 Answer:

Military passports, also known as no-fee passport books, are issued to members of the military, government officials traveling to represent the United States, dependents of those traveling abroad for the government who are accompanying them, those who have special permission to travel abroad to honor a deceased family member of the U.S. Armed Forces, and a few other select situations when the government issues an exemption from the typical passport fee. These books are typically sent to or picked up by the sponsoring organization rather than the individual.

A military passport and other no-fee passport books are only designed for use when the person is traveling in their official capacity. That means members of the military can only use them when they are traveling abroad as a member of the Armed Forces and are in discharge of their official duties. When those who have a no-fee passport want to travel abroad for personal reasons, they are required to use a regular passport book or card, which will require payment of the standard fees.

For this reason, members of the military and other individuals who have permission to obtain a no-fee passport are permitted to have both a valid regular passport book and a valid no-fee passport book at the same time.

So to answer your question Greg No you will need to obtain a regular passport more information could be found here for new passport.
