SargesList is again helping military and their families navigate Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves with the second edition of their free Ultimate PCS Guide ™.
Last year's 2012 edition rendered 10,000 downloads in five months after it was released in July. This year, SargesList has improved, updated and expanded that guide and has released it at the start of the military's biggest PCS season.
Frequently moving, uprooting and quickly readapting are among the challenges military and their families face. Systems and processes for moving often change within each branch, and while the military offers informational training, it can be overwhelming to map out the myriad of details for a PCS.
Expenses can easily get out of hand during the PCS process. Often times, due to inadequate planning or unforeseen circumstances, these moves can result in personal financial losses. The guide prevents unnecessary hardship by detailing a variety of time-tested strategies developed by military, veterans and their spouses.
"One of my jobs is relocation manager so I have read and reviewed numerous other PCS guides and found that [the 2012 Ultimate PCS Guide] has a easy-to-read helpfulness that keeps you reading to the very end," said Dave, who serves in the Coast Guard. "When I was finished I had felt like I had an intense briefing on everything PCS, including the dreaded acronym maze that we are all trying to master. It made me feel like I can now start working my way through the timelines and checklist and feel like I have a handle on what to expect as my family ventures on this new and exciting journey."
The guide includes step-by-step instructions, chronological information, current financial entitlements, checklists, PCS acronyms, worksheets and tips for budgeting, planning and executing a successful move. Readers will also find easy, clear instructions on navigating the government's DPS military move (move.mil) system.
In addition to the guide, SargesList provides listings for housing, hundreds of thousands of jobs, a place to buy and sell items, vehicles, promote their businesses and get connected with others, which help families quickly adjust to their new surroundings and thrive at their new duty station.
Launched in early 2011, SargesList is a Veteran-owned company that provides free trusted classifieds and local base information for military communities to buy, sell, trade and connect at over 500 installations. The site was built by the team that developed and maintains the Automated Housing Referral Network (AHRN.com). Unlike other classified sites, it provides military families with a more trusted interaction for users who register with their DOT MIL email. This helps users identify who is in their Department of Defense network.
