Naval Base Guam to Resume Trusted Traveler Program
SANTA RITA, Guam – U.S. Naval Base Guam (NBG) will resume its Trusted Traveler Program effective 5 p.m. today.
The Trusted Traveler program authorizes Department of Defense (DoD) ID card holders to escort guests onto NBG.
The program was temporarily suspended for the annual Commander, Naval Installations Command anti-terrorism exercise Citadel Pacific 2016, held this week.
The program authorizes registered vehicle drivers/operators who present a valid DoD ID card to vouch for all occupants of their vehicle when entering the base. Trusted Travelers will not be permitted to vouch for visitors in another vehicle, nor will Trusted Traveler apply to personnel entering the base by means other than a vehicle.
The following ID cardholders are authorized to be Trusted Travelers:
• uniformed service member or federal government employee with a valid Common Access Card (CAC)
• military retiree with a valid Department of Defense (DoD) identification credential
• dependent older than 16-years-old with a valid DoD identification credential
Contractors and vendors may not act as Trusted Travelers.
All visitors are reminded to have a valid photo ID with them at all times since 100 percent ID checks may be conducted at any time in accordance with random antiterrorism and force protection measures. The Trusted Traveler program may be suspended if force protection conditions change or at the discretion of the commanding officer.
