Whether you’re assigned to Hickam, Wheeler or Bellows on Oahu, Kilauea Military Camp on Hawaii or one of the many operating locations throughout the Pacific, you will in-process through your gaining orderly room. If you are being assigned to a geographically separated unit, call the Force Management Flight at 808-449-0668/0669/0670 for an appointment.
Your sponsor should meet you at the airport. If not, taxis can take you from the airport to the base. You must ensure that the taxi driver has a pass to enter the base. If the driver does not possess this pass, you will be dropped off at the Hickam Main Gate. Shuttle services are not available from the Main Gate to your on-base destination, i.e., billeting, unit CSS/orderly room, etc. Public buses (Bus 19) can also take you from the airport to the base, but luggage is not allowed on board.
On your first duty day after your arrival, contact your CSS/orderly room to arrange for in-processing. Your CSS will schedule you for the mandatory Ohana Aloha Newcomers’ Orientation that provides information on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s mission and available services. Spouses are encouraged to attend.
Be sure to let your CSS know if you and your family plan to attend the free bus tour, which is directly following the Ohana Aloha Newcomers’ Orientation. The bus tour is sponsored by the Friends of Hickam. See historical landmarks, learn about local culture and take in the beautiful vistas.
