Instructions for Sponsoring Guests for this event

The event is open to military and DoD ID cardholders, to include military, military family members, DoD civilians, and retirees. Rapid Gate credentials are not authorized DoD ID cards and will not be accepted for concert access. Sponsored guests of DoD ID cardholders must have a valid “Rock The Troops” special event pass to be shown at the gate for base access. (see Downloads for forms)

From now until Oct. 20, sponsors can submit the request for “Rock The Troops” special event passes for their guests age 16 and older and U.S. citizens only by completing the Rock The Troops Access Request Form. For foreign guests, complete Foreign Nationals Visitor Request From. Request form should be emailed to: 647SFS.JBPHH.SpecialEvents@us.af.mil by Oct. 20 for proper processing. For questions regarding the forms, contact the Nimitz Pass & ID Office Special Events main line at (808) 449-0870 or call the Pass & ID Office main line at (808) 449-0865.


Sponsors must use their military/DoD email account to submit their special event pass request. This is important to verify the sponsor's base affiliation and to prevent unauthorized transfer of PII (personally identifiable information). Requests from a personal email account such as gmail, aol, yahoo, hawaii.rr will not be accepted. Sponsors shall submit names of guests age 16 and older for vetting by Security (ages 15 years and younger do not require a pass). When the checks conclude and results are favorable, the sponsor will receive an email with the passes to distribute to their guests. Sponsored guests should be prepared to show their event pass and picture ID at the gate on the day of the concert.

In the event dependents must submit the request because .mil access isn't available due to military sponsor being away, they will have to deliver their request to the Nimitz Pass & ID Office (Bldg. 3455) before Oct. 20. For other questions regarding the base access process, contact the Nimitz Pass and ID section at (808) 449-0865.

Each DoD ID cardholder can sponsor up to 10 guests. Unauthorized duplication of visitor passes will result in loss of sponsorship privileges and possible further actions.

Event passes may also be obtained at the Nimitz Pass and ID Office (Bldg. 3455) located outside Nimitz Gate. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. If passes are not obtained prior to Oct. 20, guests may expect delays at the Pass & ID office and should prepare accordingly. Processing times may vary due to increased wait times.

To avoid long lines on event day, please fill out the special event form if you plan to sponsor guests and submit electronically by Oct. 20.

Tomorrow.... we will go back stage and relive The Desert Trip together: Baby boomers and millennials rock out at record-breaking music festival... Over last and this weekend, the first edition of Desert Trip took place in Indio, California - at the same site as Coachella Festival boasting headlines sets from Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, The Who and Roger Waters, the average age of performers was 72, In the event, the audience skewed much older than your typical festival, but that didn't mean it was a pipe-and-slippers affair. On the contrary, the audience seemed determined to prove that the Woodstock spirit lives on. I even saw some Hawaiian shirts in the crowd, and you and I will be apart of it tomorrow for the Electric Lunch from 12-2pm on 1015 KROCK.
