I am proud to announce the new Hurlburt Field Commando Welcome Center opened its doors on Monday, Sept. 15th.  It is a centralized location to welcome all of our new airmen and their families to Team Hurlburt and provides streamlined in-processing across the installation.   

The Welcome Center is a key piece in Hurlburt Field’s new approach to receiving our airmen and will be their first stop when joining our base.  Upon arrival, they will be met by a team of trained airmen and an array of support functions consolidated at the Center to help them through the PCS process.  This includes assistance with travel vouchers, help with updating required paperwork, and scheduling of follow-on appointments.   

In addition to assisting Hurlburt Airmen with in-processing actions, the Welcome Center also provides a personalized right start program that connects airmen and their families with Hurlburt Field and the community.  This initiative is led by unit assigned sponsors that guide airmen through the gaining process and introduce them to the local area, base, and their gaining unit.   

The new Hurlburt Field Commando Welcome Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., no appointments necessary.  Be sure to download the official 1 SOW application for your iPhone or Android device which provides an electronic directory, newcomers guide, and base map of essential places for new personnel.  

If you have any questions please contact the Hurlburt Welcome Center at 850-884-4815.
