Transient Personnel Unit (TPU)

Welcome to Transient Personnel Unit (TPU), Yokosuka, Japan the Gateway to the SEVENTH Fleet

Mission Statement 

     Our mission is to expeditiously process Sailors through the administrative, and regular transfer pipelines for commands that, because of deployments or overseas location, cannot provide appropriate facilitation themselves. We are committed to customer-centric delivery of trained, motivated war fighters to the 13 deployable units assigned within SEVENTH Fleet Area of Responsibility.

     TPU is dedicated to the premise of “Service to the Fleet” while complying with all applicable governing instructions. Our secondary mission includes contingency/surge operations and restricted berthing of authorized personnel per governing instructions. TPU processes over 1,000 Transient Sailors annually and manages the barracks that house them. We are a 24/7 operation.

     We are located at TPU Building 1969.
