    All he should need to do is to call his new shop at the gaining base and see if one has been assigned to him. If one has not, he can ask for one. (We haven't always had a sponsor when we've moved... I think we've had one sponsor out of our 4+ moves.)

    Someone should be assigned. I agree with Brentscrystal. We haven't always had one either. And the ones we had sucked.

    Which base are you headed to? There may be someone here that is already there... sometimes having someone that you know (even via the internet) is better.

    I agree with that. We always end up with the least helpful person ever.

    I agree...if one is assigned he will get a package in the mail (generally how it has worked AF wise) with sponsor info and info about the area. If he doesn't get one and he knows his shop call the shop and ask for one or even if someone can get a package of info on the area together to mail to you.

    I know DH already knows a name for a military member he is to sponsor for the end of this year. He found out last year lol.

    We are not at that base, otherwise I would offer to help you out when you got here.

    We are having problems regarding a sponser. My husband has requested one about 3 times at the base we will be PCSing to, and noone has ever got back to him! He requested once in writting and called twice. I think that it's really unfair that they will not provide him a sponser when he is asking for one!!

    What normally do if we don't have a sponsor is to go to http://www.hanscom.af.mil/ and you'll see a lot of base info. On the right side of the page you'll a 'featured links' section... check out the 'newcomer' info. There is usually great info there. You can also go to www.afcrossroads.com , sign up, and then go to the left side of the page and click on DoD Installations, then click on the AF jet and on the next page choose the base you want to look at. There is a ton of info on that site... a lot of it for the local area.

    We've also contacted the local chamber of commerce and had them send a packet out to us, which is a fantastic help!
