tabBase Tours and Orientation Flights 

Base Tours

Unfortunately, we are fully booked for our 2015 tour season.  For ROTC requests, please call 754-2104

The Public Affairs office can offer two base tours a month and are only offered on the first and third Thursdays from March to October.  These tours are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Tour requests are now being taken for 2015 tours. To request a tour, download the form below and submit to the Joint Base Public Affairs office.


Windshield Tours

Windshield tours offer the public a chance to get a quick look at the base, its mission partners and quality-of-life facilities. These tours usually last about two hours and take place solely in a vehicle. This is a great opportunity to get a sense of what the base is like when a whole day option isn't available.

Send us an e-mail to request a tour.

tabSpeaker's Bureau 
The Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Speaker's Bureau provides its service members an opportunity to connect with the local community. Likewise, it gives community members a chance to learn more about the military and more specifically, the missions at JB MDL. 

Members of the Speaker's Bureau are available to speak on a variety of topics such as career opportunities, military history and leadership skills.

To request a speaker, download the Speaker Request Form below and submit no later than four weeks prior to the date of the event to the Joint Base Public Affairs office.
