Welcome Aboard

welcome aboardMost people are familiar with NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which is a group of countries and partnership countries who are allies in the pursuit of peace and the improvement of military interoperability and capabilities. There are two headquarters to NATO.

One is the North American headquarters in Norfolk known as Allied Command Transformation (ACT). The European headquarters in Belgium is called SHAPE. The two headquarters combined, make up NATO.

ACT is a very unique command because not only is it a joint command (USN, USA, USAF & USMC), but ACT also has service members from 28 other countries onboard. It can be very confusing, and sometimes overwhelming working at such a large and diverse headquarters with so many high-ranking U.S. and foreign officials. Our exercises often take us to foreign countries and/or require us to assist officers and officials for other countries and service branches.

You should remember, you are not only representing the Navy, but you are representing the United States. It is your responsibility to remember your Navy training and education. Other countries service branches may not have the same rules and regulations you do in the USN, for example, some countries do not require their Soldiers to be covered when outside. However, you will remain vigilant in your military bearing and responsibilities as a U.S. Sailor.

Arrival/Reporting to ACT

NATO ACT is open Monday - Friday at 0600 to 2200 and on Det Norfolk Drill weekends 0700 to1600.

Reservists who are coming in for a drill weekend should coordinate reporting procedures with their unit chain of command and their local NOSC. Muster for each unit on drill weekends is determined by the unit chain of command.

If you are coming to HQ SACT for a visit (AT/IDTT/ADT), you will report to the OSO/AOSO for check-in. When you arrive to NATO ACT please enter the main doors and ask the Petty Officer of the Watch to call the OSO or Assistant OSO and we will escort you to get a badge. Driving to NATO ACT from the airport, you will exit the airport and continue straight on Newtown Road for about 1 mile. You will then follow the signs to get on 64 West. Once you are on 64 West get in the far left lane and follow signs to 564. From 564 take the first exit onto Terminal Blvd. You will exit onto Terminal Blvd and drive about 1.5 miles and turn right at Meredith Street into the Naval Station Annex gate. Proceed through the gate and NATO
