Traveling through Canada
If you are driving through Canada, you will be required to have a valid passport as it is the only reliable and universally accepted travel and identification document for the purpose of international travel.
When traveling with a group of vehicles, parents or guardians should arrive at the border in the same vehicle as their children or any minors they are accompanying. If you share custody and the other parent is not traveling with you, or if you are traveling with minors for whom you are not the parent or legal guardian, we recommend you carry a consent letter to provide authorization for you to take them on the trip and enter Canada. Suppoorting identification such as birth certificate or citizenship card may be required also.
A consent letter must include the custodial parents' or legal guardians' full name, address and telephone number. Some travelers chose to have the consent letter notarized, to further support it's authenticity, especially if they are undertaking a significant trip and want to avoid delays.
All vistors arriving from or transitioning through the United States are encouraged to visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Web site for information concerning the U.S. Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative and the requirements to enter or return to the United States. For more information, check the Canadian website.
Pets traveling through Canada must also have a current health certificate (within 30 days) that will need to be shown at border crossings.

Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
