Are you tired of your post? Want to move closer to home? Trying to get away from an ex?
Put yourself up in the comments with your Rank, MOS, & Duty Location, and how much time you have left there. I'm not sure exactly how the Army works it, but I think that you can swap, NOT PCS, at your own cost if those elements match.
EXAMPLE: 13B10, @ Ft. Sill, wants Ft. Drum or Ft. Bliss firstname.lastname@example.org
The soldier initiating the SWAP includes the following statement on the DA Form 4187:
“I have read and understand the provisions of AR 614–200, and hereby waive any and all claims against the U.S. Government for transportation for myself, my family members, my household goods, and my personal property incident to travel and shipment resulting from reassignment from (current station) Fort Defense, Virginia, to (new location) Fort Service, New York, as requested by me. I further agree to waive any and all claims against the U.S. Government for mileage allowances and/or per diem allowance both for myself and my family”
The initiating soldier also includes the following statement on the form, from the soldier he/she has agreed to SWAP with:
I agree to an exchange assignment with FOX, Guy S.,000-00-0000, SGT 11B2O presently stationed at Fort Defense, VA. If this request is approved, I understand that all expenses (including transportation of family members and household goods) incident to this reassignment will be borne by me. I further understand that any time used as travel time between duty stations will be charged against me as ordinary leave. The following personal data are submitted: Name: WOLF, John S. Grade: SGT, E5 MOS: 11B Unit and station: Co A, 2d BN, 4th Inf, 86th Inf Division,
Fort Service, NY 01122.
Both soldiers must agree to the SWAP, must be of the same rank, same MOS (job), and be similarly qualified.
Exchanges must be CONUS (Continental United States) to CONUS or OCONUS (Overseas) within their same OCONUS command.
The commanders of both soldiers concerned must concur in the proposed exchange assignment, and agree on the date of assignment.
Soldiers must serve at least 12 months at current duty station and have at least 12 months time remaining in service upon arrival at the gaining installation.
Soldiers will pay all costs incurred in relocation, and all travel time will be charged as ordinary leave.
Eligibility for foreign service does not change, and no stabilization period is authorized for either soldier.
Soldiers in receipt of AIs, or in a deployed status, are not eligible.
If a married Army couple currently occupying a common household is separated because one soldier is granted an exchange assignment, the other soldier may not apply for reassignment to the same installation to reestablish a joint residence.
