Beginning Oct. 1, the Freedom Inn Dining Facility will no longer permit civilians to dine at DFAC for lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Civilians only will be allowed to dine for lunch and breakfast on Mondays and Fridays.

All meal hours and times are still in effect. Service members have priority during scheduled hours of operations

The change in civilian dining is a result of a comprehensive review conducted by Headquarters, Installation Management Command, and the Department of the Army G4 (Lean Six Sigma Project), reflecting that not all regulatory guidance is being followed and/or enforced.

Current funding constraints and fiscal responsibility demand compliance with DoD and Army regulatory guidance.

In accordance with IMCOM fiscal year 2013 funding guidance, commanders at every level and installation are encouraged to take the initiative to focus limited resources on their intended purpose: Subsistence-in-Kind (meal card issued) for Soldiers and service members.

Garrison commands will begin a plan effective Oct. 1 to optimize DFAC operations, ensure that DFACs incur no additional costs for nonmilitary diners and operate within their funding allocation.
