How do I gain access to Pease Air National Guard Base for care at the Portsmouth Community Based Outpatient Clinic?

1. The Pease Air National (ANG) Guard Base complies with Air Force Directives regulating personnel access to military installations. Effective February 1, 2017, enhanced security measures will be in place and the following information is provided to ensure Veterans enrolled to the Portsmouth Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) are able to continue accessing the CBOC for their healthcare.

2. Individuals possessing an Active/Retired/Family Member Military ID Card or Federally-issued Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card have full access to the common areas of the base, including the Portsmouth CBOC.

3. All other Veterans are now required to have a scheduled medical appointment prior to accessing the base. If you arrive at the base without an appointment the security forces will provide you instructions to park outside the base entrance and ask you to contact the CBOC at (800) 892-8384 Ext. 5501 to schedule an appointment. The VA staff at the CBOC will inform the Security Forces when an appointment has been booked. You may encounter a delay in accessing the CBOC so we highly encourage you to schedule your appointment prior to arrival at the base.

4. Veterans without a Military ID Card or PIV Card must possess the following forms of ID for access to the base and CBOC and undergo a Background Check:

a) NH Veteran (February 1-September 30, 2017) - NH Driver’s License or US Passport.
b) NH Veteran (Starting October 1, 2017) - NH Driver’s License and a Veterans Health
Identification Card (VHIC)/Veterans Identification Card (VIC). If the Veteran has been issued a NH REAL ID Compliant Driver’s License or has a US Passport, a VHIC/VIC is not required.
c) ME Veteran (Starting February 1, 2017) – ME Driver’s License and a Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC)/Veterans Identification Card (VIC). If the Veteran has a US Passport, a VHIC/VIC is not required.

5. Background Checks – All Veterans falling into Paragraph 4 above are required to undergo a Background Check in addition to providing identification at the gate. Once the Background Check is complete, it will remain in effect for one (1) year.

a) Veterans will be required to complete a Background Check Form (Attachment 1) prior to Security Forces allowing access to the base/CBOC. From February 1 through March 31, 2017, Veterans will not be required to wait for Security Forces to conduct the Background Check and will be allowed entry to the base and CBOC.
b) Effective April 1, 2017, Veterans will be required to have a completed Background Check prior to being granted access to the base and CBOC. Completion of the Background Check can be completed at the gate; however, Veterans are encouraged to complete the Background Check prior to arrival at the gate to avoid late arrival to their appointment.

6. Escorts and Guests. Veterans cleared for base access can escort one individual or Family Member, including minors, onto the base. The individual must also present an identification card (Driver’s License, Passport) and complete the Background Check requirements.

7. Veterans or escorted individuals who cannot meet the identification card or Background Check requirements will not be allowed access to the base.

Download and fill out the Authorization Release (Vetting Form). Please bring it with you to the main gate or mail it to:

157th Security Forces Squadron Police Services Office

How do I request a flyover?

Flyover and Static Display Requests

The flyover and static display request and approval process is managed by accessing the Air Force Aerial Events website.

Community members may submit requests, receive notification of approvals/denials and track requests on this site. The site walks requesters through the process step by step.

Once a flyover/static request is approved, it is the requester's responsibility to find a unit to support the event. The site features a "find an aircraft" link that lists flying units in the local area and/or surrounding states.

Please note: Aerial Events approval for a flyover/static does not guarantee that it will be provided. It is up to the base's individual flying units (ultimately the respective wing commander) to determine whether they can support the flyover/static display request based on availability, training schedules, etc.
