Right Start Newcomers Event

Welome to Barksdale!

Right Start is a highly acclaimed program that welcomes newcomers to Barksdale AFB. The orientation is hosted by the Airman & Family Readiness Center and occurs two times per month at the Barksdale Club or the BUFF Event Center on base.

While Right Start is kept to a half-day for those at their second and subsequent duty station and for time efficiency, it is rich in content! For those who have Barksdale AFB as their First Duty Station after Technical School, you will also attend
mandatory training in the afternoon as part of the Newcomer's Orientation. The organizers utilize a blend of briefers as well as personal interaction with subject matter experts from organizations from on base and from the local community.  Guests can look forward to learning local policies, cultural information and opportunities, while checking off some mandatory briefings. The information fair is a crowd favorite and allows interaction in a trade show style setting. Both members and spouses are sure to learn something new.
