Smooth Move

The process of a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) resembles a large maze, where you know there is a beginning and an ending. However, the problem is selecting the proper path between the two. The Airman and Family Readiness Center has many resources to assist with finding the right path for your PCS.


Smooth Move

Hosted by the Airman & Family Readiness Center, this class helps military and civilian personnel, and family members, prepare for their upcoming PCS.  Experts from Housing, Travel Pay, Tricare, TMO, Family Advocacy, Legal Claims, and the A&FRC provide information on relocation entitlements and what to expect during your relocation process. Numerous resources are also available. Spouses and children are welcome to attend!

Time of workshop:  1300—1530

Airman’s Attic
Part of a PCS usually involves sorting through your belongings and deciding what is no longer needed. The Airman’s Attic, located in Bldg 2447, accepts donations and gives them to Fairchild AFB personnel. Help your fellow Airmen!  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1532057707006135/?fref=nf
