Enhanced Security Impacts Process for Pease Air Force Gate Access to the Portsmouth VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC)
In December 2016, Manchester VA shared information regarding the changes to base access procedures at the Pease Air National Guard (ANG) Base and promised to provide you with additional information as it became available. Accordingly, please see the communication from the Pease ANG leadership.
As you review the documents, it is important to be to address the following:
Before you travel to the base, make sure you have a scheduled appointment
- Arrive 15-30 minutes early to the base for your appointment
- Complete the Background Check Form prior to your arrival at the security gate to expedite and streamline access to the base
- Bring the required identification cards as listed in the instructions
While we support these efforts, our priority remains to ensure all Veterans have seamless access to care. Please be assured your Manchester VAMC health care team is working closely with the Pease ANG leadership as they implement these changes so you experience minimal inconvenience in accessing the Portsmouth Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) on the Pease ANG Base.
For questions related to base access, please call the 157th Security Forces Police Services Section at 603-430-2622.
For questions related to changing your care to a location other than the Portsmouth CBOC, please call the Manchester VAMC Primary Care Service at 800-892-8384 Ext. 6885 or 6679.
How can you Help Homeless Veterans in New Hampshire?
The United States has set a lofty goal—to end veteran homelessness. Across New Hampshire, the Governor’s office, local and state officials, homeless service providers, public housing authorities, veteran service organizations, nonprofits, and state and federal agencies are working together to house all of our homeless Veterans. One program is the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program.
If you are a property owner or landlord, consider making apartments available to HUD VASH voucher holders. In today’s tight rental market, it is often difficult for veterans who are homeless to find stable housing that is safe, clean and affordable. The HUD VASH Program, which offers Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) rental assistance along with case management through the Department of Veterans Affairs, is one way that veterans can find their way home again. Through these vouchers, veterans pay an affordable percentage of their income toward rent, and the landlord receives a check for the remainder of the rent in the form of a Housing Assistance Payment. If you have a rental property, consider accepting VASH vouchers. First Lady Michelle Obama has released video encouraging property owners to help in this effort: watch it here:
