Our office will submit a request letter to the Base Visitors Center for those researchers not affiliated with DOD. Please provide the following information: Visitor's Full name and birth date. Bring a current driver's license and proof of current automobile insurance. The base requires these in order to issue a Base Visitor's Pass.
