It should have been easier. After 15 months, we were PCSing back to Fort Bragg, NC. Yet, the easy jaunt down the east coast quickly turned into a logistical and emotional nightmare.
Hiding away from crying children in the bathroom of our cramped hotel room (4 of us on 2 beds), we tried to coordinate household goods and closing dates.
The stress in that tiny hotel room was real. “There must be an easier way,” we said. But after we settled in, we learned two valuable lessons:
#1 – there is not a single product that brings PCSing Service Members and their Families through the entire process.
#2 – our entitlements actually authorized us 10 days in a suite.
It was then we realized PCSing Service Members and their Families are losing valuable entitlements, as we aren’t sure of how the process works.
We also have the added stress of fumbling through countless checklists, opinions and questionable websites to find good information.
It’s been 6 years since that month we PCS’d, and we are working hard every day to make PCS Easier for our fellow Service Members and Families.
