Directions to National Guard Drill Hall

Claude T. Bowers Drill Hall
1636 Gold Star Drive
Raleigh, NC 27607

The Claude T. Bowers drill hall is co-located at the North Carolina National Guard Joint Force Headquarters (JFHQ) / Emergency Management Complex at 1636 Gold Star Drive, Raleigh, NC 27607. This address will take you to a security checkpoint where you will be required to display a valid drivers license to enter. Inform the security guard that you are visiting for the weekly Civil Air Patrol meeting at the drill hall.

Please note: Depending on the online map used, the address above will sometimes map to different points along Gold Star Drive. There are two security checkpoints along this road, but only one is open and manned by security guards. The other is permanently closed. Please review via an online map (such as GoogleMaps) before arriving.

Once you are past the security checkpoint, proceed up the hill and take the first two left turns you can make. Follow the road for one quarter of a mile and the drill hall will be on the left. Park in any unmarked spot in the large parking lot. From the parking area, proceed under the awning covered walkway for access directly into the drill hall.
