Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. The PCS process has been hectic and seems like its been non stop.

I only was home from the school house for about two weeks before I began the PCS process. It went pretty smoothly and I'm sure it varies from post to post and unit to unit so I won't go in great detail about it. I had no hang ups so it was a quick process. I signed out for leave on the 14th of May and headed to where I was going to be recruiting and started looking for a place to live.

Once I got here the search was on, it took about a week of looking before I found anything. I used all the days I put on my leave form, I didn't take the option to check in early.

The first day at the station was something new. Of course the day I show up the CO and 1SG were coming down for a PCS award for a outgoing recruiter. They were pretty cool. Later that morning I went up to the company headquarters to inprocess there, it was only a one page info sheet, I also talked with the CO and the 1SG about their expectations and all that. After that I was done for the day because my appointment to inprocess battalion was for the next day.

I had to drive about an hour and a half to get to the battalion, not bad since my station commander drove the GOV there. It was pretty informal, basically everything was done by civilians. I got my government cell phone and car (Pontiac G6). I'll get my computer when I get back off of Permissive TDY. It took four hours to get everything done. When we were done we headed back down to out neck of the woods and I was done for the day. I go back in like 10 days which is cool, I mean I already have a place to live but they pretty much give it to everyone. Also I don't think they care much since I don't go on production til July. They'll take care of everything for you, TRICARE, Travel, Travel Card, DTS, etc.

Inprocessing was quicker and easier than I imagined. There isn't too much different to know other than the extras you get as a Recruiter such as the car and phone. The biggest thing I can think of was TRICARE because basically picking the doctor is up to you.

Thats pretty much everything that has happened in the last few weeks. Keep in mind that my battalion may be different than others. I know the website says to go to the battalion HQ your first day but when I called they said go to my station first. Other than that I think most things should be pretty similar. As for all the things that I needed was my orders, leave form, latest NCOER, ERB, PT card and thats about it. Don't ask me why thats all, it seems to me like it should be more. Well good luck to all those out there. Ill be hoping I'll be able to keep you as updated as I can. I'll try not to be so lazy about this site in the future.

Friggin' awesome. I thought maybe you forgot about us. Thanks for the post, big guy. I lined up my BN a couple weeks ago, and I should be finding out my company/station tomorrow or friday. The joys of being a volunteer recruiter...I don't even go to school til September. Where did you even end up? I don't remember seeing what actual station you went to.
