    Do you need it for orders to Hawaii or Alaska?

    For the Navy you need it in both locations because they are considered OCONUS. It allows you to receive station allowances.

    Yes, otherwise you wouldn't receive the proper COLA, nor would you receive plan tickets when it came to PCS-ing to and from those areas, and etc.

    You're Army? I am nearly positive they have to go thru overseas screening, which includes the medical stuff. But Tripler AMC is here and it's HUGE and they handle everything.

    Navy does not do overseas screening to HI. But they also don't allow accompanied families under E-4. (the Army does)
