Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Installation Access
DoD ID card holders (active and reserve component military personnel and their family members; retired military personnel and their family members; and federal workers and cleared contract personnel) -- may enter JBM-HH, including Fort Myer and Henderson Hall, Va. -- and Fort McNair, District of Columbia, by presenting a Common Access Card (CAC) or DoD- or other federally-affiliated ID card.
All non-DoD or non-federally-affiliated ID card holders and drivers of commercial delivery vehicles (includes visitors and contractors who do not qualify for DoD ID cards -- volunteers, church goers and nannies, for example) will be directed to Hatfield Gate -- Washington Boulevard at South 2nd Street, Arlington, on the Fort Myer portion of the joint base; and Second Street Gate -- 2nd Street, south of P Street on the Fort McNair portion of the joint base.
These non-DoD- or non-federally-affiliated visitors could include someone who is your guest, and they must have an NCIC-III (National Crime Information Center) criminal history check prior to being granted access. To prevent long lines and backups at the access control points, these non-DoD-affiliated visitors are encouraged to pre-register at the Visitor Control Center in Building 415, on the Fort Myer portion of the joint base.
