Directions inside Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall starting from Hatfield Gate
Show your military ID or go through the checkpoint--If you do not have a Department of Defense ID card, you will be required to go through the security checkpoint. Your vehicle will be checked and you will be asked to show a picture ID to get on post.
Once you are through the checkpoint, you are on Carpenter Road.
Turn left immediately onto Sheridan Avenue. At the first stop sign, you will see the fire department on your left. Keep going straight. This is a residential area. Watch for construction, troops, and stop signs.
Continue to the T-intersection and turn right on Jackson Avenue at the stop sign. You also might see a thrift store sign pointing to the right.
Immediately turn left onto ????Forrest Circle????. Continue until you see a sign that says "All Trucks must turn Left." Turn left, go to the end of the road, and then turn right. You will be driving behind buildings on a back road. Please drive slowly.
At the stop sign make a right--if you continue straight through the stop sign you go down a hill away from the thrift shop. You are now in the thrift shop parking lot.
