Make sure your permanent change of station orders state that you are authorized to travel the Alaska highway or the Alaska highway and marine highway, if you are going to be using both. If you deviate from your travel plans, you need to have your orders amended to receive travel pay that will adequately cover your mode of travel.
For your family to accompany you to Alaska, your PCS orders must say concurrent travel and have each family member's name on your orders. Each family member must have completed the Exceptional Family Member screening and have command sponsorship.
If your PCS orders say "deferred travel" for your family, then you need to travel to Alaska alone. After you arrive in Alaska, you can begin the command sponsorship process. Have your family complete the Exceptional Family Member screening at the losing post and wait to hear from you for further instructions.
For more information, you can inquire with your current Military Personnel Division, local Army Community Service or Exceptional Family Member Program Manager.
If you get married en route, you need to travel to Fort Wainwright, Alaska alone. If you get married before your permanent change of station, you must inform your commander and follow the procedures exactly as you are given them. The military will not pay for travel and housing of your spouse, if you do not follow proper procedures. During in-processing, you will receive instructions on how to acquire command sponsorship and necessary steps for travel arrangements for your new family. Please contact the Military Personnel Division/Soldier Actions Division at 907 353-2341, if you have any questions.
