In Hot This Week, Military Life

If you found this through our email or social media, welcome! We hope this comprehensive list of websites, blogs, and resources for military families will help you when dealing with some of the uncertainty with the COVID-19 outbreak. First and foremost, you are not alone. Many military families are unsure on how this will impact PCS, travel and daily life. And while we do not have all the answers, we do have some ways to get through the next few months. If you’re craving some connection, join us in our Facebook group, Things I Wish I Knew Before I PCS’d for weekly LIVE meetups like toddler music time or nap time yoga (for adults and kids). 

If you have an upcoming PCS, please connect with your command, as each command will have specific information on your move. 

We do hope you find these resources helpful and if you’d like to talk to someone about your current or upcoming PCS, our PCS Mentors are on standby to assist with questions. Get connected now!
