Newcomers are also encouraged to contact their local Personal Property Office as soon as possible after receiving orders to arrange shipment of household goods. Once shipment dates are known, you should contact the Personal Property Office at Naval Submarine Base New London by calling (860) 694-4650 to arrange storage or delivery of household goods.
All new personnel should hear from a gaining-command sponsor shortly after receiving orders. If you do not, contact your gaining unit and ask for your sponsor’s name and phone number. Your gaining command should also provide you a mailing address where letters can be forwarded until a permanent address can be established. If not already received, you can also call the Fleet and Family Support Center at (860) 694-3383 or DSN 694-3383 to request a Welcome Aboard Packet.
