Pentagon soldiers can catch a ride on the Myer Flyer that has routine stops at the Pentagon Transit Center, L9 and Officers' Club at Fort Myer. The last departure of the Myer Flyer from the Pentagon to arrive promptly for in-processing is at 7:26 a.m. Soldiers assigned to US Army Garrison or The Old Guard will also be required to attend the start right in-processing briefing, which is held every Thursday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. in building 230.
Soldiers need to have the documents listed below in their possession for in-processing:
All incoming personnel assigned to the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment, "The Old Guard," will report to the regimental headquarters located at 201 Jackson Avenue, building 242 (703-696-3003/3004/3005). The staff duty, non-commissioned officer will take your leave form, confirm your unit of assignment, and assist you with your immediate lodging needs.
All personnel assigned to Headquarters U.S. Army Garrison should coordinate their arrival with the Battalion S-1 prior to arrival. The S-1 can be contacted by calling 703-696-8174/8875 or DSN 312-426-8875/8174 during duty hours. The Battalion headquarters office is located at 239 Sheridan Avenue, building 417. All pentagon soldiers are required to report to their S1 agencies prior to reporting to building 230. If personnel arrive after duty hours and have not coordinated with the unit, they should report to the directorate of emergency services building located at 108 Sheridan Avenue, building 415.
It is important to note that Joint Base Myer - Henderson Hall has a very limited number of temporary rooms available, especially on the weekends. Incoming personnel are encouraged to coordinate with their gaining unit prior to arriving. Temporary rooms may be available at Fort Belvoir which is approximately 30 minutes away.
Temporary Lodging Reservations
The temporary lodging facility on Fort Myer is privatized and the room rate is determined based on the type of room and the time of year. If rooms are not available on post, there are a number of temporary lodging facilities as well as local hotels in the national capital region. You will want to make a reservation as early as possible, especially during the summer months. Due to privatization of the lodging facility, a statement of non-availability is not required to seek lodging elsewhere.
Temporary Lodging Facilities include:
Command sponsorship is necessary for those on an overseas assignment, if you want the military to pay for travel and housing of your family members. If you marry a citizen of your host country while stationed overseas, you must obtain command sponsorship in order for the military to pay for your spouse’s travel to your next duty station. If you are a married soldier or have custody of your children, make sure your orders state “dependents-yes”. If your orders do not state that, contact your losing unit to have your orders amended.
Concurrent travel means your family members will travel with you. Concurrent travel must be authorized on your permanent change of station orders or the military will not pay for your family to travel with you.
Marriage is a major life transition. If you get married before or during your Permanent Change of Station please inform your immediate Chain of Command. Also see your unit S1/personnel for specific procedures. In order for the Army to pay travel and housing for your spouse it is very important to have all the facts and necessary documents completed and on-hand.
