WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. -- Up until now, in-bound members to Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri were required to visit multiple locations to complete
their in-processing checklist.

However, the new Whiteman Welcome Center, building 3007 located next to the Youth Center and across the street from the Base Chapel, will serve as a one-stop shop for members to process through the Military Personnel Section, Finance and Medical.

Effective Feb. 2, 2018, all members are required to process through the center within the first 72 hours of arrival.

Sponsors will be responsible for scheduling an appointment for members prior to their arrival, and this can be done by coordinating with their unit’s commander support staff to schedule the appointments on the WWC SharePoint page. Sponsors are required to attend the appointment with the members.

All unit CSS that have not received training should contact Sarah Lovell, the True North program manager assigned to 509th Bomb Wing, for training and access.

In addition, in-bound members will receive a complete list of in-processing and resiliency required appointments to show their units post-appointment. Dependents who attend will receive personalized medical briefings and access to update their Tricare information.

For more information please contact Sarah Lovell at 660-687-3135.
