Hello I am trying to get to Fort Lewis, How much time on station do I need to PCS?
Time-on-station (TOS) applies only to continental United States (CONUS)-based Soldiers. Soldiers based outside of the continental United States (OCONUS) have designated tour lengths. TOS is not a consideration in the U.S. Army assignment process for OCONUS-based Soldiers. Soldiers will remain on station for the maximum number of years possible in accordance with Army requirements and consistent with force stabilization rules.
Waiver authority regarding TOS requirements for assignments within or from CONUS is—
a. The Director of Enlisted Personnel, HRC, for Soldiers who will have served less than 2 years TOS, or who are assigned to a lifecycle managed (LM) unit, at the time of reassignment.
b. Division Chief, Enlisted Personnel Management Directorate (EPMD), HRC, for Soldiers who will have served more than 2 but less than 4 years TOS at the time of reassignment.1–12. RetainabilityCONUS-to-CONUS moves require 2 years retainability
(unless otherwise specified in this regulation) after arrival at the gaining installation.
Soldiers who are changing occupational specialty as a result of retraining must have a minimum of 1 year service retainability. The waiver authority for CONUS-to-CONUS assignments is—
a. The Director of Enlisted Personnel, HRC, for Soldiers who will have less than one year service retainability after arrival at the gaining installation.
b. Division Chief, Enlisted Personnel Management Directorate (EPMD), HRC, for Soldiers who will have more than 1 but less than 2 years retainability after arrival at the gaining installation.
