Relocation assistance is available to military personnel and Department of Defense personnel and their families who are relocating to a new duty station, being deployed or separating or retiring from service. Pre-departure information is provided about the new duty station and how to request a sponsor if one was not assigned. The Relocation Assistance Office provides personalized settling-in services for new Marines and their dependents as the service member checks in, and at the base Welcome Aboard which are also open to all spouses and dependents.
Relocation Assistance has a Lending Locker available to check out household items for temporary use until household goods arrive.
Relocation Assistance at MCLB Barstow is here to provide support, information and resources needed for a successful move. We empower military families by discussing topics, tools, and resources for preparing for a move.
Moving with a family can be overwhelming. Add to that dealing with a special needs family member and you've now doubled or tripled the difficulty. Children can be difficult during these stressful times, regardless of their age. Allow us to help you get started and develop a plan that suits you and your family. Our staff is personable, friendly and willing to help you achieve your moving goals and deal with any emotional situations that may occur. Spouses are welcome to attend all classes and workshops, and they may stop by Building 126 whenever they need assistance.
Welcome Aboard briefs occur each quarter, and pre-departure classes (PCS Workshops) are available monthly. These classes equip the service member and spouse with the essential tools needed to overcome and adapt the challenges that often occur with relocation. Classes are interactive and include discussion based on the service member's individual circumstances. Mandatory for Marines and Sailors assigned to MCLB Barstow. Spouses highly encouraged to attend.
If your household goods are still in transit, come by and check out a hospitality kit from the Loan Locker. They are free of charge and equipped with basic kitchenware such as pots, pans, dishes and utensils. Children's cots, high chairs, microwaves, tables, chairs and vacuums may also be available. When planning your move, it is a good practice to bring some towels, linens and toilet tissue with you to use until your movers arrive.
We encourage service members and spouses to bring up their personal hardships and difficulties so that they may be addressed and consulted with the appropriate program manager. These hardships can range from financial problems and wanting to connect with other families to helping a spouse seek employment or marital issues. Whatever it is, we can help guide you to the resources you need.
