The government likes to keep a tight lip on their activities and only a few individuals are allowed to access their systems. In order to gain access to this system, you will need to submit a formal written request to the defense department. Of course, this does not necessarily mean that you will be granted access the first go around. Many requestors are immediately denied, because they submitted a poorly written request. The only way to be assured of an endorsement for access is with the DD form 2875.
