Shipping Out to Basic

You have completed every step at MEPS and are scheduled to return one last time before you ship out to your service's basic training installation.

You are undoubtedly curious how you'll get there, especially if you've never travelled by commercial air before. You may have questions about security and travel requirements, how much money you'll need or what happens if any problems arise. 

The following video entitled Recruit Travel should answer most of your questions, but if any questions remain unanswered do not hesitate to ask your recruiter or MEPS personnel.

Once an individual ships out from MEPS for basic training loved ones will need to contact them at the Basic Training Center to which they shipped.
