Harrison County Gulfport Our Military Arrival

 

See the Getting To & Around Harrison County chapter on Page 27 for information about local airports, train service and public transportation. The closest commercial flights land at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, about 7 miles from the base. Transportation is not provided to the base.

SPONSORSHIP

Contact your sponsor with your estimated arrival time and flight information if applicable before your arrival at NCBC Gulfport.

Sponsorship is vital to the relocation process. Don’t PCS without talking to your sponsor before departing for NCBC Gulfport. Your sponsor will answer any questions you have about the base and the local area, make lodging or dorm arrangements and meet you upon arrival. Your sponsor will be there to help you and your family until you are settled into your new community.

If you have not been in touch with a sponsor and your departure is nearing, contact your gaining unit or the quarterdeck at 228-871-2555.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

Cellphone use by the driver of a moving motor vehicle is prohibited on all Department of Defense installations unless the cellphone is used with a hands-free device.

From Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport

Take Highway 49 south until the Naval Construction Battalion road sign is visible. Take a right on Pass Road, and this will lead you into Gate 2.

From Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport

Take Interstate 10 Exit 34A to Highway 49 south toward Highway 90 (the beach). Turn right on Highway 90. Go to the third traffic light (Broad Avenue), and turn right on Broad Avenue, which will dead end at the main gate.

CHECK-IN PROCEDURES

All check-ins will report to their respective commands during duty hours. Prior arrival arrangements should be made through the command sponsor coordinator. After-hours check-in will be done through the quarterdeck, which can be contacted at 228-871-2555.

If you marry before your PCS, you must inform your command and follow the procedures exactly as given. Failure to follow proper procedures will result in the military not paying for travel or housing of your spouse. The same policy is true for moving personal effects (household goods) to your new duty assignment. You must have prior approval from the Military Transportation Office. The Gulfport office can be contacted at 228-871-4741.
