PETERSON AFB, Colo. --
Once again, the peak season of permanent change of station is upon us. I am one of those moving this summer and understand that whether this is your first PCS or your fifth, transitioning from one base to another can be very stressful and present many challenges.
However, knowing where to turn for help during your PCS can make the move much easier on your and your family. We have many great resources and some fantastic personnel here on Peterson ready to help.
Peterson strives to provide unsurpassed installation support to its warrior Airmen, whether they are arriving or departing the base. You may not be aware but for your ease and convenience, many great resources to assist you with your move can be found on-line.
One place to find a wealth of information is Peterson's website, http://www.peterson.af.mil/
. On the home page are two great links for those who are PCSing: the Newcomers and People Helping People links.
The Newcomers link provides information for those coming to Peterson in regards to items such as reporting in, important phone numbers and the base guide. People Helping People is a key resource for those PCSing; it provides access to Peterson's most valuable support agencies, such as the Airman Family and Readiness Center. Also, take a look at the Standard Installation Topic Exchange Service, or SITES
, link. It offers information on all major military installations and their surrounding communities.
I welcome those coming to Peterson and thank those that are moving on for what they did every day for our Nation while they were here. I challenge everyone getting ready to transition to take advantage of the many resources available for a successful moving experience.
The 21st Space Wing prides itself on providing a high quality of life for our Airmen and unsurpassed installation support to the Peterson Air Force Base. Please take advantage of these services and best of luck with your PCS.
