The Albuquerque MEPS is happy to announce the introduction of partial participation to family and friends during the Oath of Enlistment. This will only be offered on the day their Service Member ships to their Recruit Basic Training. We can only offer this program with your help and cooperation, as we strive to maintain the health and safety of our Service Members and our staff. In order to remain in compliance with the New Mexico Board of Health and Department of Defense guidelines, we require all family and friends who wish to view the ceremony to abide by the following list of rules:

1. If you are feeling sick, have been exposed to COVID-19, or have traveled outside of the state of New Mexico in the past fourteen (14) days, do not attend the ceremony. Please remain at home.

2. No more than two attendees may exit the vehicle to attend the ceremony. If more than two individuals are present, the remainder must stay in the vehicle.

3. Attendees should arrive 15 minutes before the Service Member's shuttle time. The shuttle time will be communicated to the family and friends by their Service Member the morning prior to their shipping. Family should not contact the MEPS to ask questions concerning the ceremony, and should direct all questions to their Service Member via cell phone. You may also contact their recruiter for questions.

4. Attendees must park in the designated areas, as indicated on the attached map, and stay in their vehicle until the Enlistment Officer directs them to their assigned viewing area.

5. All attendees are required to wear masks and maintain social distancing from the other viewing families. The health and safety of our Service Members and Staff is our primary concern. Failure to obey this rule will result in ceremony cancellation.

6. Attendees will be briefed on ceremony procedures, and each will have a quick opportunity to ask questions. Following the Oath of Enlistment, Service Members will march to the shuttle for transport to the airport. At no time will the Service Member be allowed to come into physical contact with their family and/or friends. Attendees must not delay the process, as we are on a strict timeline and the new Service Members cannot miss their flight.

7. This program is a "nice to have,” and we sincerely want families and friends to be a part of this day; however, if timelines or mission do not afford enough time for the ceremony, it can and will be canceled in order to ensure timely departure of the Service Members. In the event of ceremony cancellation, notification will be provided by your Service Member.

You can drop these coordinates into google maps for the ceremony location:

Last week ABQ MEPS partner with American Red Cross raised almost $5000 in donations to the VA Hospital.
One of the many ways we give back to our community.

American Red Cross SW

This year New Mexico Red Cross connected with Lt Col Squire and 1SG Tapia from the MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) in ABQ to raise almost $5000 in donations to the VA Hospital. We also had volunteers networking with other agencies and board member, Patricia Thompson, working with neighborhood organizations setting out collection boxes, not to mention staff members also making donations and utilizing a grant (HOPS - Hospital Outreach Program) to purchase the new t-shirts, underwear, socks and comfort kits.

New Mexico Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces initiates the drive 1 Nov of each year. We will also be doing something similar in the spring to support the various other programs at the VA Hospital that are in need.

It is truly a pleasure and an honor to support the VA Hospital programs and our veterans.
