ATLANTA, May 15, 2024 /3BL/ – In honor of Armed Forces Day, The Home Depot launched a new Military Moving hub designed to offer information tailored to military families to learn how to save time and money on their next Personally Procured Move (PPM), including a downloadable permanent change of station (PCS) checklist and more to the hundreds of thousands of active-duty military families who relocate every year.

From moving truck rentals and boxes to décor and cleaning materials, the website is designed to help military families take the stress out of PCS.
