    Will the Army move an E-3 and cover the costs?

    Advertisements
    My husband and I are PCSing to Alaska sometime, don't know when for sure yet, we get our orders the 24th. We've been told since my husband is only an E3 that the Army wont cover the costs of the moves since he's so "low" in rank. He'll be an E4 hopefully around Feb 11th, atleast thats when hes eligible to gain rank. We've also been told that since it's an OCONUS move that they are required to pay for the move, but like I said I've heard some many different stories, I don't even know where to begin. So my question would be does or will the Army cover the costs of a move for a E3?

    I'd be kinda shocked if they didn't cover the costs... I thought everyone was covered, regardless of rank....

    of course, I don't really know anything.

    I'm sure another lady on here can give you a straight answer though. good luck

    I don't think they can do that because of rank. The army pays for everything and your PCSing so they should!!

    this is COMPLETELY not true!! the military will pay for any one to PCS regardless of rank.

    the only money difference is the ammountof DLA and it will be the lowest amount of 1800.
    everything else: per diem, MALT, TLE, amounts remain all the same.

    I'm with the others, they shoud pay for the move reguardless of rank, no one I have ever known reguardless of rank has ever had to pay for their move.

    The navy moved DH and I to the bahamas when he was an E2. They have to pay to move you...and anyone who told you otherwise is full of it. Do they honestly expect you to pay to move yourselves to ALASKA? no.

    Good luck!
    Sad, sad, sad. Pathetic, actually.

    I also posted this years DLA rates in this forum http://forum.militarysos.com/showthread.php?t=130089 so you can see how much you will be getting.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.
