I know in the army that if a school is longer thn 20 weeks it is considered a PCS move. What are the specs on PCS moves regarding school lengths?

BUMP

I know in the Marine Corps it was 6 months when we moved for his MOS school, but I don't know about the Navy.

 It's the same. They throw a fit about it if you try to move your family with you for school though. Even though it's technically allowed.

Good. DH may be going to a joint service school operated by the Navy and they are saying he can't bring us. But, I know the army says we can go. So all we have to do is fight it?

I really don't know if you can fight it. We also didn't get reimbursed for travel because it wasn't a PCS move, just a TCS move.

The army doesn't do TCS moves anymore, so its either TDY (less than 20 weeks) or PCS. The problem they're running into is what the Navy does. Which I don't understand. The army is footing the bill so why does the navy care?

Might have something to do with how the school runs or what the housing situation looks like.

Like the pp said 6months. Neighbors of mine just got moved here to RI from Spain for 6months for school and then they are pcs'ing to Florida. The Navy paid for and is paying for it all. He didn't want to move his family for the 6months but for some reason they did anyways. Not sure if it makes a difference that they were overseas? Goodluck!

I think it really depends because when hubby's first submarine went to decom, only the Nukes family's for the most part got to move as they would be there til decom was over. My husband was there for 9 months ( "coner' ) but that wasn't long enough for a move because they weren't going to get stationed there afterwards & weren't there for the end of decom. We weren't going to anyway because he was coming right back to the base we were at.

Well, we'd have to live off-post, but thats what BAH is for. I mean, it would actually save the government money than paying him TDY, lodging, family sep, and the BAH for me here. The BAH in MD is $1000 more than the one in FL.
