Students and family member going on the international trip next year here is a great opportunity to get your passport. The Muskegon downtown US Post Office is holding a Passport Fair Saturday Aug 29, 2015 from 10am-3pm. No Appointment needed. The USPS can even take your pictures but it much cheaper if you take the pics and bring them with you.
The USPS can help you do everything you need to get your passport but it is highly recommended to have your pictures with you and have your forms completed before getting to the USPS.
For forms, required documents, required guardians, directions, etc. visit the US Department of State website: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports.html
