Fort Wainwright's mission is to deploy combat ready forces to support joint military operations worldwide and serve as the Joint Force Land Component Command to support Joint Task Force Alaska. Our strategic location, superior training capabilities and dynamic relationship with our local civilian communities make Fort Wainwright and United States Army in Alaska a significant national asset and world-class power projection platform for military operations anywhere in the world.
Fort Wainwright is considered an overseas tour. If you have dependents and you want your family members to accompany you to Alaska, your PCS orders must say "concurrent travel" and have each family member's name on your orders. Each family member must have completed the Exceptional Family Member screening and have Command Sponsorship.
If your PCS orders say "deferred travel" for your family, then you need to travel to Alaska alone. After you arrive and sign into Fort Wainwright, you can begin the Command Sponsorship process. Have your family complete the Exceptional Family Member screening at the losing post and wait to hear from you for further instructions.
For more information, you can inquire with your current Military Personnel Division, local Army Community Service, Exceptional Family Member Program Manager or call Fort Wainwright's ACS, Exceptional Member Program Manager at 907-353-4243 or DSN 317-353-4243.
