Military Entrance Processing Station


The New Orleans Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) is one station in a network of 65 MEPS throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The New Orleans MEPS relocated from its previous home of more than 30 years at Naval Support Activity on the Eastbank of the Mississippi River to the NAS JRB in January 2010. The New Orleans MEPS operates in Building 556 on Rinard Road.

The MEPS is assigned military and civilian personnel who process up to 150 applicants each day for the armed forces.

A separate DOD agency, the U.S. MEP Command (MEPCOM) comprises two geographical sectors and is staffed with personnel from all military services.

The mission of the MEPCOM and the New Orleans MEPS is to process individuals for enlistment or induction into the armed services, based on DOD-approved peacetime and mobilization standards. Three primary areas are considered in determining an applicant’s qualifications for enlistment: aptitude for military service, physical qualifications and background evaluation screening.
