Moving frequently is part of military life.

In fact, military families move an average of once every three years. The Department of Defense estimates that one-third of all military members make Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves each year.

Moving to a new city is both a thrilling adventure and an intimidating change. It allows you to see parts of the country or even the world you might not have seen otherwise. You get to embrace a new city with new people. However, uprooting yourself from familiar places and people is never easy, and you will face many challenges as you adjust to your new locale.

Relocating to a new city can be stressful for anybody. You have to pack all your belongings and hope they make it to your new home in one piece. Then you’ll have to unpack and set everything up again.

Your family will be confronted by many significant changes once PCS orders are received. The good news is moving gets a little easier as you gain experience.

In this article, I will share with you tips that can help you conquer the unnecessary stress that military relocation can bring.

What is a Permanent Change of Station

A Permanent Change of Station is an official relocation of an active duty military service member- along with any family members living with him or her- between one duty station and another, or between a final duty station and home of record upon retirement or discharge.

It is a longer-term assignment, generally lasting two to four years. It applies until mooted by another PCS order, completion of active duty service, or some other event.

CONUS moves refer to moves inside the continental United States while OCONUS moves include moves to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories, and overseas.

Governor Larry Hogan announced Wednesday that all new E-ZPass Maryland customers will not have to pay the $7.50 transponder fee, which is estimated to save Marylanders $46 million over the next five years. The decision follows a 2015 announcement when Hogan said there would be major toll rollbacks.
