(U.S. Marine Corps audio by Cpl. Benjamin Whitten) I'M CPL BEN WHITTEN WITH YOUR MARINE MINUTE. GONE ARE THE DAYS OF EMAILING BACK AND FORTH FOR WEEKS ON END TRYING TO SCHEDULE A MEETING. NOW IS THE TIME WHERE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE A CONSTANT CHAT WITH LEADERS, SUBORDINATES, CLIENTS, AND COWORKERS TO MAKE YOUR LIFE MUCH MORE EASILY. THE MARINE CORPS IS MIGRATING TO MICROSOFT OFFICE THREE-SIXTY-FIVE, A CLOUD-BASED PRODUCTIVITY SOFTWARE, THAT WILL IMPROVE THE CORPS’ ABILITY TO COLLABORATE, SHARE AND COMMUNICATE WHILE REDUCING LONG TERM COSTS. WITH OFFICE THREE-SIXTY-FIVE MARINES WILL BE ABLE TO WEBCHAT WITH TEAMS, SCREEN SHARE, AND WORK USING DIGITAL MEETING SPACES ALL WHILE WORKING ON THE SAME DOCUMENTS (SO LONG VERSION CONTROL CHAOS!). OH, AND P-S-T FILES, TIRED OF CREATING THEM, OR CAN’T REMEMBER HOW? OFFICE THREE-SIXTY-FIVE HAS 500-TIMES THE STORAGE SPACE OF TRADITIONAL OUTLOOK. FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT HOMEPORT.USMC.MIL. THAT IT FOR YOUR MARINE MINUTE. FOR MORE NEWS AROUND THE CORPS, GO TO MARINES.MIL.

    Marine Minute: PCS Wave
  4. In an effort to mitigate a backlog of commercial transportation request this upcoming PCS season, for the rest the calendar year, the Marine Corps is temporarily authorizing P-P-M payments equal to 100% of what it would pay a professional moving company. (U.S. Marine Corps audio by Lance Cpl. Fernando Moreno) HEY MARINES, LCPL FERNANDO MORENO HERE! THE P-C-S WAVE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER, AND YOU CAN EXPECT A BACKLOG OF COMMERCIAL TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS IMPACTING YOUR ABILITY TO MOVE. YOU CAN TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR MOVING PROCESS BY OPTING FOR A PERSONALLY PROCURED MOVE, OR P-P-M. FOR THE REST OF 2020, THE GOVERNMENT IS TEMPORARILY AUTHORIZING P-P-M PAYMENTS EQUAL TO 100% OF WHAT IT WOULD PAY A PROFESSIONAL MOVING COMPANY. FOR EXAMPLE, A SSGT WITH DEPENDENTS MOVING FROM QUANTICO TO CAMP PENDLETON WITH AN ESTIMATED HOUSEHOLD GOODS WEIGHT OF 9,000 POUNDS WOULD BE AUTHORIZED A PPM INCENTIVE BETWEEN $7,000 AND $9,000 DOLLARS. A 26 FT RENTAL TRUCK FOR TEN DAYS AND UNLIMITED MILES COST ROUGHLY $3,600 DOLLARS. THAT’S POTENTIALLY $4,000 OR $5,000 DOLLARS IN YOUR POCKET IF YOU’RE WILLING TO PACK, LOAD, AND UNLOAD ALL YOUR BELONGINGS. WHETHER YOU’RE DOING A TRADITIONAL COMMERCIAL MOVE OR A P-P-M, YOU STILL NEED TO GO TO MOVE.MIL TO START THE MOVE PROCESS. AND THAT’S YOUR MARINE MINUTE.
