See Flyer below. 1 April 2014- TRICARE Service Center Walk-In Service Ending Walk-in service is ending at TRICARE Service Centers in the U.S. by April 1, 2014. TRICARE Service Centers are customer service outlets that are operated by our regional contractors. They are usually located in military hospitals and clinics. Because our overseas areas are unique, walk-in service at TRICARE Service Centers in all overseas areas will continue. To get your questions answered in the U.S., you'll no longer walk-in during limited hours. Instead: Go online, anytime—learn about your online customer service options Call toll-free (Kansas) 1-877-988-9378 Try our mobile apps View News Article: "TRICARE Ends Walk-in Admin Services at 189 Facilities" This change does not affect any TRICARE benefits or health care services. Why the Change? Since the first TRICARE Service Center opened in the mid 1990’s, we’ve seen a shift in how you get information. With today’s technology, anything you can do at a TRICARE Service Center can be done online or over the phone. Our goal is to improve the services that you prefer to use. This change in walk-in service will save an estimated $250 million over the next five years, letting us invest in the services you want instead of those you don't use. To visit a TRICARE Service Center in the U.S. through March 31, 2014, select your region to find one near you: North Region South Region West Region America’s First– DEVILS! DUTY FIRST!

  29. 29. 1ST ABCT, 1ID An old mail article I like to put out each winter! Prepare your car with an onion? Say what? Snowy weather will be coming our way! Here are a few ways you can prepare your car (and yourself) for snow, ice and cold: -Car stuck in the snow? First, try to rock your car back and forth. If this doesn’t work, you need to look for traction for the back wheels. Car mats will do, or branches, dirt and sand from outside. If you have tried everything else, let some air out of both the back tires to provide better traction. Drive out slowly, and then stay slow until you reach the first gas station that has an air pump. If you are planning to drive in the snow, keep a rubber bathmat cut in half in your trunk, or roof shingles – either of these can help you to get your car out of the snow. -Lock Iced Over? If your locks are frozen, heat your key with a lighter before putting it in the lock. If you have a small straw, blow hot air into the lock. WD-40, alcohol and antifreeze will help to remove ice from your lock as well. -If the weather calls for snow, put cardboard over your windshield to keep it clean of snow and ice. Rubber mats or car mats work as well. If you have ice on your windshield, put salt or rubbing alcohol on it to melt the ice. To prevent ice from sticking on to your windshield, wipe a cut onion on the glass – it works wonders! America’s First– DEVILS! DUTY FIRST!
