Quarters ‘A’ is designated command quarters and is reserved for the Sector Commander.

The three “B-Block” duplexes (6 units total) are designated for senior officers and their families on accompanied tours. The Sector Logistics Department Head makes housing assignments for these units through the Housing Office. Normally, officers assigned to these quarters include: Deputy Sector Commander, Department Heads, Senior Medical Officer, and other senior officers (O-5). If a given set of quarters is not occupied by one of the officers identified above, the next senior officer(s) serving an accompanied tour will be offered the quarters with the understanding that they may be displaced and moved to another unit.


Personnel desiring an upgrade may place their names on a waiting list with the Housing Office. Due to the volume of inbound and outbound personnel during a typical transfer season, no upgrades will be made during the transfer season. Upgrades will be typically be assigned from the top of the waiting list. A member with a change in dependency (increase in number of dependents), however, will take priority over a member simply seeking a larger living space.
