This information has not been updated since since 392011. You are not open on Thursdays because you were closed for training today when I was there. As stated above this is less than satisfactory customer service.

Your web page does not include the area code with your phone no. I was not able to speak to a person who could answer my questions. Your recorded instructions say do not leave a VM and then there is a contradictory msg that says leave a msg after the beep. Which is it

Nobody answers the phone and the recorded message states they will respond in 5 days. All I want is to make an appointment for a dependent ID card. I looked at the Scott AFB Web Page and couldn't find a link. You shouldn't have to wait a week for somenone to respond when all you want is an appointment. This is less than satisfactory customer service.
