  • 97 AMW implements local DTS help desk

    Travel in the military happens sporadically throughout an individual’s career. Ranging from days to months anywhere across the globe, travel is almost inevitable. When Airmen are traveling, they must keep track of their travel costs while performing their duties. That is accomplished through the Defense Travel System. Anyone who has used DTS knows the struggle using the system because of general updates and information required for filing a voucher. As a result to save Airmen time, the 97th Comptroller Squadron has set up a new local DTS Help Desk program, which started Oct. 30, 2018, at Altus AFB. The program allows walk-ins and will be available every Tuesday and Thursday, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in the 97th CPTS conference room in building 52.
