Need to start househunting? In accordance with AR 600-8-10, 15 Feb 06, Soldiers are authorized ten (10) days PTDY for house hunting when enroute to the gaining installation. If you have approved PTDY from your losing unit, you must take your DA Form 31 (leave form) and a copy of your orders to the Housing Services Office (HSO) at 4514 Stuart Avenue on the day that your PTDY begins (or next duty day after a holiday or weekend) in order to have it validated. Failure to do so may result in the time being charged as ordinary leave. The leave form must be signed by a Lieutenant Colonel or above. Once the form is reviewed and validated by the HSO, you will be authorized to use those 10 days of non-chargeable leave to conduct your housing search. If you do not have approval from your losing unit to take PTDY, it can be requested from your gaining unit. If you sign a lease agreement prior to having your PTDY validated, you will forfeit your PTDY entitlement. For more information or if you have questions regarding PTDY, contact the HSO directly at 803-751-7566/5788/9323.
