Installation access will be granted between 0800-1900, with exceptions approved on a case-by-case basis for Veterans with Fam Camp or lodging reservations, or as a sponsored guest in base housing.


Eligible users can pre-register their VHIC at the VCC, Monday - Friday 0730 - 1630.

• Veterans or caregivers eligible for DoD installation and shopping privilege access must obtain the appropriate credentials from the VA.

• The credential identified for SCD veteran access to resale and MWR facilities is the VA issued Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC) marked “SERVICE CONNECTED,” “PURPLE HEART,” or “FORMER POW” from the VA. 

• Upon the first visit to the installation, eligible Veterans must present their VHIC at the visitor control center. In addition to the VHIC, users must present an accepted form of identification for installation access. These forms of identification are outlined in DoD Manual (DoDM) 5200.08 Volume 3.
