Commando Welcome Center

Contact: 850-884-4815

Hours: Monday - Friday, 0730-1530 (Closed during holidays)

Your First stop when in-processing to Hurlburt Field.

Things to bring:

3x Copies of Orders

Receipts for Travel Voucher

Please coordinate with your Sponsor/INTRO Unit Monitors to ensure your inbound is scheduled for an appointment.

The Command Welcome Center is a family friendly one-stop shop to welcome our
new commandos to Hurlburt Field. Brochures and information about the local
area will be available to assist members with their transition.

Upon arrival, in-bound members will be escorted to the Hurlburt Welcome
Center by their sponsor during their appointment time. They should bring
three copies of their orders and receipts for their travel vouchers in order
to ease the in-processing process.

In-bound members can expect to in-process with our personnel team, complete
their SGLI form, update their vRED, register for TriCare, complete their
travel voucher, and be scheduled for mandatory appointments. All this can
be accomplished via appointment on the same day at the same place so members
can begin their house hunting leave the next day.

Additionally, members will be given an in-processing checklist that will
detail everything they will need to accomplish prior to reporting to their
unit. If you have any questions about the Command Welcome Center, please do
not hesitate to call (850) 884-4815 and we will be happy to assist.

Enjoy #nationaldonutday! But know that budgeting is like calorie counting and you have to budget calories for #donutday. Donut eat your savings away! Simple contributions to your TSP can add up over time. By opting into BRS, the DoD contributes 1% automatically and will match up to 4% of funds, maxing out at a 5% contribution. So take a little of that daily donut money and put it somewhere that it can grow. Double check your TSP contributions on your LES, mypay, www.TSP.gov, or come see one of our certified financial counselors at the A&FRC (884-5441).
