Welcome Aboard Station Golden Gate


Welcom from the Crew! 


Station Golden Gate is a unit with a wide variety of responsibilities and makes for an exciting career.

When you receive your orders a sponsor will be assigned to you. It is important that you speak to him/her prior to your arrival as they will help with your move and answer specific questions you may have about the unit or the Bay Area. Also ensure you discuss Golden Gate Bridge operations this unit performs to adequately prepare yourself.



Personnel (single or with dependents) may be required to apply for government housing. Housing is provided at Hamilton Field in Novato, California, approximately 25 minutes from the Station. You will need to consult with your sponsor to determine your status and requirements. Information on Novato Housing can be obtained by visiting the ISC Alameda website.
