The garrison is closing. Soldiers are transitioning. There’s no way around it: If you’re a Soldier or spouse, at some point you’re going to visit the Central Processing Center on Conn Barracks, more commonly known simply as “Building 40.”
If you’re like me, then you don’t like wasting your time or having to wait in lines. Hello, this is Deborah Lawson and I am the Director of Human Resources. I see thousands of Soldiers and their families walking the halls of Building 40. Take it from me, there’re a few things you can do to reduce your wait time by as much as 40 percent.

- Know your destination. We assist over a hundred Soldiers, civilians and family members each day by providing them with several programs and services catered to their needs.

When in doubt, ask someone.
