In the effort to maintain proper social distancing and limit the amount of time it will take to process the influx of Marines reporting to Henderson Hall due to the termination of the stop movement, the Inbound Section of the Consolidated Administration (CONAD) Center will begin conducting mass check-ins. This will drastically reduce the time and individual Marine spends in processing with CONAD.

We ask that all Marines arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled brief in order to have their documents printed and prepared prior to the start time. All members will need to attend one of these briefs in order to complete their audit and travel claim so that they may be processed into the Battalion.
