Prepare for Your PCS with UShip’s eBook “Easing the Stress of Moving for Military Families”

You can never have too many resources at hand to help you. And, if you’re anything like me, you tend to overeducate yourself and absorb all the pitfalls and opportunities to be as prepared as possible.

While SargesList’s 60+ page Ultimate PCS Guide is packed full of tips, guides, offerings, worksheets and checklists, USHIP has come out with their own formidable version that is worthy of digesting and assimilating prior to your next PCS! It takes a deep dive into the specific area surrounding stress, what it does and how to deal with it head on.
