We just got to this base in May, and now we just got orders to Germany. We are tentatively leaving here at the end of November right around Thanksgiving.
I am freaking out and SO SO SO excited!
Do we get any extra money when PCSing overseas vs stateside? Do we get anything upfront besides DLA?
What do most of you do about your cars? We are selling one and shipping the other. We havent had a chance to look up where the closest shipment place is, but we will obviously be without any car for a while. Do you all rent a car? Im worried about finances with such short notice, so I dont see how renting a car is affordable. Do they give my husband perdiem/malt to drive the car to the closest shipping port.
Where can I find the shipping port?
How much money should we have saved for an overseas move? We have about $2500 in savings now, but I feel like an overseas move will have lots of out of pocket expenses. Should I be worried about this?
I have a bunch more questions that Im forgetting lol. Im sure I will be back here editing this with more in a bit.
Any advice? We literally just found out this afternoon!
