Deployment can be a challenging phase of the military lifecycle, but it’s important to know that you don’t have to go through it alone. The military provides a variety of resources and support programs — ranging from educational briefings to morale calls — for your loved ones, children and service members to ease the stress of deployment. Military members may be assigned to a specific installation but support may come from local communities, Yellow Ribbon events or the installation itself.
While relocating to Izmir, make sure you maintain close contact with your sponsor. Your sponsor will be able to tell you about your new unit, and give you a telephone number and address where he or she can be reached. You will receive an Izmir Welcome Guide via email with information on housing, base facilities and programs, and the local community. Your sponsor will normally be the person at the airport to meet you and get you settled in during your first few days on station. There is a mandatory newcomer's briefing held at monthly. Also, if your sponsor has not communicated with you or answered questions you have; feel free to contact the AFRC at DSN: 314-675-6638 or Commercial 011-90-232-455-6638.
Start making arrangements for your assignment to Izmir. Setting up two separate households, banking arrangements, allotments, communications, transportation, and just about every other aspect of your life must be looked at and sorted out. Adult job changes are disruptive in and of themselves. Don' t try to do it alone, use the base and community resources at your disposal. They' re here to make your relocation as smooth and painless as possible for you. Make sure you obtain a Tourist Passport prior to coming to Izmir Turkey ( you will need it to purchase a Turkish SIM CARD, PUK, WI-FI Set-up, Pay rent, etc.) for your unlocked U.S. or Foreign Cell Phone and travel to non-EU countries. The country of Greece, regardless of being in the EU, requires a Tourist Passport. Your NATO Orders will not get you into Greece to visit.
