Students TAD to Marine Detachment Fort Leonard Wood School (to include INIWIC)
If you are a Marine and will be attending any training course aboard Fort Leonard Wood, you are directed to report into the Detachment S-1 with DTS orders (default form) in hand after you check into your course. All travelers will need to make lodging reservations via Defense Travel System (DTS) during the authorization creation PRIOR to your trip. If on base lodging is not available, confirmation of non-availability MUST be obtained through DTS. While here at Fort Leonard Wood, the Detachment S-1 will issue you a Reporting and Detaching Endorsement that WILL NOT include a Statement of Non-Availability (SNA) upon the completion of your training course.
The lodging hotel name in DTS for Fort Leonard Wood is “Candlewood Suites, Fort Leonard Wood” not St. Robert.
CHANGING FORM PREFERENCES
The S-1 will need all DTS orders to be in the “Default” format. To do so, follow the following steps in order to see if you have the correct SNA in your orders under the “Pre-Audit Flags” section.
1. Log into DTS.
2. Click the Traveler Setup tab.
3. Select Form Preferences.
4. Choose Authorizations and select “default” and save.
5. If lodging is not available, DTS will capture the SNA in block (7) “Pre-Audit Justifications”. This will reflect Privatized Lodging Not Avail which means you will rate the full rate for your trip. Print off the orders for your trip.
