That following March 2020, amid the coronavirus outbreak, the Space Force Academy announced that the inaugural class would graduate early. Therefore, the graduates needed their new CACs sooner than anticipated. Dorothy Clark and the GCE Credentialing and Quality Assurance team played integral roles in the design and software changes. They processed the first batch of CACs from the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) Central Issuance Facility (CIF) in Seaside, CA in April 2020. The GCE team in Lorton, VA, mailed the corresponding CAC Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) so that the officers could activate their new CACs. The team expedited the order with precision and were proud to be part of such a historical moment.
