Customer Satisfaction Survey (CSS)

We value our member's feedback and want to know about your PCS experiences. We encourage members to fill out the CSS for their move, which helps identify those moving companies that provide poor services. The feedback we receive from the CSS surveys will limit/prevent the ability of poor performing moving companies to get future Government shipments. #PCSWith2020Vision

Please see below for updated III MEF/MARFORJ authorized leave and liberty areas.

Your use of good judgement in evaluating the risks associated with leave and liberty solidifies the effectiveness of HPCON safety protocols.

As the holiday season approaches, and more areas are open for leave and liberty in Japan, remember to protect those to your left and right by continuing to follow HPCON safety protocols.

The health of everyone in the Indo-Pacific region is a community responsibility. Enjoy your time in Japan, but remember: No Complacency!

Important information on Authorized Travel Areas for Iwakuni.
10/30/2020

Important information on Authorized Travel Areas for Iwakuni.

Despite published changes to the III MEF travel boundaries for personnel in Okinawa, there are no changes to the MCAS Iwakuni authorized travel areas this week. MCAS Iwakuni leadership is currently evaluating COVID trends and will look to expand travel boundaries in the near future.

The MCAS Iwakuni travel stipulations apply to ALL SOFA members presently at, visiting, or assigned to, MCAS Iwakuni.

Leave, Liberty, and Travel:
- MCAS Iwakuni personnel are authorized to travel within Japan, as long as you do not travel to areas designated as high risk or within “Red Zones.”

- If traveling in the prefecture of another military installation, you must ALSO adhere to their travel and liberty policies. Example: If installations in the prefecture you are visiting do not allow dine-in eating, YOU are not allowed to dine-in while visiting that prefecture.

- You may travel by POV, taxi, bus, train, Shinkansen, bicycle, unicycle, ferries, rental car, and commercial air travel.

- You may not visit off-base bars, tattoo parlors, taverns, massage parlors, karaoke clubs, night clubs, disco clubs, hostels, snacks, lounges, pachinko parlors, public bath houses (onsens), and establishments that restrict entry to adults only.

- Spectator sporting events that include large crowds are off-limits when social distancing cannot be maintained.

- The high-risk areas you cannot visit are the following Prefectures; Fukuoka, Kyoto, Osaka, Aichi, Saitama, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Okinawa, and the cities of Kobe and Nagoya. These are all “Red Zones” and are off limits. These off-limit areas can be found and seen on a map at https://www.mcasiwakuni.marines.mil/COVID-19-Orders_FAQ/

- You may travel through high-risk areas or “Red Zones” as long as you do not stay in that area. When traveling through high-risk areas, you are only permitted to do what is necessary to get to your final destination by the most direct route possible. Here are two examples:
1. If you travel by Shinkansen from Iwakuni to Tokyo, you are allowed to change trains at Tokyo Station, even though Tokyo is a “Red Zone.” The idea is to continue your travel out of a “Red Zone” as quickly as possible.
2. If you travel by POV from Iwakuni to Shiga (“Green Zone”), you will have to drive through Kyoto (“Red Zone”). That’s okay! Just don’t make any unnecessary stops in Kyoto. Stopping to get fuel or get some to eat on the road is okay, just don’t sit down in a restaurant and hangout. Keep on trucking.

- Overnight liberty is authorized within the “Green Zone.” Occupancy in an authorized facility is limited to a single family, or no more than two unrelated individuals. You cannot stay within any high-risk areas or “Red Zones.”

Face Coverings:
- There is no limit to the number of people who may travel in a POV together, as long as everyone is properly seated with a seatbelt and are wearing face coverings when social distancing cannot be maintained.

- Face coverings are required when entering any room or building, other than your own domicile/room. If you are eating at a restaurant, remove your face covering to eat, then put your face covering back on at the conclusion of eating.

- Face coverings are required when you are around other people, outside of your immediate family. Meaning, if you are walking down the street with one or more people, every person in that group will have a face covering. This also applies when riding in a car with other people, outside of your immediate family.

- When in public off-base, face coverings are required at all times, inside or outside, unless conducting individual style physical fitness activities (running, biking, swimming, etc). Contact sports are not authorized at this time.

- Face coverings are required for anyone age 3 and above.

- Neck gaiters and face coverings with valves are not approved forms of face coverings.

- Ensure the face covering covers both your nose and mouth.

- Wear your face covering in the gym. You will not like the consequences if you don’t.

Visitors:
- Visitors from the “Green Zone” are authorized to come aboard the Air Station. Visitors from the “Red Zone” are not authorized to come aboard the base.

Restriction of Movement (ROM):
- ROM means not leaving your domicile for 14 days and not coming into contact with anyone from outside your domicile.

- Those in ROM will be tested for COVID-19 no earlier than Day 10 of their ROM period. Personnel in ROM may not exit ROM until negative test results are received AND at least 14 full days have been spent in ROM. Once you receive your test result, whether positive or negative, notify your chain of command/organization. A negative test for COVID-19 does not mean you may leave ROM early; you must complete 14-days ROM. Those who test positive for COVID-19 will transition into an isolation status, where they will remain for a minimum of 14 full days, from the test date, unless they develop symptoms which will require additional isolation time.

- Household goods may not be delivered to those in ROM under any circumstance.

- ROM is to be strictly adhered to. Failure to take ROM seriously compromises every Air Station effort up to this point to keep our community safe. Those who violate ROM procedures may face administrative or disciplinary action.

Returning to Japan from another country commercially:
- If you are presently outside of Japan, or a person within your chain of command/organization is presently outside of Japan, the return to Japan plan is available on the Air Station website. The Air Station must have awareness of every single person that is returning to Japan before the return occurs, therefore, ensure your chain of command/organization is aware of, and has approved, all travel.

***IMPORTANT****IMPORTANT****

If you used a Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) for Personally Procured Moves (PPM) expenses and you have been notified that your account is delinquent, please contact your Agency Program Coordinator (APC) and inform them that the charges are related to your PCS PPM. An open GTCC (one that is not suspended or cancelled) can be placed into a PCS/Mission Critical status for up to 120 days plus an additional 60 days from the time of disenrollment to pay any outstanding balances before you begin incurring service fees. The GTCC Regulations DoDI 5154.31, Vol 4, are located at www.defensetravel.dod.mil/Docs/regulations/GTCC.pdf. See Section 041308, Mission Critical – PCS, as it applies to individuals in a PCS status. #PCSWith2020Vision

Encourage all military members who are hurting due to the failure of this unit/section to contact media and their congressman. There has been nothing but disregard for veterans and a complete failure of any accountability or leadership. They are over 90 days behind on processing and have complete disregard for those who are hurting especially Vets who have gotten out of the military.
Semper Fi, I wish all U.S. Marines and Marines ret. and their families a happy Merry Christmas, stressless Holidays and a Happy New year.
