Photo identification is required to be worn at all times and be with you when you are entering and leaving the facility.
It is during this span of time that you must schedule an appointment with the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) office located in Building 217 at the Martinsburg VA Medical Center (VAMC) campus, 304-263-0811 ext. 2066 or ext. 2067 to get your fingerprints. Directions from main building to PIV office:
Fingerprints can be taken at any Department of Veterans Affairs VAMC as long as you call to schedule an appointment. Locations and phone numbers can be found at locations. It is very important to tell them that the fingerprint results need to be sent to the Martinsburg VAMC and provide them with these two numbers:
- SOI VAB9
- SON 1316
If you fail to provide them with these two designating numbers the results will not be sent to the Martinsburg VAMC. This will result in a delay or cancellation of your rotation/training.
