“Important information for Attendees”


  • There has been a recent trend of missing, incomplete, or inaccurate GTC info for attendees which has resulted in delays on arrival day. UTR’s should ensure accurate GTC information while submitting nominations.​

  • Tired of lugging your Deployment gear around? We can store your luggage and professional gear at our facility so you don’t have to worry about it. Pack a 72-96hr bag with civilian clothes and toiletries for your time at the DTC and leave the rest to us.

  • Note for commercial travel please be sure all checked baggage is within the weight requirements of no more than 70lbs per item. 



"What Attendees are saying"

"At first I didn't think I needed to come to the DTC but I'm grateful I had this experience".

"I came in thinking we would just go through PowerPoints.  The group discussions help more than PowerPoint ever could.  I liked how they did not try to cram a bunch of information into us that we have been trained on before.  I appreciated the timeline and doing a lot more with a lot less.  It did not feel like an everyday Air Force briefing."

“Omg, what didn’t I like? The people were great, the rooms were great, and the country is great."
