My dd's friend mentioned to her that she may be able to take a friend to France this summer. She is going there with her father who is in the military. I'm just not so keen on the idea, but I won't say no right off the bat. It would be the experience of a lifetime for one of my children to go to France!

I was just trying to look up what US military bases are located in France, but cannot find any. I know next to nothing about the military though. ARE there military bases left in France?

No. But that doesn't mean much of anything where the military is involved. Military members do a lot of work in places with no bases.

Also keep in mind there are bases in Germany that are like 4 hours away from Paris. AT least there were...pretty sure Landstuhl is still there, although I read it's closing (that was the largest DoD hospital once upon a time).

The heck you say.

I head at summer camp every single year about that place in France where the naked ladies dance, and the renowned hole in the wall where you can see it all..In fact, they say that the way they shake, it would likk a rattlesnake..

Google Answers has this:


You have Ramstein and Spangdahelm Air Bases which are just a very short train/car trip away, but no bases actually in France.

Both parents must apply IN PERSON with the child for a US passport for a minor under the age of 16.

Actually, you just need the waiver/permission form signed by the other parent. That's what we had to do to get DD's passport.

My post office told me that both parents MUST be present when turning in paperwork.

The State Department says both parents must present identification at the time of application, but consent can be achieved with the above. The State Department is really good about answering questions of this nature, if OP wants to contact them to ask, since the two requirements are contradictory.

STEP 5: Present Identification of Parent(s)/Guardian(s)

When applying for a minor under age 16, both parent(s)/guardian(s) must present acceptable identification at the time of application.
