Displaced Minot Air Force Base airmen and their families can expense up 180 days of storage fees that they might have incurred because of the historic flooding of the Souris River that occurred in McHenry, Renville and Ward counties, according base public affairs.
Col. James Dawkins Jr., 5th Bomb Wing commander, authorized the reimbursement of property storage and short-distance move expenses incurred by Air Force Global Strike Command Airmen and their families June 29.
Dawkins’ order applies to displaced active duty military and dependents whose permanent residence is located within evacuation areas. Additional storage or moving costs exceeding the allotted 180 days will be at the expense of the active duty military member or dependent.
All household goods shipment and storage requests under this order must be initiated in coordination with the 5th Logistics Readiness Squadron and the Joint Personal Property Shipping Office before Aug. 5. Property collection, transport, and storage can begin after Aug. 5 as necessary.
Affected members should report to their chain of command for further instructions on short distance moves and temporary storage at government expense.
