Wow! I know you must be thinking that I am a sage. Maybe clairvoyant. How do I know that you get really stressed out when PCS'ing? As if meeting the new First Sergeant or Commander isn't enough, you have to pack up your entire life, trust that the movers will not destroy half of your belongings, locate a new home in a hopefully good area, and ensure you are still performing at your highest level. Easy Peasy.

As my husband and I sat and talked about our blog post for the day, we ended up marveling at the lack of information that is disseminated for military members when they PCS to a new base or post. When he was transferring from Fort Benning to Fort Carson, he was sorely lacking in resources and ended up not utilizing the many resources that would have made his PCS more smooth and efficient. His real estate agent was some rando he selected from the interweb, (obviously days before Veterans Housing Network) and the home he purchased remotely was not quite the charmer his agent described. Of course, most of this did not matter too much since he found himself in the sandbox for most of his time stationed at Fort Carson, but it sure would have been better if someone, anyone, would have made resources available to him. Let's face it, you need all the help you can get!
