JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska —

Friendly reminder from Security Forces:

Per JBERI 31-107, when transporting a privately owned weapon on JBER, you must secure your unloaded weapon in a case, separately from ammunition, and as far as possible from the driver/passengers. Don't forget your weapons card! If stopped by Security Forces personnel, you must immediately tell them you have a firearm in your vehicle.
