Reporting Aboard

When you receive orders to WAESCHE, you will be assigned a sponsor and will receive their contact information in your Welcome Aboard message.  Make early contact with your sponsor in order to coordinate your arrival to the ship and to answer any questions. If you cannot reach your sponsor, contact the Base Alameda Point of Contact as provided in your Welcome Aboard message.  To ensure we are prepared for your arrival, check back with WAESCHE one to two business days prior to reporting.
