Gain access to base as a civilian
Under DoD guidelines, adults and certain children (children who are 16 years old or older and are driving a vehicle) without a current active duty military I.D. card, family I.D. or retiree I.D. must go through the VCC for a pass card that will allow them unescorted access to Fort Sill. All visitors must complete a Fort Sill Form 118a, Request for Unescorted Installation Access to Fort Sill . By submitting your form, you agree to a background check, which uses the National Crime Information Center Interstate Identification Index, a Federal Bureau of Investigation database that provides criminal histories from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. After completing and signing the form it will be taken to the Visitor Control Center located just before the Sheridan Road Gate, T6701 Sheridan Road Fort Sill, Ok 73503, with a government issued ID. Once the request has been processed, and you have your visitor’s pass, you may enter Fort Sill through any gate by presenting your pass and photo ID.
