Episode 94 – Preparing for an Overseas Move

Milspouse Matters episode 94 Planning for an Overseas PCS Move

Milspouse Matters Ep. 94 with Jen McDonald

On this episode, we’re talking about planning for your overseas military move.

I’m sharing both some practical tips as well as preparing yourself mentally for this big change in not only where you live, but also likely a bit of a culture shock. It’s fitting that as I recorded this, I’d just returned from a long trip to Ireland, and that looong overseas flight was still fresh in my mind!

My own family went through over a dozen military moves, four of them overseas. I’m sharing some lessons learned as well as some of my hard-won tips as you prepare for your move overseas!

Resources mentioned in this episode: 

Military resources: 

  • It’s Your Move document offered by TRANSCOM
  • Plan My Move from Military OneSource
  •, the new system from USTRANSCOM to support the relocation of families during PCS (currently by invitation only)
