Sponsorship

Sponsors are an integral part of the relocation process for both military and DA civilian personnel and their Family members. Sponsors should be trained in the process before sponsoring an incoming service member or civilian employee. Sponsorship should be made available to anyone making a permanent change of station (PCS) move. Sponsorship helps to ease the transition for the newcomer as well as Family members in integrating into their new assignment and community. Following are various resource materials for anyone who will become a sponsor.
