Check-in Procedures

When you arrive at your new installation, you’ll need to follow installation-specific procedures. Each installation and service handles in-processing differently. Here, you can find installation-specific guidelines and a list of documents to bring with you when checking in. Reach out to the contacts provided if you have specific questions.




Traditional Reservists

Upon assignment to a squadron at March ARB you will receive a sponsor package from your gaining unit directing you to attend inprocessing at the Military Personnel Flight, Bldg. 441, on the Saturday of your first UTA at March. Inprocessing begins at 7:00 am and will last until 4:30 pm. You will receive briefings from the Wing/CC, Command Chief, OSI, Safety, Finance, Drug Demand, MPF, MEO, JAG, Airman and Family Readiness, and Chaplains. You will be met during the day by your squadron sponsor who will assist you with your inprocessing both base and squadron.

Your gaining unit will make lodging reservations for you if you are in a non-commute status.

ARTs and Civilians
