Permanent Duty Stations

When formal training (boot camp, School of Infantry, and military occupational schooling) is complete, each Marine is assigned to a Permanent Duty Station (PDS).

Your Marine may be stationed at any number of permanent duty stations around the world, depending on his or her Military Occupational Specialty (the job that your Marine will do while in the Corps).

The Unit Information Pages™ (UIPs), is a searchable database exclusively from MarineParents.com, Inc. By searching the database for your Marine's PDS, you'll find a page full of helpful information, links, message boards, Family Readines Officer names, and phone numbers.
