If you're facing a permanent change of station (PCS), a leaflet published the Army Community Service can help. PCS Tips focuses on questions to ask and things to do before you PCS. As the leaflet points out, a move "can be one of the most exciting and rewarding parts of an Army career: new places, new faces and new challenges. However, for the soldier or Army family who is not prepared, a PCS move can be a very unhappy time." To avoid some stress associated with relocation, PCS Tips offers advice on planning the move, such as what financial burdens to expect --- travel costs, deposits and temporary lodging. It also covers topics such as Before You Go, Questions to Ask Your Sponsor and After You Arrive. Free copies are available at most ACS offices worldwide.
