My Permanent Placement
Rose: I think we all know how we decided to place you guys. We asked you for a list of places that you'd be willing to transfer to, and we tried to match those lists with places that had openings. We then filled the openings with you guys and took the opening off the market and then asked the field management group and the headquarters management group if they would be willing to hold these positions for you. We had better luck with some of you than others.
De: So, for those of you that will be relocating, there's an office at DLA (our mother agency) that handles Permanent Change of Stations (PCS) and the cost. They have a customer care center and their number is..... Now for the list: Sarah, you're assigned to DRMS-P, Battle Creek. Dan, DRMS-P, Battle Creek. Aaron, DRMS-P, Battle Creek, Lawrence, DRMS-BCE, Battle Creek, John, DRMS-Central, Ft. Sill, OK. Casey, DRMS-Central, Wright Patterson AFB, OH. Julie, Camp Pendleton, CA. If you have any questions or concerns, let us know.
Meeting adjourned. Everyone, literally everyone, got exactly what they wanted. So, we all walk out in a daze, and get the heck out of dodge in case someone, anyone changed their mind.
So, here's a little about Camp Pendleton. It's in Northern San Diego, on the ocean. The nearest city is Oceanside. Camp Pendleton hosts over 60,000 military and civilian personnel every day, of which, it is reasonable to expect that I will be one.
