You should know that a one-way commute of 45-60 minutes is not uncommon in the Andrews area. Traffic jams are a daily reality. A recent study showed that Washington DC area commuters lose an average of 78 hours per year in traffic tie ups, making it the 2nd worst commuter traffic situation in the U.S. (Los Angeles was first).

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 (301) 981-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
