About PCS Italy
Until a year ago, my life was pretty average. In February 2010, my husband received the news that we would be leaving our quiet life in Kansas for Italy. While in the Army, my husband had spent a good deal of time in Germany (before me, of course). Now as a Department of the Army (DOA) Civilian, he’d be heading back to Europe.
Italy had been on his “dream sheet” of assignments, but I never thought we’d actually get to go. After a few months of frazzled nerves, some really unpleasant flights and a good deal of paperwork; we made it to our new duty station in Vicenza, Italy.
I am a natural researcher. I like to know what I am getting myself into before starting a new project. I did find a good deal of information, but it was scattered here and there. I decided it would be nice to put the information I have learned in one place. This information and website is not at all associated with the U.S. Army and doesn’t provide any professional or legal advice. However, I have learned a bit of information about life in Italy, the Vicenza area and Caserma Ederle. I hope someone discovers this blog and it helps them in their transition.
Italy is a beautiful place with opportunities to experience history in a way impossible in the United States. Sharing my experience and knowledge is a way to give others a glimpse into Italy. This information will be great for visitors to the area or for those who make Caserma Ederle home for a few years.
