 They pay the person to move themselves (dity, do it yourself) or they have a moving company do it, or a combo of the twp, partial dity. 
Only time i had movers do it for me was from korea to ft. campbell, ky.,  then a redirect during mid-shipping to ft. hood, tx., since i was only in ky for 1.5 months and was lucky enough to get in the company moving to hood.

I just went to your gallery.  glad to see all the large slabs you have made.  I was afraid you were jumping in over most peoples heads.  thanks for you and your wifes' service to our country.  I now have little concerns for you ability to pull this off.  @burdman_22
Don't give me too much credit doc, I'm 100% sure I'm in way over my head with this tree...but...can't learn to swim without getting your head wet, so we'll see what happens, haha.
As far as the military moving us, there is a weight limit when they move us, and we would exceed that with like two slabs, haha. I think what I may end up having to do is find someone with a tractor trailer, load them all onto it and move them all to Kentucky in one go (since KY is going to be their home for the next 4-8 years).

Thats some serious twist in that last log. Grain runout is going to be an issue to deal with in those slabs, you think?
I thought the same but Surprisingly most stayed fairly flat during drying.

Thats good to hear. 
Ive got a 60 incher buried deep, deep in a hand stacked pile. One day, when Im dead and gone and my wife auctions off all my junk, someone will be really happy to see that slab. 

That brings up a good point actually. Whats the point of milling all this stuff if I cant even access it? I have no equipment to handle stuff. So once its stacked -it aint moving!

Heres the log 


 

BTW, both of those boys are in their 20s now. 
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

Thats a great pic! It would be really cool to take a couple of the slabs from the log in the pic  that are around 42 wide and make dining room tables from them for your two sons in the pic!
