Eligibility

ELIGIBILITY


Our website, www.HanscomFSS.com shows you all the facilities and the great programs they offer. Most 66th FSS programs, events and facilities* are open to DoD ID cardholders, including active duty, reservists, DoD civilians, NAF employees, base contractors, retirees and authorized family members according to AFI 34-262, "Services Programs and Use Eligibility." Some priority restrictions apply; please contact the facilities directly for details.

Force Support Squadron facilities are not open to the public. You must be a Department of Defense ID cardholder and have access to Hanscom Air Force Base in order to use our facilities (some have even further restrictions).
Our squadron (Force Support) doesn't have any authority over entry procedures to the base - Security Forces oversees them. For more information on base access, you can contact the Visitors Center at 781-225-6642. To learn more about ID card requirements, call the Military Personnel Section customer support at 781-225-1320. Security issues prevent us from posting maps and directions online. But when entering the base from either side, the gate guards will be able to easily direct you to any facility you may be looking for.
*Airman and Family Readiness Center programs are free to all single and married Active Duty, Reserve and Guard Personnel, DoD civilians, retired military personnel and family members. The Veterinary Treatment facility is open to active duty, retired military members and their dependents holding a DoD ID card and eligible for DEERS enrollment.
