Remember MAY for Moving

School isabout to end for the students. Peak military PCS moving season is about to begin. The summer months are usually the peak military moving season with military families being moved all over the world.

Moving is different for every military family. One way to make the PCS or other move less stressful isto plan ahead. Start by draftig a rough plan of what your family needs and will need for any move. When your spouse gets orders to the next duty station, DON'T WAIT!

Don't wait for someone to tell you what is next. Stay ahead by finding out everything you can about the military move. Don't wait to sak questions when it is time to move. Ask your questions before a move is on the horizon. If you don't have to PCS or do another tye of military move, then use MAY as the month to develop your MOVING PLAN.
