Joint Base Lodging

Joint Military Base Lodging

The U.S. Department of Defense operates a total of 12 Joint Bases. The most recent BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) in 2005, led to the decision to form more joint bases to make the United States Military efficient. The BRAC Report created 12 joint bases from 26 military installations that were in close proximity or shared a boundary. DoD then combined these branches and bases under one host command. As a result of BRAC, the Defense Department merged 26 domestic Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps installations to form 12 joint mega-bases. The Air Force leads six bases which include: Andrews AFB, MD, Charleston AFB, SC, Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, Lackland AFB, TX, Langley AFB, VA, and McGuire AFB, NJ. The Navy leads four bases including: Hickam AFB, Hawaii, and Andersen AFB, Guam. Hickam was absorbed by Pearl Harbor, the Anderson was placed under Navy administration of JB Naval Base Guam-Andersen. The Army leads two joint bases, including: JB Lewis-McChord, which includes McChord Air Force Base in Washington State.

Lodging Reservations

Rooms are available to Active Duty, retirees, NAF or DoD civilian employees, and sponsored guests. Each Joint Military Base will have its own policy for reservations. In many cases, staying on base will be less expensive than staying off-base at a commercial hotel. Reservations can be made at or below the DoD Per Diem Rate for lodging when traveling on official travel orders. Most reservations will be prioritized based on whether the traveler is on order (PCS, TDY, TCS, TAD, etc.) or if the guest is visiting the base while on non-duty or off-duty travel.
