During normal work hours (Mon-Fri 0630-1530), members should report in the proper uniform of the day to Seattle Personnel Services Branch located on the third floor of building 1, room 310. After hours, members must report to the Command Duty Officer (CDO) at the Basic Enlisted Quarters (BEQ). Members reporting to the CDO are required to report to Personnel Services Branch on the next business day in the proper uniform of the day. During your stay, it is highly recommend that you take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with all that the city of Seattle, and the surrounding area, have to offer.
Members of other commands who are issued temporary orders to Base Seattle by their permanent unit are to report immediately to the Personnel Services Branch for check-in. Members are assigned to work at Base Seattle or at one of the other tenant commands. Members are normally assigned to work in positions that fit their rating and pay-grade.
TDY members must be prepared to leave at a moments notice. Sometimes cutters schedules can change quickly depending upon there current mission. It is best to be prepared to leave quickly so keep a bag ready to go. Base Seattle does not normally provide transportation to the airport unless it is extremely short notice or a group of people (6 or more), when traveling on official orders, you are reimbursed for any expenses incurred while traveling when you submit your travel claim. The use of the airport taxi service "Shuttle Express" or other local taxi services, will normally costs between $30.00 to $40.00.
Note: Permanent Staff members must notify their chain-of-command of their intentions to depart. Our staff will endorse the orders, communicate with the underway unit that their shipmate has arrived, make travel arrangements as applicable, update DEERS/RAPIDS database, CG POV Decal database, and enter any entitlements into direct-access. Unfortunately our BEQ cannot accommodate families, temporary lodging can be found at Fort Lewis, the Navy Lodge at Smokey Point or a local hotel.
