Is there anything more polarizing in the military community than a do-it-yourself move? (Just kidding, but mention that you’re thinking about a DITY move to your next station, and you’ll get a ton of unsolicited advice. . . fast.) Every family has it’s own reasons for choosing the way they pack out, but they all come with emotions. Here are 13 that you’ll definitely understand if you’ve ever packed up and moved on your own:
