*CASUALTY AFFAIRS:

 

Reporting of Retiree death should normally be done either before or after the disposition of the deceased remains.

The only document needed is the death certificate, however do not delay the reporting because of no death certificate. It can take months to receive a death certificate in our local area.

The Casualty Officer will prepare all military documents including arrears of pay (AOP) for month of death, SBP annuity for the surviving spouse and NSLI government life insurance if applicable.

The Casualty Officer will set up a meeting with the survivng spouse and the Director of Retiree Activities to cover other personal affair matters.

Death of a surviving spouse should be reported to the Casualty Officer in order to update the retirees pay data, i.e. stop of SBP, and DEERS system.

* North Gate Construction

As vehicles approach the barrier, they should pull the front of the vehicle up to the sign that reads "Stop here on Red". The light should be red, wait for light to turn green and then proceed. As soon as subject vehicle clears the sensors, the light is reset to red and the procedure is repeated. If traffic should back up on the inbound lane, a sensor will tell the light to turn steady green for about 45 seconds, traffic should proceed through the barrier area and once traffic subsides, the sequencing of the lights will go from green to yellow to red, and then revert back to the red/green scenario until traffic gets heavy, then the steady green process is repeated. If you approach the barrier and the light is green, proceed through.


* EAST (INDUSTRIAL DR) GATE CONGESTION:
 
It has been recommeneded that individuals use the North Gate (8th AF Museum/Club) to help alleviate congestion delays at the East Gate. The East Gate was not designed for heavy traffic and was meant to be used for truck, commercial and East Reservation residents.
