It’s that time of the year: January! This means that for most that are scheduled to PCS in the first 6-7 months of the year, the PCS ‘song and dance routine’ has started again. When are you moving? Where will you be moving to? Where are our orders?
Some of you maybe know that our family retired only in January of last year from the Army. We’ve had our share of moves and I very much empathize with military families! When it came to PCSing I felt for the longest time that there was not enough information given to the spouses, who for a large part help arrange and manage the PCS move too. The way it usually happened was that the soldier was briefed then was supposed to pass on all the information to the spouse when he came home. I talked to a lot of spouses, generally women, and I felt that the breakdown in communication -usually unintentionally- caused a great amount of stress. I put together “my” PCS guide at the same time when I started my website MilitaryDutyStations.com and MilitaryDutyStations-Blog.com (which I let expire) to help ease the frustration that this gap of communication caused.
When we retired I was afraid that my PCS guide would fizzle with our path into retirement so I allowed Sargeslist.com to use it as a baseline to their “Ultimate PCS Guide”.
Sargeslist took it up a notch, invited more military bloggers (mainly spouses) from all over the world to chime in and add their great PCS tips and knowledge . In 2012 the new Ultimate PCS Guide was completed and was a huge success! 50 pages filled with information in regards to budgeting, planning, entitlement and more.
