Servicemembers selected for a dependent-restricted short tour for their second or later assignments can voluntarily apply to participate in the Follow-On assignment program. The Department of Defense designed the Follow-On assignment program to provide all servicemembers, officers and enlisted, with family stability, as well as to decrease permanent change of station costs. The application is a voluntary agreement with the servicemember not to use PCS allowances in exchange for advance assignment consideration of a stateside assignment, before they leave on a dependent-restricted short-tour assignment. If an servicemember chooses a follow on, the family can stay at the current stateside location or elect to move to the location of their follow-on assignment, providing it, too, is stateside.
