Relocation Readiness Program
Relocation Readiness Program at Ft Wainwright is here to help with a comprehensive support system, whether it’s your first move or the last of many. We have all kinds of information and resources to help you and your family navigate your next military move.
Your first stop should be your local Army Community Service Family center to meet with a Relocation Readiness Program Manager who can get you started.
Fort Wainwright Newcomers Orientation:
The Fort Wainwright Newcomers Orientation and Information Fair are an interactive orientation and welcome fair hosted from 9am-3pm every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at the Last Frontier Community Activity Center, Bldg. 1044 Apple Street. All are welcome to attend.
