Reporting Procedures

All incoming military personnel report to their individual Commands/units and sponsor for each branch specific orientation. Each branch of military has their own reporting in and after hours procedures; please let your Command and Sponsor know when you are arriving and where you are staying. Fort Meade is a large post and bus transportation is very limited on post. Incoming personnel will need a vehicle to get around on post.  There are no car rental agencies on Fort Meade, but many car rentals agencies are available at the Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. 

For Army personnel, if you do not already have a Sponsor assigned to you before arriving to Fort Meade, you will be assigned a Sponsor when you report to your individual unit. Your unit will schedule you for the Army “Start Right” (a 2 day In processing program). Day 1 of Start Right is medical and financial in processing. All Army personnel should bring their 201 file, any receipts for the finance office and their dental records.  Army spouses are encouraged to attend Day 2 of Start Right. Free Childcare is available by calling CYSS Parent Central Registration Services at 301-677-1149/1156 but you must be registered with the CYSS.

Incoming Navy, Air Force, Marine and civilian personnel report to their individual command /personnel office.  You will be enrolled in your own service’s orientation process and will be informed on which day spouses are encouraged to attend. 

All Military Spouses are invited to the “Welcome to Ft Meade” Newcomer’s Orientation held every month at Army Community Service (ACS). Please call ACS, 301-677-5590, for information and to make a reservation.
