Relocation Services Overview
Relocation is a way of life for military members and
their families. The best way to make sure your
Permanent Change of Duty Station (PCS) move is a
smooth one is to know the organizations and agencies
involved in the relocation process. Knowing who to
go to and how they can help minimizes the stress that
comes with even the most carefully planned PCS
move. Contact Family Support Center Relocation
Assistance for more information.
