Sponsors are responsible for the action of their guests at all times. At no point should a guest be unaccounted for while aboard the installation.

MCCS employees may sponsor non-CAC contractor’s family members (spouses and children, if the contractor is deployed and only for the duration of the deployment).

All VA patients will be directed through the VA Eligibility Clerk at Building 3010, Room 5 for processing. The following is the procedure for base access:
- The VA Eligibility Clerk will conduct a query which will reveal if the veteran has an outstanding want and warrant, is a registered sex offender or if they are on active probation or parole.
- Once the query is completed and no disqualifiers are revealed, the VA patient will be issued a base hologram which will be affixed on their Veterans’ Administration card for the calendar year.
- In the event a VA patient is accompanied by another adult defined as a person 18 years of age or older, those persons will also be subject to the same vetting requirements as previously stated. If a query of an associate/occupant reveals a disqualifier, current policy procedures are applicable i.e. deny access or detain in the case of a want/warrant.
