing facility access changes for Aerospace retirees. The following changes took effect January 1, 2003.
Retiree ID cards will no longer be issued. Previously issued cards will be recognized as a valid photo ID only.
Retiree parking decals will no longer be issued. Retirees will be directed to a visitor center for further processing as needed (e.g., access to buildings, credit union, airport shuttle/travel parking). This does not apply to retiree casuals.
Retirees are not losing access privileges to Aerospace; this is simply a change in access procedures.
