Government Travel Card training,

By By 2nd Lt. Timothy Slechta 628th Air Base Wing Financial Services Flight commander

The current Government Travel Card has substantial shortcomings and delinquency management can be burdensome for service members, first sergeants and commanders. The GTC travel card is being replaced by a completely different Controlled Spend Account travel card within the calendar year for all active duty members and civilians where applicable.

The 628th Comptroller Squadron is offering training sessions on the new CSA card, March 14 through 18 in the base theater on Joint Base Charleston - Air Base. We encourage all current active duty and civilian GTC cardholders to attend one of the training sessions. For more info, contact 2nd Lt. Tim Slechta at 963-3723 or Larry Wallace at 963-4909.
