A permanent change of station is part of military life. It can be overwhelming to manage all the details and keep track of the things to do when preparing to move. Even with all the checklists in the world, it is a stressful time for military personnel and their families.
One of the more difficult parts for service members who are stationed OCONUS is deciding whether to ship their vehicles or buy another one once they are settled.
