How long does the Marine have to stay at their first PDS before they can come home and move their family and belongings? Do they leave MOS and hop on a plane to go straight to their PDS? Do they report in for a day and get to come home to move? They receive 10 days to move? Thank y'all for answering my questions.

Well to my understanding they have to finish their mos schooling then they fly home and have 14 days to move their family to their pds pr at least thats what my husband was told.
Well my husband graduated mos last Thursday and went straight to California and is going through the check in process right now. Here he will set up your move and on or off base housing and he is usually there a week before he can come move you.
Good thing you just said that because Ive been hearing so many different stories my dads a marine and he said the same thing you said so I think I am going to listen to him because my husbands recruiter couldnt tell us much of anything because he said it would be his first time putting someone in whos already married.

I know haha it takes forever!

It really is a command by command decision.  There really is no real set turnaround time or procedure.  Every PCS is different for every person!  I hope you get out there soon!
