I asked some Lt's the question if you noticed you lost your wallet what would you have prefer to have been in side of it, your Military id card or $3000? Without any hesitation they all said military id card simply because they could just write up a counseling and just get a new one as oppose to having to wait for 2 or 3 paychecks to build that money back. Right answer or wrong answer? Keep in mind the rapid rise of  (TERRORIST).

I see you concern SFC Butler, and I understand the question.
It is a shame of the lack of thought some people put into the severity of their
CAC card, but with the whole terrorist concern, like what SGT O'Neill said it
is too easy to create a fake, and if they are trying to make their way on post.
They don't even need a CAC in most places. They only need a valid Driver’s license.
I have, and have had civilian friends (former military) come right on to the
post I am currently on and not said a word to the guard. Just shown them a
picture ID not military ID and drive right on. Also with other posts, we are
pretty much falling on our own swards if you ask me. When it comes to accessing
military installations, it gets worse when it comes to access but I don't want
to put that out on here. But as you said the CAC is an important piece of
security that people don't take enough care or thought of.

wow that is ridiculous, well I just don't want to have any regrets as to say it was my id card that someone used to commit such negligence.

Could you tolerate losing your ID card or your credit card, which would make you jump through hopes to get it back or start making calls to bring awareness to this matter?
