So this morning I drove from 98010-land to PSNS Bremerton to go on a service call. My PSNS ID has expired, so I needed to get a new one before being allowed into the shipyard.

Got my access request letter e-mailed to my point of contact and a copy of my I-9 form from my employer in-hand. When I arrived at the pass & ID office, I took my number and started watching the don't speed, don't fuck up, don't drink the hazmat, don't get run over by a crane / straddle truck, don't get nuked video. When they called my number, I surrendered my expired PSNS ID, and showed my WA DL and MIL ID. I was asked for my I-9 and the supporting documents listed on it. I went from to to in 0.33 picoseconds. Since I listed my birth certificate on my I-9 in 2002, I needed to have it.

Well, I just found my birth certificate and now it's back to the beautiful city of Bremerton for a lovely drive to watch that video. At least I'll be listening to Bubba The Love Sponge on the way there and back.

This also allows me the opportunity to do that service call tomorrow, vice today. Yippee.

It's these little subtle reminders I occasionally get that remind me why I separated from the Navy after a mere six years.

Back to your regularly scheduled bullshit.

Well, I'm back with a new PSNS ID.
I get to go back tomorrow and actually troubleshoot the equipment.

Oh yeah, the I-9 requirement is new for Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

I didn't need it in 2003, 2004 or 2005.

Edited.

Wow, they did not make an exception for a stand-up guy from WAHTF? You should have told them you're a member of ARFCOM You were in the Navy, you know the rules, you did not have all the required documents - quit whining.

In your original post you said: since I listed my birth certificate on my I-9 in 2002, I needed to have it.
and your last post: Oh yeah, the I-9 requirement is new. I didn't need it in 2003, 2004 or 2005.

How can the requirement be new if you had to do an I-9 in 2002?

Make up your mind or get your story straight.

I shall clarify:

My Mon-Fri 8-5 employer had me fill out an I-9 as part of the hiring process. My Mon-Fri 8-5 employer has a service agreement in place for a certain piece of equipment onboard PSNS. When I got a PSNS ID in 2003, 2004 & 2005, no I-9 required. My I-9 is on file with corporate in California.

A certain airplane manufacturer had me fill out something like an I-9 in 2003--once. When renew that badge every year, they just swap my old one for a new one. Most other customers electronically renew badges. I understand why NAVSEA does not do that.

Oh, and I was told to bring me, my picture ID, my old PSNS ID and a copy of my I-9. The birth certificate was a bonus surprise, sprung upon me after taking a trip across Galloping Gertie.

I sure hope you are getting paid for the travel! Next time they will probably think of something new.

Yup, it's different if you need unescorted access to the Controlled Industrial Areas.
