Fort Wainwright Newcomers Orientation, where Soldiers, Family Members, and DoD Employees are welcome!

Note: This event has already passed.

This orientation provides basic introduction to the Fort Wainwright Community, its agencies and services and focuses on cultural adaption. The speakers include: the 1-25 SBCT Brigade Commander/CSM, USAG Commander/CSM, Aviation Task Force Commander/CSM, Bassett Army Community Hospital MEDDAC Commander/CSM, Alaskan Culture, Safety, IG, Garrison Chaplain, and Family and MWR.

As a part of the Newcomers Orientation, the Information Fair is a great way for incoming Soldiers, Family Members, and DoD Civilians to learn what Fort Wainwright and the surrounding communities have to offer. Representatives from many local businesses, agencies, and organizations are present to help you familiarize yourself to your new home.

The Newcomers Orientation brief is mandatory for all incoming Soldiers to the installation and takes place the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.

The orientation will be held at the Last Frontier Community Activity Center from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. Military Spouses and DoD civilians are highly encouraged to attend.

Before attending the Newcomers Orientation, take a look at the Garrison Commander's Welcome Letter and Information Packet. The packet will help orient you to Fort Wainwright and the surrounding communities before you attend the official orientation.
