Permissive Temporary Duty (PTDY) for House Hunting - Soldiers arriving with Permissive Temporary Duty (PTDY) for house hunting from their previous command must have their DA FORM 31 stamped by the Installation Housing Office (3171 Zinn Road, Building 1161) immediately upon arrival at Fort Sam Houston. Failure to have PTDY signed by the Installation Housing Office immediately upon arrival may result in the Soldier being charged leave for the PTDY period.

Soldiers who fail to do this will not be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket housing costs.
In-processing Procedures - All Soldiers must report to Military Personnel Branch prior to going to their department. This step is very important to ensure your in-processing is smooth. Please bring one copy of your orders and your DA FORM 31. Soldiers are given up to 10 duty days to complete all the tasks, in the appropriate ACU's. Once Military Personnel Branch has verified your assignment information you will be cleared to begin in-processing. You will receive a checklist with all the locations within BAMC that you are required to check in with. Once completed, the respective checklist must be returned to Military Personnel Branch so you can be released from in-processing status. Under no circumstances are personnel assigned to BAMC to in-process Ft Sam Houston without first in-processing Military Personnel Branch.
