New Vehicle Access Process

Due to heightened security measures within the DOD/DON, the procedure for obtaining/renewing vehicle passes for access to the United States Naval Academy has changed. For those Chapel congregants who attend worship services on a recurrent basis via personal vehicle, a new Visitor Access Form is required. The form asks for personal information that was not required on previous forms such as your social-security number and date of birth. Disclosure of this information is voluntary; however, failure to provide the information will result in denial of vehicle pass by Base Access and Security. The new forms will be available at the Chapel Information Desk each Sunday before and after services from Sunday 13OCT-Sunday 03NOV. All forms are to be returned in a sealed envelope to the volunteers at the Chapel Information Desk or mailed to the USNA Chaplain Center. Whether returned to the Information Desk or mailed to the Chaplain Center, address the envelope to the USNA Chaplain Center, Attn. Mr. Johnny Thomas, 101 Cooper Rd. Annapolis, MD 21402. Vehicle passes will be distributed to congregants as processed. Completed forms must be returned to Chaplain Center no later than 03NOV. You can also access the form electronically via the USNA Chaplain website at:
