Personal I.D. ... It's Important








written by: Bobijean Cesnik-Neher

The Value of I.D. ....

My concern about personal documents and identity has a valid base. It's hard to say for certain when it began, or why, and when it ended, but events of the 1970's and 1980's made me wonder.  I've always presented myself as who I am, Ms. Bobijean Cesnik-Neher ...  I have no female siblings.   Identity fraud and identity theft hurts ... per an internet story on, 2-28-2012, identity theft and fraud cost 1.52 billion dollars in 2011 .... and that is only the amount which can tracked .... 1.52 billion dollars maybe just the tip of the iceberg.

Though misuse of identification is a serious subject, here's a somewhat humorous look at how terminology can be used in different ways.

A "Green Card" to Immigration Officials is a card issued to people from other countries allowing that person to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis.

At American Trans Air, a "Green Card" referred to an air travel card on which the airline employee could charge air travel when traveling on company business.

I was born in the United States, so I don't need an Immigration "Green Card."
When I worked at the Airline, I did travel on Company Business.
I don't think I ever used my airline "Green Card," my travel plans were always made in advance.
I served in many capacities at American Trans Air,
but I was NEVER a Flight Attendant!
