At the ID card office here the guy helping me had to ask someone else how to do it so probably the person you're talking to just doesn't know. I would just try to talk to someone else.

I just called the ID card office. Apparently, I will have to wait to get to Fort Sam in order to get my ID. You must be Active Duty status in order to get one, and since I am considered IRR right now until I go down there, I can't get one.
I was considered IRR when I got my ID. HRC has been putting people into the IRR as a "holding position" so people dont get lost. I had even gotten my ID before my orders.
I would suggest, if you live near an ID office, just go there w/ your two forms of ID. You dont need to only go to ARMY offices, any branch of the military will give you one.
