My PCS Nightmare on the www.ArmyWifeNetwork.com: Learning from my Mistakes!So my first Army move wasn’t exactly smooth! I was in school up until the day I moved! ( I graduated Saturday morning, picked up and loaded the moving truck Saturday afternoon, and moved on Sunday!) So I didn’t have a lot of time to pack, plus because in the Army’s eyes we had already moved there – my husband had to be there 6 months before me! So I knew we weren’t going to be reimbursed any of the expenses, and being a broke student I didn’t want to waste m precious money on boxes! Well a move without boxes as you can imagine!

Here is to hoping my next PCS is more successful! What are some of your PCS horror stories?

  1. Ahh the joys of PCSing. We are preparing for our 4th PCS (6th move overall) and while I try to be prepared as possible something always goes a little wonky. We always do partial DITY moves and we use totes instead of boxes, it has helped so much.

    1. Our main problem was my husband moved first (I was still in school) so in the Army’s eyes we had already moved so there was no reimbursement for anything in our DITY move pt 2! This upcoming PCS is going to be an experience since he is going to Korea and I am not!
