PCS Move to Joint Base San Antonio


Fort Sam Houston, called “Fort Sam” by locals, is located on the northeast side of San Antonio, Texas just below San Antonio International Airport. It was named after Sam Houston, a U.S Senator, Texas Governor, and first President of the Republic of Texas. It houses some of the oldest historical structures on any Army installation.

Relocating from one place to another is an experience military families know too well.


Since transfers are inevitable, one of the major concerns of military families is whether to buy or to rent a home. This decision tends to be more complicated because they move frequently and sometimes with short notice.

Some active duty families choose to rent because military members may be called upon to deploy or change duty stations at any moment. Others prefer to invest in real estate despite the unpredictable lifestyle.
