Congratulations on your assignment to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL). Requesting a sponsor is one the wisest
pre-move decisions you will make during this important transition.
All Soldiers (Colonel and below must complete their DA Form 5434 (Sponsorship Program Counseling/Info Sheet) in the
Army Career Tracker (ACT) at
The DA Form 5434 is used to transmit sponsorship requirements to gaining/loosing commands allowing the organization the ability to
assign a sponsor and facilitate contact with the incoming Soldier. Ensure each portion of the DA Form 5434 is completed in its entirety
so that assigned sponsors can assist with and provide information on all aspects of the upcoming transition. Your sponsor will contact
you via email or letter with information about your new unit and the surrounding communities.
We highly encourage to visit the
JBMDL Newcomers Welcome Webpage where you will find useful information pertaining to housing, schools,
MWR and various other installation activities and opportunities. The Installation Sponsorship Liaison can be reached via email at
