Look up Real ID for details. This is not something new but has been coming for years in the aftermath of 9/11.
Congress enacted the Act in May 2005, in response to the 9/11
Commission's recommendations.
Under the Act, Federal agencies are prohibited, effective May 11,
2008, from accepting a driver's license or a State-issued personal
identification card for an official purpose unless the issuing State is
meeting the requirements of the Act.
Deadline was extended a couple times previously and now is extended again. . So yes, to enter West Point, one would need an ID that met the standard. I assume that they do not check ID on football game days but really don't know how they handle game day security.

Real ID

This deadline is only for state issued ID's that are not Real ID compliant, the first of these forms of ID accepted by federal authorities. All the other ID's are and have been accepted.

Driver's licenses or other state photo identity cards issued by Department of Motor Vehicles (or equivalent)
U.S. passport
U.S. passport card
DHS trusted traveler cards (Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)
U.S. Department of Defense ID, including IDs issued to dependents
Permanent resident card
Border crossing card
State-issued Enhanced Driver’s License
Federally recognized, tribal-issued photo ID
HSPD-12 PIV card
Foreign government-issued passport
Canadian provincial driver's license or Indian and Northern Affairs Canada card
Transportation worker identification credential
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Employment Authorization Card (I-766)
U.S. Merchant Mariner Credential

I live in CA. My original birth certificate, ret'd military I.D. and everything else I provided was turned down. I seriously doubt the new ID requirement will ever go into effect. But, if it does, I guess I'm grounded.

They have not been checking IDs during game days, starting around an hour or so before the parade (I may be a little off on the exact time). They do randomly choose some vehicles to pull over and inspect.

If you are a grad and do not have a DoD-issued ID card and you want to enter WP on non-game days, go to wpaog.org > Services > Grad Pass for instructions on how to get a pass. There are 2 options, depending on the length/frequency of your visits. Neither appear to require Real ID, though you do have to fill out a form (they apparently do a quick 'security' check of some sort). You can complete the form online in advance, though you must be logged in to wpaog.org to do so.

Armyfan - You won't be grounded. DoD-issued IDs are acceptable, so your retired military ID will work.

You're welcome!

Yes, the dependent ID will work. Here's a link to the Real ID Fact Sheet: https://www.tsa.gov/sites/default/files ... tsheet.pdf

The info on acceptable IDs is on the 2nd page.
