Service members are allowed eight days’ permissive TDY to travel to Eielson, arrange for housing and return to their duty station. The permissive TDY is at the service member’s expense. Check with your MPS for details. You may want to investigate the possibility of a military flight or “hop” to Eielson. Check with the local passenger terminal, as a hop for even a portion of your trip could save you money. Remember to stop by the housing management office — they must validate your permissive TDY orders. Also, be sure to check with housing prior to entering into any rental, lease or purchase agreement.
