  1. I have noticed inconsistency at the visitors gate when allowing or barring parents/families from entering. If they have a valid state issued ID that would allow for a background check, the website states 2 forms of id is all that is required. several parents have presented both federal id and state id yet were turned away. What is the policy and if there is one then why is there such disconnect there? It is very frustrating to all involved, MPES, parents and recruiting station 2+ hours out.
