Checking In or In Processing
Before arriving in Barstow, send a housing application if married (with a copy of your orders) as soon as PCSing orders are received. The sooner coordination is made with the housing office, the better the chance for assignment upon arrival. If not able to move into housing right away, MCLB Barstow offers at a nominal cost lodging at the Temporary Lodging Facility (TLF) located on the installation. To make your reservation, contact the TLF at 760-577-6418. If you have any questions contact your sponsor and/or the Personnel Officer at DSN 312-282-6086 or 760-577-6086.
Reporting Procedures - When you arrive to MCLB Barstow your sponsor should arrange to meet you on the first official day, and walk you through the check-in process. Your first stop on your official check-in day will be the Military Personnel Office located in the Red Wing, Building 15. After receiving your reporting endorsement and check-in sheet, you can then proceed to check in to the other sections. The uniform for all Marines reporting for duty is the Service Alphas. If arriving after normal duty hours, report to the Command Duty Officer, Building 15.Ensure you or your sponsor make reservations for temporary lodging prior to your arrival.
Getting Married Enroute - If you get married before you PCS, you must inform your commander and follow the procedures exactly as you are given them. The military will not pay for travel and housing of your spouse if you do not follow proper procedures.
