Red stickers on phones
In accordance with AFI 33-219, Department of Defense (DoD) monitors phone conversations of telephone calls made from or to a base number. The red stickers (DD Form 2056) on base phones is consent for this practice. Because DoD provides the phone service, it also monitors calls to ensure the phone is appropriately used.

If your phone does not have a sticker, or if it is faded to the point where it cannot be read, contact your Unit Telephone Control Officer for a new one.

Pre-separation counseling
If you are considering separating or retiring within the next year pre-separation counseling at the Airman and Family Readiness Center is mandatory and should be taken before the Transition Assistance Program Seminar (TAPS). For an appointment, call 784-4228
