Relocation Services: Your moving experience begins when you receive your Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. Knowing what to expect and who to contact when you receive your PCS orders, will determine how ‘Smooth' your move is. Whether it's your first PCS or you're a veteran at it, Marine & Family Programs staff is here to help. Our office maintains the most current and up to date information about Navy and Marine Corps installations, and can help make your move to or from Japan as ‘Smooth' as possible.
