On that note... We definitely need a government move because we are already on the other side of the country from our home of record. Has anyone had any experience with already being at the duty station and THEN getting a HHG? We are in a very unique situation... I think I am going to go set up an appointment with a moving counselor.
abuon, lol there was!! Sorry, I deleted it because I got the answer before anyone responded. But thank you so much!
Can anyone give me information about a "post-school/student" move for my husband? He's been in training and school since he's graduated boot camp, so he has not moved from his home of record yet. He is currently in training on the same base he has permanent orders to, but will be done next month... so we are trying to get an idea of how/when we can get things moved out here, and what he needs to do on his end. Thanks!
They will move you. Be aware, the move is paid as a reimbursement, not money up front. Are you going to have a packout or move your things yourself? There is a specific way to do the move, and mov.mil can help with that, or the personal property office.
If you are driving, he can ask for advanced travel pay. He needs to talk t the travel office, make sure he knows what to expect, which receipts to save, etc.
From what I get, he's finishing one course of training and his new first duty station is right there too, and he is applying for another special training program. Do I have that kinda right, Bronco?
Aboun, okay that kind of makes more sense. So there is a possibilty his orders would still be PCS but they would be unaccompanied if they were less than 20 weeks. He wouldn't technically be going to an A school, just training courses. I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not. He still would not be returning to this command though.
But I pretty much studied the Joint Travel Regulations handbook last night, haha, and what I've gathered is any orders under 20 weeks is considered a TDY and anything over 20 weeks is a PCS. A school might be an exception to this but I wonder if this would go for his training courses. He is under the impression that his first orders to his first training command will be over 20 weeks, because of a prep course he would do beforehand at the same installation. So I guess all we have to do now is just wait and see what his orders say... I swear my brain is in overload right now!!
I seriously appreciate all your help with this!
