The MCMWTC conducts formal schools for individuals and battalion training in summer and winter mountain operations and they are also involved in testing cold weather equipment and clothing, and developing doctrine and concepts to enhance our Corp's ability to fight and win in mountain and cold weather environments.
Even though the MCMWTC is located in a pristine and beautiful National Forest there are some negative factors that must be addressed:
1. MCCS does it's upmost in providing day-to-day necessities in their exchanges at main side and the housing area but the closest major shopping location is Gardnerville, NV, approximately 50 miles north on Hwy 395. More diversified shopping is found in Carson City, Nevada's state capitol, 20 miles north of Gardnerville.
2. Although the Naval Hospital Twentynine Palms staffs a Clinic at the MCMWTC they only provide routine services for active duty and family members, but no dental services are available for family members. Here again, the closest hospital or dental services are located in Gardnerville or Carson City.
3. California Department of Transportation and Nevada Department of Transportation do their best to keep both CA Hwy 108 and U.S. Hwy 395 open during adverse weather but be advised that the MCMWTC is located at over 6500 feet above sea level and powerful winter storms are not uncommon and annual snow fall reaching up to five feet is not unusual, but as a consolidation it does melt quickly.
Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
