Travel guidance for military duty at Dobbins ARB

DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- On behalf of Col Craig McPike, Dobbins installation commander

The following provides clarification and greater detail to travel guidance for reporting to military duty at Dobbins Air Reserve Base:

In order to perform duty in a military status at Dobbins ARB when traveling from a distance of greater than six hours (by land) or 450 miles, a waiver must be submitted through your unit leadership and approved by the 22nd Air Force.  

The local area is considered within six hours by land or 450 miles of Dobbins ARB for the purposes of this guidance.

Examples:

If traveling from outside the 6 hour, 450 mile driving ring:

  • A member, regardless of military status or not, driving from more than six hours (450 miles) to perform military duty at Dobbins must have an approved waiver in advance.
  •  A member, regardless of military status or not, that flies using commercial air to perform any military duty at Dobbins must have an approved waiver in advance.
  • A waiver is not required if a member is traveling from within six hours (by land) or 450 miles of Dobbins ARB to perform military duty.

Alternative options to reporting to station are telework, and for drill weekends, excusal or reschedule.  

The 94th Airlift Wing remains at mission essential and for official business only reporting. 

The bottom line: a travel waiver will be considered if a member is traveling from outside the six hour driving ring (450 miles), or by commercial air, if the member has proper justification for duty, such as deployment training or proficiency and currency requirements.

Please refer questions to your chain of command.
