When I retired in 1998, my original retired ID card did say "indefinite." My active duty ID card also said "indefinite" but that was long before CACs. It must have been about 10 years...

I turn 65 in another eight weeks, so I will have to turn in my old DD-2 for the new CAC. Apparently, they set an expiration date of your 65th birthday on all retiree ID cards to make sure you went...
