DD Form 1172-2, Application for Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment is a form issued by the Department of Defense (DoD) and used for applying for a variety of Army identification cards, enrolling an individual into the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) database or when updating an existing DEERS record.
The DD 1172-2 is often incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 1172 or DA Form 1172. The application - sometimes called the DD 1172 DEERS Form - is used to request a DD Form 2, a DD Form 1173, a DD Form 1173-1, a DD Form 2764, a DD Form 2765, and a Common Access Card (CAC) for eligible individuals.
The DD Form 1172-2 March 2017 version is up-to-date and in use today: all previous editions are obsolete and should not be used. A fillable version of the application can be acquired through the chain of command, downloaded from the DoD documentation website or down below.
