Recruit Travel and Assistance

The DTMO Recruit Travel and Assistance Programs provides mission-responsive support for recruits traveling from Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) or their hometowns to their initial training centers. The Recruit Travel Program provides recruit travel routings for multi-modal air and bus travel.

The Recruit Assistance Program assists recruits during each step of their travel-from arranging onward transport in the case of airline delays or cancellations, providing directions, coordinating with service organizations like the USO or YMCA, to providing assistance with lodging, meals, or simply moral support, so that an enlistee's or recruit's first military travel experience is a positive one. The program is supported by the Travel Assistance Center (TAC), which can be reached at 1-888-HELP-1-GO.
