Welcome Aboard Iwakuni

The Welcome Aboard Brief is a mandatory requirement for all SOFA status personnel, age 16 and above, including those on TAD or UDP orders for 30 days or more.

This orientation provides all the tools and information needed to embark on a successful tour at MCAS Iwakuni. Receive a comprehensive introduction to installation services, as well as a Japanese cultural presentation and information fair.

The SOFA license class and test are also offered. Late arrivals will have to attend the next available Welcome Aboard Brief.

Service members are permitted and encouraged to wear proper civilian attire. Childcare can be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis through the CDC or SAC.

Held on Wednesday if Monday falls on or near a federal holiday.
