More Army PCS Questions

DH & I are PCSing to Campbell in late September or October...

You all have already helped me with some questions... I called DH's recruiter and he answered some questions about it...

He mentioned calling the transportation office, the finance office (to get a travel advance), and he mentioned JPPSO....

We still don't have paper orders, but when we do... who do we need to contact first? I want to make sure we have all we need lined out, have all our ducks in a row, whatever you wanna call it LOL.

I hate not being able to do much without the paper orders. But any advice on who to contact first and things we need to do ASAP is appreciated. Thanks!

your DH will take car of this at BC, they will walk him thru the entire process. there is no "we" - he will have to do it all from BC

HE cannot do anything without hard copy orders.

all you have to do is wait- there is nothing you can do.

I know it is hard to be patient and you want answers- but unfortunatly the first move is the hardest and he will have to do everything himself.

This. And get used to this motto: "hurry up and wait"

I was asking for US so I can let HIM know.

I said I know we can't do anything without the hard copy orders... I'm trying to give him a heads up about what he's going to need to do.

There is a WE I can still try to be knowledable of the things HE needs to do.

Yeah thanks for that useless piece of information Anon. I'm familiar with this already.

 There are these awesome people who work her local ACS building, that I am sure would be very welcoming to answer any and all of her questions. Just takes walking outside.
