The Housing Hype

Permanent Change of Station SPOTLIGHT

Housing occupant, how do you begin out-processing from housing?

Members should give at least 40 days advance notice of “intent to terminate” government-controlled family housing upon PCS, separation or retirement. However, if you have a short-notice assignment, please contact the Kaiserslautern Military Community Military Housing Office immediately so that you can be scheduled for “housing” pre and final inspections. Please keep in mind that the pre-termination inspection is to provide you with important information to help you in meeting your final inspection requirements.

Before the final inspection can be scheduled, please provide a copy of your PCS orders to the MHO.

For more information about out-processing from military family housing, please contact the KMC Housing Office Assistance Section.

Posting flags: policy guidance

Per SecDef policy, in addition to the American flag, residents in Air Force Housing are authorized to display or depict representational flags that promote unity and esprit de corps, including:

  • Flags of U.S. States and Territories and the District of Columbia;
  • Military Service flags;
  • Flag or General Officer flags;
  • Presidentially-appointed, Senate-confirmed civilian flags;
  • Senior Executive Service and Military Department-specific SES flags;
  • The POW/MIA flag;
  • Flags of other countries, for which the United States is an ally or partner, or for official protocol purposes;
  • Flags of organizations in which the United States is a member ( e.g., NATO); and
  • Ceremonial, command, unit, or branch flags or guidons.

This guidance applies to public displays or depictions of flags.

The flags and depictions on DOD installations must promote good order and discipline, and reflect the imperative that we treat all people with dignity and respect, while rejecting divisive symbols.
