My name is Rocky Essary.  I have served 4yrs in the military with 15 months of that spent in Kuwait and Iraq providing convoy security. Ok enough about me down to business. I am *ETS'ing out of the military and most of the cost for my move has to come from my pocket. During a PCS there are many advances you can get to compensate for the cost. Regrettably this is not the case for me. I need a moving van and a dolly to pull my vehicle. The cheapest I have found so far is $850 not including a $150 re-fundable deposit. That's not including gas and food that will be needed during the 2-day, 1200 mile adventure. Thank you so much for your time and consideration of assisting me.

*Note: ETS (Expiration Term of Service) is the completion date of Enlisted Soldier's contract.

I signed out on terminal leave this morning at 0015. I was scheduled to clear housing at 1530 on Friday, however they called me today saying they needed me to leave today. I told them this wasn't possible. They told me that since they already had another family for my house, they would kick me and my stuff out onto the curb tomorrow. So i guess I need to leave tomorrow if that is at all possible.
