A Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move is a move between one duty station and another. It applies when your new duty station is more than 50 miles away from your old duty station. It could also be a move between the last duty station and home of record upon retirement or discharge.
If you have received orders to San Antonio, chances are you are headed to one of the major military installations housed under the name Joint Base San Antonio. The Air Force is the leading agency for Joint Base San Antonio, comprising three primary locations at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Randolph, plus eight other operating locations and 266 mission partners.
The PCS move can be one of the most stressful military events simply because moving is demanding and exhausting. Completing a successful house move requires a lot of work and organization.
