Unfortunately no. This is becoming a problem with the part time Service, in my opinion. Fewer Soldiers in this current generation actually use personal computers. While CAC readers exist for some tablets/notebooks, they were really expensive last time I checked (Like over $200).

I find it to be a monthly struggle with my unit, especially as a senior leader and especially as we get closer to training events. I am having to bring my personal laptop to work to monitor important things put out on the dot mils. Going to a reserve center or armory is not necessarily convenient; in less populated areas such centers tend to be farther away.

OK..Im off my soapbox

I've bought 2 CAC readers. One was $5 and the other $20. MilitarCAC.com helps with that.

SGT (Join to see) . That was what I was referring to when I was mentioning the CAC readers. I had looked into one about 5 years ago for my tablet and it was $350 and not all that reliable with the OS that was installed on the tablet. Perhaps things have caught up a bit with technology, but I have not really looked into it either. (my tablet had a bad day at a field exercise and since then, I have not replaced it, and don't have enough interest to look into this. I may later because I am curious)

There has to be a way. Recruiters and others access it from their phones or other such devices, don't they?
