National Guard members, as well as DoD and Coast Guard civilians.

TSA Pre✓® allows participants to keep their shoes, belt and light jacket on and leave laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquids in their carry-on bags when going through airport security.

To participate:

  1. Locate your DoD ID number (10-digit number found on the back of your Common Access Card). If you do not have a DoD ID number listed on your CAC, you can locate it by logging into MilConnect and clicking on the “My Profile” tab.
  2. Civilians must opt-in to the program by logging into the MilConnect, click on the “My Profile” tab and then click on the “CIV” tab. In the Personnel Status information box, click on the “TSA Pre✓® Program” checkbox, complete other required information and scroll to the bottom of the page and click “submit”.
  3. Enter your DoD ID number into the “Known Traveler Number” field when booking leisure flight reservations or when updating your Defense Travel System profile for official travel. To ensure your future airline reservations automatically include your DoD ID number, save it in your profile.
