After months of planning your PCS, you’ve now landed at your new destination. Now it’s time for the fun part – building a nest and making it home. Here are a few ways to tap into the military community so you can settle and get into the swing of things more quickly.
A sponsor is a friendly face to greet you and your family at your new location and is someone with personal experience and plenty of recommendations. Typically of a similar rank and family status, a sponsor can assist with everything from finding the right housing options and showing you around the installation to the best places for kids to play.
As a sponsor, it’s your duty to provide information to new service members at your station. The new, interactive eSponsorship Application and Training gives you all the resources you need to be a successful sponsor.
No matter how many times you’ve moved or how much research you’ve done, the first days on a new installation are bound to be an adventure. That’s where military sponsorship comes in, offering something no briefing memo can – a friendly face and a wealth of personal experience.
