Reporting:

Students report to the O'Kane Submarine Training Facility Quarterdeck in Building 544, at the Naval Base, Point Loma, San Diego.


Berthing and Messing:

Berthing: Out of area students report to the Naval Base, Point Loma, San Diego BOQ office in Slattery Hall (BLDG 601) or BEQ office in Bishop Hall (BLDG 300). Advance arrangements are advisable to avoid having to use facilities at other San Diego area BOQ/BEQs or off base facilities. The parent command must coordinate with their local SATO office to obtain berthing reservations or be issued non-availability numbers. Reservations must be confirmed prior to executing TAD orders:

Naval Base Point Loma, San Diego BEQ/BOQ...DSN 553-9381 Commercial (619) 553-9381

(1) When berthing reservations are confirmed, attach a copy of the confirmation to TAD orders for verification when member checks in.

(2) When unable to obtain confirmed reservations, notify COMSUBPAC/LANT Training Division by message or phone prior to detaching the student from the parent command in order to determine if additional per diem funding is available: COMSUBPAC Training Division DSN 473-0496/473-1069 Commercial (808) 473-0496/1069

Messing: Messing for enlisted personnel is provided at the Naval Base Point Loma Galley. Members from out of area commands not receiving Commuted Rations (COMRATS) and receive per diem at the messing available rate should complete a DD Form 1351 upon their return to the parent command to receive COMRATS for their period of TAD assignment to O'Kane Submarine Training Facility. Per Diem at the messing available rate covers approximately 50% of actual meal cost if the member chooses to eat at the base galley. Commands should ensure TAD members have sufficient funds to cover the entire period of TAD.
