I bought a new car and went to the Fort for a sticker. They told me that the Army no longer issues stickers. I understand that stickers are redundant because you have to show your ID to get on base but.

Is this Army Wide?
What about the Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard?

I was told DoD wide...

Kirtland AFB does not use stickers. ID Card which is rapidly scanned in (So I am told) once it is in the database...

AF approves elimination of vehicle decals for base entry

by Senior Airman Stephen Cadette
30th Space Wing Public Affairs

7/26/2007 - VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Beginning Aug. 1, those with valid military identification cards will no longer need to have decals on their vehicles to get on base.

Drivers will continue to provide a valid Department of Defense identification card to be scanned at the gate before entry. The scanner system, implemented in November 2006, checks a variety of ID cards, pulling information from 140 data bases to obtain information about the person trying to enter the base.

The Air Force gave installations the option to do away with the Department of Defense Vehicle Registration Decal, DD Form 2220 for the sake of security, said Larry Prichard, 30th Security Forces Squadron Pass and Registration office.

While it's not mandatory for drivers to remove the decals, basic anti-terrorism force protection training teaches that terrorists historically look for military targets. An enemy could tell a car belongs to a servicemember by the decal.

"A decal could make you a target," said Maj. Antonius Spangler, 30th SFS deputy commander. "If you don't need the decal, you would be safer to scrape it off."

Besides ATFP, another advantage will be a decrease in traffic at the visitor control center.

"This will definitely be more convenient," Mr. Prichard said. "Now there won't be any stopping at the VCC, and people with authorized access can come on base easier."

The Air Force is the only military branch to do away with the decals. Those who need the DD Form 2220 for access to another service's base, like camps Pendleton or Roberts, can leave their decal on their car. They can also renew or acquire new decals through pass and registration.
I could not find a DoD Directive on the issue of not using DD Form 2220, but this covers the issuance:

http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text....3.1.3&idno=32

e-CFR Data is current as of January 20, 2012
Title 32: National Defense
PART 634—MOTOR VEHICLE TRAFFIC SUPERVISION
Subpart C—Motor Vehicle Registration
634.21 Department of Defense Form 2220.

There are no more decals on Fort Bragg either. They stopped giving those about 1.5 years ago even though I still have mine. I think as long as you have a DOD ID you are good.

No more stickers on Air Force installations. Makes sense since there is and probably always will be a 100% ID check of all drivers. I miss the days of being waved on with only a sticker in the window, but those days are over and it makes sense from a security issue.
