    When does he want to move you? Now or in 2015?

    If it is in 2015, just submit your paperwork once you get there. You have to be on station, in the Army at least and I figure the Navy is probably similar, for one year before you can get out. If you explain this to them, I am surprised they want to move you.

    Do your orders in the Navy specifically state the duration of time? Do they state: 2 years?

    You have the option to request a 1 year extension in your current billet, which may or may not be approved depending on several different factors. Your only other option is to take a new set of orders. You are not going to get 1 year orders. There are no 1 year PCS orders except overseas unaccompanied to Diego Garcia (there may be another similar unaccompanied OCONUS billet). You will most likely receive 2 year orders, and you will be able to get out after the minimum time on station, which would be 1 year. Be careful, because if the detailer offers you a billet with 3 year orders, the minimum time on station will be 2 years before you can get out. You'd be surprised how many LTs with 1 year left take 3 year orders and don't realize that they have just committed to an extra year.
