Oakley has government contracts, so that's how they get around this law. Plus they only require you to photocopy the front portion that has your rank and picture, not the back which has your Social and date of birth.I personally know a lot of people who have ordered from that site and saved a good bit of money, but one thing that is required for you to order from them is a photocopy of your military ID card. I didn't know this until relatively recently, but it's illegal to make photocopies of it for uses outside of the government. I don't think anyone really cares/checks, but it's just a little FYI.
This is not even close to correct. I never had to provide my SSN or date of birth.Any US servicemember can logon to the AAFES website. It requires your name, date of birth and SSN; it verifies the data against the DOD database and then lets you in. From there any US servicemember can link out to purchase any uniform item, the furniture they sell on-base, electronics, footwear, all of those things.
