8. WHY ARE PCS ORDERS SO LENGTHY? A discussion initiated by the MPD Chief, Camp Humphreys, Korea:  “The short answer to this question is – They do not have to be.  By regulation orders will usually be limited to one sheet (front and back of a page). Orders will be provided to substantiate entitlements and documents of key events.  You would think that would be the end of the discussion, but it’s not.  We’ve come to this point in the Army where PCS orders can range anywhere from 5 to 12 pages in length….” See the entire conversation and participate at the following link. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/thread/251344
